This was the last concert of the North American tour.
“On bass well-known Dutch painter Carmine Rojas” Bowie says! “You probably know this is the last date of our North American tour. I’d like to thank my crew very much for carrying out a very hard,wonderful world,thank you very much lads. I’d like to thank all the people in America that made us feel so much at home. I’d like to thank Keay Fogg’s radio station for playing ‘Super Requests’ earlier in the morning” ,then he announces Young Americans: “This is a little thing that I just wrote earlier”.
