Show notes (Marcus Buick);
– The front of board area resembled a frat party mosh pit type of environment (it was a general admission show) and copious amount of alcohol had been consumed by the general public. The overall background noise presents an opportunity for an Izotope remaster of this show/event.
– The use of sub-cardioids in this environment, in my opinion, revealed too many bass frequencies at the point-space of recording resulting in node frequencies of bass-dominance that should be alleviated (equalized).

Sacramento resident Brad Warren had the opportunity to see Bowie in concert six times, including once in Sacramento at Cal Expo for Bowie’s 1990 Sound and Vision tour.

“He wore black pants, a white frilled shirt and a black vest and was the Thin White Duke that night. For the encore, he roughed up and started with Ziggy Stardust saying, “this is a song about a little girl with pink hair and no eyebrows,” recalls Warren. “During the show someone threw an orange on stage which he caught, took a large theatrical bite from and then spewed back out into the crowd! I think for all the young artistic types back then we were all drawn towards him and his music. We felt a bit alien and he celebrated that.”

Bowie’s far-reaching influence on music, fashion and culture is undeniable. Beyond that, he gave the disenfranchised, the alien, the “weirdos” permission to be themselves.

“He made it ok to be a weirdo,” says Johnny Taylor. “If I liked something that wasn’t popular, I remember thinking ‘why should I care what anybody thinks – would David Bowie care what anybody thinks?’”

David Bowie Tour band 1990 – Sound+Vision Tour
Bowie specifically chose a smaller band for the tour, saying in a contemporary interview that “It’s a much smaller sound. It’s not quite as orchestrated as any of the other tours. The plus of that is that there is a certain kind of drive and tightness that you get with that embryonic line-up, where everybody is totally reliant on the other two or three guys, so everybody gives a lot more”
David Bowie – vocals, guitar, saxophone[
