Nostalgia: David Bowie on stage at the Royal Court theatre on August 2, 1997
As the world mourns the passing of David Bowie , we look back at one of his Liverpool shows.
The legendary musician appeared at the Royal Court Theatre back in August 1997.
It wasn’t his first show in the city – early performances included one at the Liverpool Stadium in June 1972 when he appeared with the Spiders From Mars, including guitarist Mick Ronson.
The Ziggy Stardust tour returned to Liverpool the following year when Bowie and his band played two shows at the Empire on June 10.

But it was the first time he had been back in 24 years, and on August 2, 1997, excited Bowie fans queued up to see the star perform a set at the Roe Street art deco theatre as part of his Earthling tour.
The show opened with Quicksand from Hunky Dory, the lyrics including the lines “I’m not a prophet or a stone-age man, just a mortal with potential of a superman”.
It also included Fashion, Fame, Jean Genie and Under Pressure.
Bowie obviously enjoyed the experience as he returned to the Royal Court in November 1991 with his Tin Machine tour.

David Bowie Tour band 1997 Earthling Tour
Superb Bowie Performance From The Earthling Tour. David Bowie’s 20th studio album was originally released in February 1997 on Arista Records. Earthling showcased an electronica-influenced sound partly inspired by the industrial and drum and bass culture of the 1990s. It was the first album Bowie self-produced since 1974’s Diamond Dogs.
The Earthling Tour started on 7 June 1997 at Flughafen Blankensee in Lübeck, Germany, continuing through Europe and North America before reaching a conclusion in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 7 November 1997. On August 14, ‘97, Bowie performed at Hungary’s Student Island Festival in Budapest, where he put on a quite extraordinary show, accompanied as he was by Reeves Gabrels on guitar, Gail Ann Dorsey on bass, Zack Alford on drums and Mike Garson on keyboards. Playing just a few tracks from the new record plus a fine selection of back catalogue gems, the entire show was broadcast, both across Eastern Europe and indeed in the US too on selected FM stations. Previously unreleased this remarkable gig is now available on this priceless CD for the first time..
