    Default Has anyone here seen Bowie live?

    With all the talk of wanting him to headline, I just wanted to know.
    BTW: have I ever told the board that I have actually meet Sir David Jones?

    It was back in 1999 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The hotel had one of those shitty music awards things going on and they were going to honor Bowie with a lifetime achievement award. At the time my mother was one of the telecom mangers and got ahold of a all access pass to the show. So I spent my entire time there looking for him. Along the way I ran into some crap celebs and Garth Brooks funny enough (the man is one of the nicest people you will ever meet). When I finally found Bowie he had his crew with him so I was too terrified to go up to him. Then at the end of the awards ceremony Bowie performed Rebel Rebel and when he got off the stage my brother who was with me, told me it was my last chance to meet him. So I meekly came up to him (here I was expecting him to tell me to fuck off) and asked for his autograph. He put down his cig and water bottle pushed the suits talking to him aside and gave me his autograph AND his thanked me for it!!!! I still have the pen he used and the notebook. I was 16 at the time.

    my Bowie experiences are the couple of times he pulled out the suck. i have trusted friends who have seen amazing Bowie shows that i did not attend.

    i already told Salah of my late 80's witnessing from the 3rd row of an overproduced and choreographed Glass Spider tour. i thought everyone was so locked into what had to be done and synced the soul of the show was destroyed.

    i also saw Bowie when he opened for NIN. Bowie is a changling and that is great...except for when it comes off as immitation. He was all hype over Trent at the time and it was eveident in the show. i wanted to see Bowie, not Bowie as NIN.

    i don't consider myself a good source as to your motivation to see Bowie. If he is a headliner, i will be there.

    ew...the glass spider tour..I heard nothing but terrible things about that tour. My 1st exposure to Bowie was his 50th birthday concert video. My father showed it to me and I was hooked for the man. I went out and collected nearly all his work. One of my fav albums is still his Earthling album which alot of people don't like. But I saw him perform 2 songs at that award show: Thursday's Child and Rebel, Rebel. And I saw him at Area2 which kind of sucked but we had really shitty seats and the sound wasn't that great. In fact (and this has been discussed before) Area2 just sucked despite having Bowie and Outkast there. I have recordings of that NIN/Bowie tour and I know a few people who went and they said it was fantastic. But alot of the fans went for NIN and left when Bowie came on.

    His hair was spiked and blond. He had the biggest platform sneakers I ever saw in real life and a greenish and brown outfit. He just put the cig in his mouth and puffed away the whole time. I honestly thought because of the people around him that he was going to tell me to fuck off. But he was just so damn friendly.

    I saw Bowie in San Diego but, thanks to that era of Thai Sticks and Hash Oil, I'll be damned if I can remember the exact year! I wouldn't mind re-enacting that evening again!

    What about a vote for just no? I ended up voting "No, I could care less" but that isn't entirely true. I haven't seen him, I'm not dying to see him but I wouldn't say that I would care less. I would totally see him in hopes that he would play the old school, funky ass, version of FAME. That song is porno.

    My dad took me when I was a kid, around 10 or 11....then I was Bowie, Aladdin Insane, for Halloween the next year....It was the Glass Spider Tour @ the LA Sports Arena...I didn't know enough to give a proper review

    The next time was at the Forum in '95 or so with NIN...sad to say, but he absolutely did come off as a cheap imitation of Trent, especially after just watching a blistering set of Trent in his prime!

    The Reality Tour 2003-Bowie was unbelievable at the Shrine in LA, he far surpassed any expectations I had for a 56 yr old man performing at that point in his career, but he sounded wonderful, and looked amazing

    I am so jealous of Mr canexplain seeing him on the Ziggy Stardust Tour!

    yea i suck, i know but it really was bowie at his prime ...That was also around the time when Genesis was cool and it was sort of a battle between bowie and peter Gabriel (when he used to come on in all kinds of wild costumes) we used to compare the two and now, I think they are totally different, but Gabriel is pretty cool too .x

    yes, but they were a lot different the first few years ... phil was just some dummer in the band ... listen to a lamb lies down on broadway, and you will see the difference .. i saw gabriel when he went sort of stright and was doing the red rain tour and it was damn good ... x****
