    I felt the exact same way about the 2004 Reality Tour show I caught in Cleveland. Then again, we were in the nose bleeds, so it kind of felt like watching it on TV anyway.

    Thanks, I dont usually give my self much credit for whatever, but I do have to say, today I wore my ministry football jersey with and anarchist symbols all over it, and I still have partially pink hair (not a wig lol), so I do love to push the envelope at times, not just because it is 911 .. x****

    I voted No, I could care less

    because well I haven't seen him and "I have always wanted to" isn't how I feel about him as well, no middle ground. I would definitely watch him if he came to Coachella

    OK, I saw him once, but it was only for two songs, when he joined Morrissey on stage for an encore at a show in Los Angeles -- does that count?

    If that counts (which it does because it answers the question), then i must include the 2 songs that Bowie did with Arcade Fire when i saw them in Central Park in 2005. That was excellent.

    I saw Bowie 3 times on the NIN/Bowie tour (although I left early for one of those dates). I wasn't into Bowie that much, although I liked some hits, and I liked the Bowie show then. Of course, I was primarily a huge NIN fan, so maybe that's why I enjoyed it. Bowie was fuckin HAWT then even at 50-whatever. I was FRONT AND CENTER at the Phoenix date in the pit.

    one thing that got me during the thin white duke period, all of those shows i saw before, sure he made the band, but the visuals were outstanding , along the lines of yes and elp .. and then he came out as the duke, the whole show (except maybe the last song, i might be wrong) was nothing but black and white everywhere, the spots (they didnt have vary lights then i dont think) and there he was in just a single color suit .. it was great, but what a difference from the early years .... a couple of more bands back then no one seems to talk about, here anyway, were pretty damn good ... the kinks (the original oasis bros fight lol), Love, velvet underground, and T Rex .... what a great time for music .... x****

    The Thin White Duke persona is my absolute favorite Bowie persona ever..I love that whole fucking period...If I ever see Bowie again, He MUST play Station to Station.

    I saw one of the NIN/Bowie shows (Chicago) when he was sick, so his vocals were a little off.

    The most recent show I caught was 05? in Moline, IL. Bowie's voice was outstanding and I was surprised at how young he looked. I was also surprised to see so many Bowie fans show up in such a rural, backwoods town.

    He came to Vancouver is 2003. I would have been 15. I was considering going, but I had very little money... so I decided not to go. Big mistake. I was young though, so its not a major regret.

    I also saw Bowie with NIN in 1995 (at Shoreline). It was pretty cool, NIN was the highlight for me, but Bowie put on a very good performance.

    I've seen him at Angels stadium, Dodger stadium, and the Forum with NIN. The performance with NIN was horrible.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

If so, then he ran into problems at the San Diego show when I saw hime. Seems the thing got jammed as he was all the way out above the fans up in that little basket like thing trying not to panic while he was singing.
