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 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.
blazed, don't fuck with ron.
he's ten thousand times cooler than you could ever be. he's got more awesome in his beard than you've got in your whole family.
Thanks, I donít 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 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****
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 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!
It's good to know that all that hash oil and thai stick hadn't permanently damaged my memory process...I just re-read this thread and Ivankay's recall of the Glass Spider's Tour jogged my memory...Is that the tour where Bowie went out over the audience on a really tall boom or gaf? 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.
