Concert #35 - David Bowie at the LA Sports Arena (October 13, 1987)

This was the Los Angeles leg of David Bowie's Glass Spider world tour. Although I wasn't a big fan, I went to the show with a Brit named John, we had decent seats on the left side of the stage, not too high up. The show had an elaborate stage, complete with acrobatic dancers, light show and all the rest. The sound wasn't great, the special effects did not impress me, so I went home a bit unhappy.


David's band included Peter Frampton, who played lead guitar and did some backup vocals.

Many years later, the Glass Spider Tour videos found on YouTube look much better to me than the concert itself back in 1987. Go figure.
