Live: Davie Jones and the Manish Boys, City Hall, Newcastle

David Bowie’s fifth and penultimate tour date with Gene Pitney took place on Saturday 5 December 1964, with two shows at the City Hall in Newcastle.

Davie Jones and the Manish Boys were the unbilled ‘guest stars’ on the final six shows of US singer Pitney’s tour of the UK.

The band’s tour dates were on consecutive nights from 1-6 December, and took them to Wigan, Hull, Edinburgh, Stockton-on-Tees, Newcastle, and Scarborough.

The Manish Boys replaced Bobby Shafto and The Roofraisers as the tour’s opening act. Also on the bill were Marianne Faithfull, the Kinks, the Mike Cotton Sound, Kim Weston, the Earl Van Dyke Band, and headliner Gene Pitney. The tour was promoted by Brian Epstein and the Arthur Howes Agency.
