Live: David Bowie and the Riot Squad, Tiles Club, London

David Bowie performed with the Riot Squad on Thursday 13 April 1967 at Tiles Club in London.

Tiles was situated at 79-89 Oxford Street in the heart of the capital. It opened in March 1966 and closed in November the following year.

Bowie and the Riot Squad had previously performed at the venue on 6 April.

On this occasion Bowie wore a green corduroy jacket he had previously worn on stage with the Konrads. Bowie customised the jacket by adding blue lines with ink. He later gave it away, and in 2005 it was bought at auction by Bromley Museum.
