Live: Three Tuns, Beckenham

David Bowie’s fifth performance at Beckenham’s Three Tuns pub took place on Sunday 1 June 1969.

From this night it was rebranded from its initial incarnation The Folk Club into Growth – the Beckenham Arts Lab, which more accurately reflected its multimedia nature.

The Arts Lab was Bowie’s primary live focus in the middle of 1969, with only a handful of performances elsewhere.
