Live: Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

The sixth date of David Bowie’s tour with Humble Pie took place at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London’s Southbank Centre on 21 October 1969.

This was the first date of the Changes ’69 tour after an eight-day break.

The tour also featured Love Sculpture and Samson. Humble Pie featured Bowie’s former schoolmate – and future collaborator – Peter Frampton on guitar.

Bowie had originally been asked to do a mime set, but instead performed an acoustic solo set. He was invited onto the tour by Andrew Loog Oldham, former manager of the Rolling Stones, who now looked after Humble Pie.

The nine dates of the Changes ’69 tour were: Coventry (8 October), Leeds (9), Birmingham (10), Brighton (11), Bristol (13), London (21), Edinburgh (23), Manchester (25), and Liverpool (26).
