Live: Blue Web Club, Perth

David Bowie began his first headlining tour on 7 November 1969, with a show at the Blue Web Club in Perth, Scotland.

Bowie’s support act was Junior’s Eyes, who were also his backing band. Most of the group had played on Bowie’s second album, which was released on 14 November.

Bowie was paid £100 for each show. The dates of the Scottish tour were Perth (7 November), Auchinleck (8), Kilmarnock (8), Dunfermline (9), Kirkcaldy (14), Edinburgh (14), and Dundee (15).

After 9 November Junior’s Eyes had to perform tour dates of their own, leaving Bowie to play solo sets. As a result, scheduled shows at Glasgow (10), Stirling (11), Aberdeen (12), and Hamilton (13) were cancelled.
