Live: Frisco’s Club, Edinburgh

The sixth show of David Bowie’s Scottish tour of 1969 was at Frisco’s Club in Edinburgh on 14 November.

Earlier in the evening Bowie had performed at the Adam Smith Hall in Kirkcaldy.

This was Bowie’s first headlining tour. His support act for the early dates 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.
