The seventh and final show of David Bowie’s Scottish tour of 1969 was at Dundee’s Caird Hall on 15 November.
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.
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.
Bowie returned to Caird Hall during the Ziggy Stardust Tour on 17 May 1973.
