David Bowie performed at Beckenham’s Three Tuns pub on 8 February 1970.
This was his 34th appearance at the venue. It was for Growth – the Beckenham Arts Lab, which he had co-founded the year before.
Bowie often appeared at the Arts Lab events, which were mostly on Sunday nights at the pub. But towards the end of 1969 his interest had started to wane as his career began to take off, and by early 1970 his appearances became less frequent.
