David Bowie and Hype performed at Beckenham’s Three Tuns pub on 1 March 1970.
This was Bowie’s 38th appearance at the venue, and his first with the new band. It was for Growth – the Beckenham Arts Lab, which he had co-founded the year before.
This was his penultimate appearance at the Arts Lab, which was mostly on Sunday nights at the pub. 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.
