Live: Memorial Hall, Kansas City, Kansas

David Bowie and the Spiders From Mars performed at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City on 15 October 1972.

It was the 66th date of the Ziggy Stardust Tour, which had begun on 29 January 1972.

The date was a late addition to the tour, and had been rescheduled from 12 October at short notice. As a result, only a small proportion of the tickets were sold. Frustrated, Bowie drank heavily before the show and at one point fell off the stage.
