David Bowie and the Spiders From Mars performed at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, on 30 November 1972.
It was the 80th date of the Ziggy Stardust Tour, which had begun on 29 January 1972.
The famous Tower Theater in Philadelphia was to be our final venue on this first Bowie and the Spiders US tour. We had sold out the first two dates and a third had to be added, which also sold out. We played three blistering shows in a perfect finale to the most amazing three months of my life so far.
