Live: King George’s Hall, Blackburn

David Bowie and the Spiders From Mars performed at Blackburn’s King George’s Hall on 31 May 1973.

It was the 126th date of the Ziggy Stardust Tour, which had begun on 29 January 1972.

Bowie sent a packed St George’s Hall [sic], Blackburn absolutely wild last night. By the end of the concert, everybody in the hall was standing up, many on their chairs for a better view. Two girls even got on to the stage and had to be bodily carried away by stewards.
