David Bowie attends the premiere of Live And Let Die

David and Angie Bowie attended the world premiere of Live And Let Die on 6 July 1973.

The premiere of the eighth James Bond film took place at the Odeon cinema in London’s Leicester Square. David and Angie were accompanied by his manager Tony Defries.

The guest of honour was Princess Anne. Also in attendance were Paul and Linda McCartney.

I don’t know why he is giving it up. I should have asked him. I met him last night at the premiere of Live And Let Die… I think it’s a pity. I’ll tell you why it’s a pity; it’s because I haven’t seen his show yet! I’d like to see it. So come on David. Just do a quick one for me!
