The second of three consecutive days of rehearsals for David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs Tour took place on 9 June 1974.
The rehearsals took place at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. The Hunger City set caused a number of technical problems, including distorted sound, an unstable bridge above the stage, and an unreliable cherry picker used during ‘Space Oddity’.
The Diamond Dogs Tour kicked off in Montreal on 14 June 1974.
