Live: Hara Arena, Trotwood

David Bowie performed at the Hara Arena in Trotwood, Ohio, on 24 June 1974.

It was the ninth date of the Diamond Dogs Tour, which had kicked off in Montreal on 14 June.

The musical director was Michael Kamen, who also played electric piano, Moog synthesizer, and oboe. Earl Slick played guitar, and Mike Garson was on piano and Mellotron. The bass guitarist was Herbie Flowers, and the drummer was Tony Newman.

The backing singers were Geoff MacCormack (billed as Warren Peace) and Gui Andrisano. The line-up was completed by David Sanborn and Richard Grando on saxophone and flute, and percussionist Pablo Rosario.

This was Bowie’s only performance in Trotwood. The Hara Arena was demolished in 2021.
