Live: Seminole Turf Club, Casselberry

David Bowie performed at the Seminole Turf Club in Casselberry, Florida on 3 July 1974.

It was the 17th date of the Diamond Dogs Tour, which had kicked off in Montreal on 14 June. This was Bowie’s only performance in Casselberry.

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.

Request: If anyone can help with the location of the Seminole Turf Club, please leave a comment below. A Google/Apple Maps link to the precise place would be hugely helpful, but failing that a detailed description would be much appreciated.
