Live: Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Phoenix

David Bowie performed at Phoenix’s Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum on 14 September 1974.

This was the 41st 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 and Carlos Alomar played guitar, and Mike Garson was on piano and Mellotron. The bass guitarist was Doug Rauch, and the drummer was Greg Errico.

The backing singers were Ava Cherry, Robin Clark, Geoff MacCormack (billed as Warren Peace), Gui Andrisano, Luther Vandross, Diane Sumler, and Anthony Hinton. The line-up was completed by David Sanborn and Richard Grando on saxophone and flute, and percussionist Pablo Rosario.

Bowie returned to the Memorial Coliseum on 15 February 1976 for the Isolar Tour, and on 30 March 1978 for the Isolar II Tour. His final show there was on 17 August 1983 during the Serious Moonlight Tour.
