Live: Civic Centre, Providence

David Bowie performed at the Civic Centre in Providence, Rhode Island, on 5 May 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

It was the 27th date of the tour, which began on 29 March in San Diego.

Bowie’s guitarists were Carlos Alomar and Adrian Belew. Simon House was on electric violin, Sean Mayes played piano, and Roger Powell was on keyboards and synthesizers. George Murray played bass guitar and Dennis Davis was on drums.

The gig that night was in Providence, about an hour’s drive away. I dozed most of the way, ate too much before the show and didn’t really enjoy it. This gig was recorded for the live album.
