Live: Pavilion de Paris, Paris

David Bowie performed at the Pavilion de Paris in Paris, France, on 25 May 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

It was the 40th 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.

We played two nights there – noisy crowd, mixture of very chic and very young. Lots of flowers were thrown and a few fluffy animals.
