Live: Falconer Teatret, Copenhagen

David Bowie performed at the Falconer Teatret in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 31 May 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

It was the 43rd 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.

It was a hot afternoon when we checked into our hotel. We were just off the main city square, a large cobbled area dominated by the Radhus, an old red-brick parliament building. Copenhagen is an ancient city, the skyline a jumble of pointed roofs and green copper spires like the opening of a Disney Hans Anderson cartoon.

This was the first of two consecutive nights at the venue. The Falconer Teatret, later renamed the Falkonersalen, was part of Copenhagen’s Falkoner Centre complex.

Bowie had previously performed there on 29 April and 30 April 1976 during the Isolar Tour. He returned with Tin Machine on 20 January 1996 for the It’s My Life Tour.
