Live: Falconer Teatret, Copenhagen

David Bowie performed at the Falconer Teatret in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 1 June 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

It was the 44th 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 were playing two nights here but to only 1,500 a night. Soon after we started, when ‘Warszawa’ was ringing through the hall like a bell chiming the hour, a tall blond gay arrived and seated himself in the front row with such a regal air that he seemed to be granting an audience to David Bowie.

This was the second 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.
