Live: Scandinavium, Gothenburg

David Bowie performed at the Scandinavium in Gothenburg, Sweden, on 4 June 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

It was the 46th 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 flew down to Gothenburg on the south-west coast of Sweden. It was Sunday and the gig went well but the town was dead.
