Live: Entertainment Centre, Perth

David Bowie performed at the Perth Entertainment Centre in Perth, Australia, on 15 November 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

This was the 68th date of the tour, which began on 29 March in San Diego, and the second of two consecutive nights in Perth.

His guitarists were Carlos Alomar and Adrian Belew. Simon House was on electric violin, Sean Mayes played piano, and Dennis Garcia was on keyboards and synthesizers for this and the next and previous Australian shows. George Murray played bass guitar and Dennis Davis was on drums.

Before the show that night a couple of pissed-up policemen tried to barge their way back-stage but Eric kept them out. They were off duty and from another state so they had no right to be there. They promised us trouble back east but this obviously never materialised.
