Live: Lang Park, Brisbane

David Bowie performed at Lang Park in Brisbane, Australia, on 21 November 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

It was the 70th 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.

The show that night was great fun. The crowd were very lively as often happens in a repressive area. One girl down the front kept fainting and being lifted out of the crowd over the barrier to recover. I just wondered if she was faking it.
