Live: Expo Commemoration Park, Suita

David Bowie performed at the Expo Commemoration Park in Suita, Japan, on 9 December 1978, as part of the Isolar II Tour.

It was the 77th 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 lively show with more streamers thrown. David caught one and mimed a tug of war with the kid at the other end.
