David Bowie performed at the Stadio Comunale in Florence, Italy, on 9 June 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

It was the sixth date of the tour, which began on 30 May in Rotterdam.

Prior to the show, a lighting engineer, Michael Clark, died after falling from scaffolding at the stadium. The following day another worker fell while building the set in Milan.

Bowie’s guitarists were Carlos Alomar and Peter Frampton. Erdal Kızılçay played keyboards, trumpet, congas, and violin, and Richard Cottle was on keyboards, saxophone, and tambourine. Carmine Rojas played bass guitar and Alan Childs was on drums and percussion.
