Live: Stadio Flaminio, Rome

David Bowie performed at the Stadio Flaminio in Rome, Italy, on 15 June 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

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

This was also the first of two consecutive nights at the stadium. Both nights saw rioting from fans who were unable to buy tickets.

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.
