Live: Eriksbergsvarvet, Gothenburg

David Bowie performed at the Eriksberg docks in Gothenburg, Sweden, on 27 June 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

It was the 15th date of the tour, which began on 30 May in Rotterdam.

The show was originally scheduled to take place at Ullevi in Gothenburg, but was moved to Eriksberg after a concert by Bruce Springsteen, caused around £2.7m in damages to the venue.

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.
