Live: Slane Castle, Slane

David Bowie performed at Slane Castle in Slane, Ireland, on 11 July 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

It was the 23rd date of the tour, which began on 30 May in Rotterdam.

A fab drowned shortly before the concert began while swimming in River Boyne while attempting to access the backstage area. Furthermore, during the show Bowie was forced to pause ‘Absolute Beginners’ due to a crush in the crowd.

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.
