Live: Olympic Stadium, Montreal

David Bowie performed at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Canada, on 30 August 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

It was the 45th date of the tour, which began on 30 May in Rotterdam.

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.

The 2007 DVD Glass Spider came with a two-CD set with the audio from this show. It was remastered and included in the 2018 box set Loving The Alien (1983-1988) as the live album Glass Spider (Live Montreal ’87).
