Live: Sullivan Stadium, Foxborough

David Bowie performed at Sullivan Stadium in Foxborough, Maryland, on 3 September 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

It was the 48th date of the tour, which began on 30 May in Rotterdam.

The show set a record for the fastest sellout at the venue, which remained unsurpassed until The Who sold 100,000 tickets for two shows in under eight hours in 1989.

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.

Bowie had previously played the Sullivan Stadium on 31 August 1983 during the Serious Moonlight Tour. He returned on 21 July 1990 for the Sound+Vision Tour.
