Live: Boondall Entertainment Centre, Brisbane

David Bowie performed at the Boondall Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Australia, on 29 October 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

It was the 72nd date of the tour, which began on 30 May in Rotterdam, and the first of two consecutive nights in Brisbane.

Advance sales for the Australian leg of the tour were $8.6 million, surpassing Michael Jackson’s record for the Australian dates of his Bad Tour.

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 returned to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, as it was by then known, on 17 February 2004 during A Reality Tour.
