Live: Kooyong Stadium, Melbourne

David Bowie performed at the Kooyong Stadium in Melbourne, Australia, on 23 November 1987, as part of the Glass Spider Tour.

It was the 85th and penultimate date of the tour, which began on 30 May in Rotterdam, and the last of four nights in Melbourne.

This was a truncated show due to adverse weather conditions. Bowie and the band performed without the dancers and much of the elaborate Glass Spider stage set.

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.
