Live: Hanover Grand, London

David Bowie performed a warm-up show for the Earthling Tour at the Hanover Grand in London, England, on 2 June 1997.

This was the first of two consecutive nights at the 720-capacity venue, ahead of the tour beginning on 7 June in Lübeck, Germany.

Although most of the tickets went to BowieNet members, some were exchanging hands for up to £100 on the black market.

Bowie performed a rock show followed by a shorter drum and bass-inspired set. Prior to the interval Bowie announced that a “little drum and bass set” would follow, prompting a number of fans to leave the venue.
