Manchester 14.07.87

Bowie came back to the UK for 2 more shows towards the end of the European tour and by now the criticism of the set being too dominated by the less-interesting new material had started to tell so the setlist was starting to change. Newly added were ‘Jean Genie’, ‘Young Americans’ and ‘White Light White Heat’ and ‘Zeroes’ was dropped. He also did ‘Time’ at this one so it was a very good show.

The support acts were Alison Moyet and Terence Trent D’Arby who were both very good.

There are recordings of all the 1987 shows and some are excellent but not of this show.
