Cardiff 21.06.87

Unlike the previous two nights this was a glorious concert; perfect sunny day and the longest day of the year so light until almost the end of the concert. Bowie was the first artist to play at the famous rubgy stadium and there were over 50,000 people there. It was a Sunday night and there was a strict curfew (I think) and also – in those days – there was no licence to sell alcohol in Wales on Sundays so the refreshments were orange juice and slices of melon.

Support acts were Big Country and the Screaming Blue Messiahs. There are recordings of all the 1987 shows and some are excellent but not of this show.
