Tonight In Frankfurt - With Susans And Mirearth

on October 17, 2003

David Bowie gets lost in a Frankfurt forest by Miriam Geelhoed.

Sunshine entered our Frankfurt day...

David Bowie and his band played a scorching, nay, high-octane (whatever that means) 26-song set in Frankfurt tonight. But seriously, it sounds like this was one of the stand-out shows of the tour so far, even if I did get my main confirmation of this fact from a gibbering BowieNetter who goes by the name of Susans.

Tonight's Hamburg Set List

on October 16, 2003

David Bowie points the finger in Hamburg this very evening.

Turn to the crossroads, and Hamburg...

A bit of a shorter set for Hamburg tonight, similar to last night's show in Rotterdam, but, with three songs being dropped. The most surprising of those omissions being Slip Away, (the other two being The Jean Genie and Try Some, Buy Some) and with no new songs added to the set list.

Anyway, it seems these changes did nothing to dampen the atmosphere of yet another great show at which the following 24 songs were performed:

Hamburg October 16th 2003

01 New Killer Star
02 Fame
03 Cactus
04 China
