David Bowie onstage in Manchester tonight. Picture by Total Blam Blam
It was looking very much like rain was going to stop play during the first day of The Move Festival at Lancashire County Cricket Club ground in Manchester today. But the music triumphed and we all had a jolly wonderful time. I'm just back from Manchester, and frankly, after only two hours sleep the night before...I'm knackered. So I'll post a few pix and the setlist for tonight, and I'll be back with more tomorrow.
Here are the songs from David's stunning performance at day one of The Move Festival:
Life On Mars?
Ashes To Ashes
I Would Be Your Slave
I?ve Been Waiting For You
I?m Afraid of Americans
5.15 The Angels Have Gone
Heathen (The Rays)
Everyone Says Hi
DB, Mark and birthday boy Lard today. Picture by Total Blam Blam.
Earlier in the day, David stopped by Radio 1's Mark 'n Lard show for a quick chat and to play a few records in celebration of Lard's birthday...a bit! It was all frightfully funny, and I can't wait to hear a tape of what was broadcast.
I'll leave you with a final backstage shot at Move of David with, (from left to right) Pinky and Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy, and Brett Anderson of Suede, all of whom enjoyed brilliant performances of their own. More of which later.
So much talent in one small room. Picture by Total Blam Blam.
