Not only is it the last show of the tour...
OK, as I said in yesterday's news and on the message boards, the original Meet & Greet competition that I proposed earlier in the week (09/19/02 NEWS: BOWIE RETURNS TO HAMMERSMITH FOR LONDON SHOW) hasn't proved very popular, and will not now go ahead. I'm going to keep this new one nice and simple so that nobody has to purchase anything, and any BowieNetter can enter. You are competing for two pairs of tickets to see David in concert, and two pairs of Meet & Greet places for David Bowie's Hammersmith show on October 2nd.
I'm going to revert to the tried and tested answer a simple question technique... and here it is:
David Bowie is set to play the Hammersmith Carling Apollo on Wednesday October 2nd. This is the same venue that he retired Ziggy at back in July 1973, when the venue was known simply as the Hammersmith Odeon. The concert was captured for posterity by legendary film maker D.A. Pennebaker, and was recently re-issued for theatrical release.
But, the released version of the film is incomplete, due to the fact that a guest artist who performed with Ziggy and The Spiders on the night, is allegedly unhappy about his appearance in the film, particularly the width of his flares! This chap was in a famous band in the Sixties, whose songs David has released versions of in the past. All I need to know from you is the title of one of those songs that David has released? Yep, it's that easy!
All the usual rules apply but here they are yet again, just in case:
As ever, please be sure to provide proof of a BowieNet account...either e-mail your entry from your BowieNet account, or supply your BowieNet user name, if you mail from a non BowieNet account.
If possible please provide a telephone number in case we need to contact you urgently.
No duplicate entries please... duplicate entries will only be accepted if you are worried that a previous e-mail wasn't sent properly.
Only enter if you can DEFINITELY attend the show.
Send your answer to me at TotalBlamBlam@DavidBowie.com with a subject line of: I want to meet David on October 2nd.
The contest will end at midnight UK time on Wednesday night, and the winners will be notified on Thursday morning, after we have checked the validity of their BowieNet account. Please keep an eye on BowieNet for the winners names in case there are e-mail problems. Good luck to each and every one of you.
