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.
You all know Susans for her hardcore worship of our man, and tonight her loyalty was rewarded with the dedication of Suffragette City to her and Gail Ann. Well done girl, you deserve it... and thanx for the nightly set list confirmations.
Anyway, as I say, it was another one of those special shows tonight, which started not with NKS (for the first time so far) but with The Jean Genie, and it ended with the song that graced the flip-side of this very same 1972 45, Ziggy Stardust.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the drummer of The Pretty Things... Twink!!
Actually it's David Bowie leading the crowd in a Slip Away sing-a-long at the
Festhalle-Masse in Frankfurt earlier this evening. Photograph by Miriam Geelhoed.
It's good to see the return of Slip Away after its scary absence from the last show. Tonight's return was celebrated by David pointing his microphone in the direction of the very loud and appreciative sing-a-long audience. (See above)
Many thanx to BowieNetter Mirearth (aka Miriam Geelhoed) for the wonderful shots on this page... great stuff girl, keep 'em coming!
