We were so turned on, In the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion...
David Bowie entered into the spirit of things last night when he donned a Stetson for his show at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, Texas. BowieNet members can view more eveidence of this celebration of local costume, and see a whole lot of other pictures from the show, via the lens of Erik, in VT now.
Michael D. Clark of the Houston Chronicle was present at the show and here's an excerpt from his review:
It turns out the best character David Bowie ever played is David Bowie. The performer who has gallivanted as both Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke came to the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Thursday as himself. It was his best incarnation yet.
Even better than seeing Bowie play one persona for an entire show was watching him slip in and out of characters like a master of the one-man show. He was a nasal spaceman on an encore and a swaggering soul man for Under Pressure. During China Girl, he flirted and shushed the crowd in a way that probably made many listeners breathe harder. (Even I can admit that the guy has sex appeal.)
