Diamond Dogs rule, OK...
For the 99th show of his A Reality Tour at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ, last night, David decided it was time for another new song to the setlist from the depths of his 40-year-old library.
Just over a week before the release of the 30th anniversary edition of Diamond Dogs, DB resurrected the title track for the first of the two Borgata shows.
BowieNetter nancyh was at the show, that's another of her superb shots above. She also posted a brief report on the
High points - the entire fucking show.
DIAMOND DOGS!!! QUEEN BITCH!!! Station to Station, Bewlay Brothers, and David in tiptop form telling stories about Divas and Jessica Simpson and Britney and Beyonce and Maria Calais, Aretha Franklin, Ertha Kitt... Joan Crawford, and Gail. Some are, some aren't and so on...
There was lots of BowieLove going on in the front row. Jim (Floidoip) made it to the show, and right up front, and David dedicated Heathen to him!
David seemed very pleased with Diamond Dogs - it sounded absolutely amazing, and a roaring crowd response. Station to Station was simply flawless, classic, complete with throwing darts in lovers eyes... Bewlay Brothers - Big grin when he finished and he said "I think we'll keep that in the set, yeah?"
Yeah! FIVE MORE SHOWS this week!
Thanx Nancy. Sounds like a very special show. And well done to Floidoip for getting a dedication. Great stuff. As Nancy says, she will be at the remaining US shows, so expect more enthusiastic reports during the course of next week.
