Another review of the Bowie celebration:

My son reminded me that he and my daughter attended a local Bowie concert in the 90’s where Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails opened for him. David came on stage and performed “Scary Monsters” with them!

Lucky they saw him. I'm jealous ;)

The only place I ever saw him in the flesh, was the Freddie Tribute Concert.

No I will have flashbacks now to him doing the Lord's Prayer.

Probably won't ever be so out of place as Elizabeth Taylor turning up on stage.

I was shocked he did that. Actually it was one of the most shocking things I've ever seen a rocker do up to thst point. Yes, I was that naive at that time.

I guess they both had good intentions.
I'm surprised the tribute was the first time you saw Bowie live. What did you think about All The Young Dudes performance?

Retrospectively, I'm not surprised.

Back then, I wasn't particulaly into the directions Bowie had gone since the Trident years. I've only come to appreciate the later stuff in recent years. Glass Spider tour? What a waste of a world class guitarist.

The performances, all of them that Bowie featured on at the Freddie Tribute Concert were great. I must also admit his Glastonbury gig, was a marvel, but that's probably because he went back to his roots around then, a lot more than previously.

I thought he wrote Heroes as a tribute to Freddie at the time, man those lyrics and the way he sang it blew me away.
This was before I dug deeper in his back catalogue which happened a year or two later.
Bowie forever changed music.
