My First Gig

50 years ago today, I went to my very first gig – David Bowie at the Empire Theatre, Edinburgh. What a night.

There’s a  very bad YouTube sound recording of it below, but I’ve made a Spotify playlist of the songs played here.

Hang On to Yourself/Ziggy Stardust/Watch That Man/Quicksand/Life on Mars/Memory of a Free Festival/The Prettiest Star/Moonage Daydream/Changes/Space Oddity/The Jean Genie/Time/The Width of a Circle/Let’s Spend the Night Together/Drive-In Saturday/Panic in Detroit/Suffragette City/Cracked Actor/Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide

And here’s a clip from the end of ‘Let’s Spend The Night Together,’ that really sticks in my mind:
