And then he walked along the edge of the Circle

This is the place where we will post your stories about the Green's Playhouse, The Glasgow Apollo and Satelitte City (The Wee Apollo). As it develops we will break the stories up into sections such as Myths, Gigs I missed, Meeting the Bands, Where are they now etc. No story too trivial and we will only edit out bad language!

New Forum structure on Apollomemories soon.

Comments on David Bowie [reply]
 
Saw him twice in 71 (was it?) -- one time supported by Stealers Wheel, another by "Stumble".

Both shows were pretty similar and it was just post (or pre?) Alladin Sane; certainly at the very UK height of the Ziggy mania.

January 1973
An afternoon at the Kelvin Hall Carnival & then off to see Bowie being Ziggy at Green's Playhouse.
Musical star of the night had to be Mick Ronson. Bowie's voice was a bit thin & nasal. Who cared,however, he was pretty enough to make the lassies scream and the band rocked enough to impress the lads. The Playhouse was heaving and the atmosphere was manic. Saw Bowie several times after that however that night was just a bit special.

I saw the early show and it was really pretty quiet.  The later show seems to have been adifferent matter.  However DB blew everyone away.  None of the audience had quite seen anything like it.  Lots of strobe lighting and almost everyrthing at breakneck speed. [reply]
 
Saw this one after being at The January show and Bowie mania had hit big time in between.  Nothing could really have prepared anyone for this.  The balcony was jumping up and down like something at a funfair and the show was something else.  For sheer excitement the best one ever! [reply]
