This concert was to be held in St Paul but was moved to the Horizon for reasons unknown .  The introduction announces, 'Ladies and gentlemen.  On stage for the final performance in Chicago of the Serious Moonlight tour, David Bowie and his band'.  This is a splendid recording with a wildly enthusiastic audience who go on shouting during the songs, e.g. during Let's Dance when a rose is thrown onto the stage and Bowie turns it into a fiddle!

During the band intro Bowie mutters something incomprehensible as he introduces Earl Slick.  He then introduces Tony Thompson as conversational programming and asks 'will you play drums for us tonight, Tony?'.  At the beginning of The Jean Genie, Bowie waits quite a while before starts singing, in order to let the band give a sample of their skills, and the audience clap along with fervour.
