This boot takes its name from a comment I read about the show from Mike C of Anaheim, CA USA.

I paid a whopping $160 for my "fourth row" center seat.   What a surprise it was for me and one of my best buddies, Rich, when we discovered the center stage cut into the audience three rows worth.  Yes, sports fans, we had first row center for Bowie in LA.  Expecting the same show as the night before, I was blown away when I heard the opening to Look Back In Anger.  That was just the beginning of a night full of surprises.  One of the highlights of the show was during the end of Breaking Glass, when the beat accompanied the lyrics, "I'll Never Touch You" and a young lady lifted her dress and danced to the rythym.  This caught Mr. Jones' attention.  He made eye contact with her, moved his hands in the shape of a woman, and blew her a kiss.  It was one of those moments when time seemed to stop.   Bowie looked great.  The band was magnificent.  Not my favorite album, but the tour kicked ass.

Much hysterical screaimng, particularly at the begunning of Cracked Actor.   When, after having introduced the band, Bowie says, 'I, of course, am Michael Jackson' there is a mixture of thrill and surprise from the audience.  Bowie continues, 'Who are you? Who are you?  This is a song that I did...um...5 years ago...7 years ago...from the Young Americans album'.  The recollection of time is not your greatest attribute, is it, David?
