After he had played for 150,000 people at the US Festival and 2 sellout concerts in the Forum, LA's hunger for Bowie was still not satisfied. So this concert was added to the tour schedule, in the gigantic Anaheim Stadium with a seating capacity of 73,000. 70, 089 tickets were sold; the unsold tickets were for seats with rather a poor view - so it was virtually sold out.
Overall the sound is quite listenable but the tape plays too slow. There are occasional handling noises. Let's Dance and Space Oddity are included in the show but omitted from the cover art. The announcement and the beginning of Look Back In Anger are missing. During China Girl, Bowie sings 'oh baby, just you shut your mouth' high-pitched and with a Chinese accent. Only the start of Fame is on the recording and the end of Modern Love.
