A superb recording from a fine show. 'If we're going to film a DVD anywhere, this is the place to do it. I know it, you know it and they (the film crew) know it!'

That's how David Bowie explained the presence of cameras at the first of two shows at the Point Depot in Dublin last night.

DB does his best to ignore a bloke filming a Mekon on the first night of Dublin.

We're today's scrambled creatures, locked in tomorrow's Dublin feature...

"If we're going to film a DVD anywhere, this is the place to do it. I know it, you know it and they (the film crew) know it!" That's how David Bowie explained the presence of cameras at the first of two shows at the Point Depot in Dublin last night.

And the decision to film these shows was a good one. This was one of the most emotionally-charged audiences I have ever had the privilege to be a part of... and it made for some very touching moments. The ovation at the end of Life On Mars? being one such moment... David was visibly moved by the overwhelming appreciation from this great crowd.

 

Another emotional moment... David with 12-string performing Five Years.

The fact that David had bothered to learn a few words of Gaeilge would have probably won over the crowd, especially considering the significance of the first words he used, which raised a few eyebrows and had many locals wondering if they were hearing things! But, in the event, it made no difference, this crowd was won over from the moment the giant video screens flickered into life with the cartoon Bowie and band grinding out that jam that I really must find out the name of.

Local boy Gerry Leonard was another clearly touched by the response of the crowd to his introduction by David, and it was lovely to see him grinning throughout, a grin that got wider every time David uttered a word in Gaeilge.
