The concert is a fine one, even though Bowie was extremely tired that night and did not show his full dancing programme.  A minor error at the outset of White Light White Heat (drums and brass out of synch) but Tony Thompson offers a swift and effective remedy by holding up his drumming for a split second.  The audience are thrilled and get very excited, especially when Bowie introduces the band.  'Drums and backing vocals, Tony Thompson'.


During Young Americans, Bowie sings Washington with great emphasis, which naturally excites the Washington crowd.  When Bowie returns for Modern Love, he says something I can't make out, 'OK, we've got some....we've got a couple of you dancing on this one!'.

This was the last show during this tour to commence with The Jean Genie/Star Intro.
