David Bowie: City Hall, Newcastle

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 24 June 1978

EVERYBODY I spoke to was complaining. A front row of seats had been sold then removed to fit the stage extension in. The roadies thought they had been told to leave the building during the set. It seemed that professional photographers would have to shoot in pairs for the duration of 3 numbers each, then leave. The tour progamme/newspaper was a quid a throw. And where the hell were my tickets? Aggro, misunderstandings, rip-offs. It felt very bad.
