Were you there the day David Bowie played the Harlow Playhouse?

BowieTODAY marks David Bowie’s 69th birthday. It also marks the release of his latest album Backstar.

But who can remember back to April 20th 1972, when the Thin White Duke played the Harlow Playhouse?

Bowie had released Hunky Dory in December 1971 but for many he was seen as a bit of one hit wonder, with Space Oddity a number five hit from 1969.

The single, Starman had been released but even that, in February, wasn’t creating a lot of interest.

A few months later, Ziggy Stardust was released, there was a performance of Starman on Top of the Pops and the rest, as they say, is, history…

So, were you there at the Playhouse?
