Hi I was at the gig and I'm pretty sure it was the 20th of April 72. Starman was released just a few days later I believe. It was my first ever gig, my sister Gina took me and we were 4th row. There was definitely a support act, although I can't recall their name. As I had only heard Hunky Dory and Space Oddity I was expecting a bloke with long hair to basically play guitar sitting on a stool. What actually happened I will never forget, it went extremely dark and I saw five figures walk on stage, including pianist Matthew Fisher. One of which walked to the centre mic, at the same time a spot light shone on his head (hair definitely not long, or 'mousey') and he announced 'Good evening Harlow, I'm David Bowie, these are the Spiders from Mars and this is our music'. The noise was extremely loud my 14 year old ears and I have to admit I did stand at the back for a while! I later got use to loud gigs I'm pleased to say and say I saw him again at the Rainbow in August 72. Thanks sis for a truly memorable gig and thanks David for the music. Chris
