1987 Glass Spider Tour (AUS/NZ)

Sydney (November 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 13 & 14)

In Sydney, ticket demand sustained an incredible 8 nights at the Entertainment Centre - Bowie's longest stay at any one venue on any one concert tour - a record he has not equalled or broken since.

Sydney also included a duet with guest guitarist Charlie Sexton. Bowie appeared visibly invigorated at the chance to bring a tougher guitar sound to the show and it was also the first time in many moons that he had picked up an electric guitar on stage.
