The tour itself was met with high anticipation - not only was Bowie now sailing on the biggest wave of his career but he had just returned from his longest break in touring.
Like the first part of the tour, Bowie opened his shows with 'Look Back in Anger' and it's insistent chorus line:
"Waiting so long, I've been waiting, waiting so".
Completing 20 plus songs each night and spanning his entire career from 'Space Oddity' onwards, the Perth shows received ecstatic reviews.
Bowie fanzine Starzone mentions that Perth tickets initially sold for $19 each although some fans were willing to pay up to
$100 as indicated by advertisements in the press.
