Full Show Friday: David Bowie – Rockpalast 1996

We’ve been enjoying David Bowie’s new album and would’ve loved for The Thin White Duke to tour behind The Next Day, but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Bowie isn’t just an outstanding studio artist, he’s also an underrated live performance. Our proof can be found in today’s Full Show Friday selection – David Bowie’s performance at the Loreley Festival in Loreley, Germany from June 22, 1996.

Bowie was backed by the talented quartet of Reeves Gabrels (guitar), Mike Garson (keyboards), Gail Ann Dorsey (bass, vocals) and Zack Alford (drums) at Loreley. The ensemble takes us on a tour of Bowie’s best material over the course of 22 songs. Some of tunes are played in similar fashion to the studio recordings, while other songs are deliciously reworked. Highlights include Diamond Dogs, The Man Who Sold The World, Under Pressure, The Heart’s Filthy Lesson and Heroes as well as a cover of White Light/White Heat (Velvet Underground). Plus, we get to hear Bowie perform songs he wrote for other artists such as Lust For Life (Iggy Pop) and All The Young Dudes (Mott The Hoople).

Live at Rockpalast Festival, Loreley, Germany 22nd June 1996.
