Very interesting program about the then current tour from the Tubes and David Bowie. The tubes had an insane live show, that as you’ll see, was not without accidents and Bowie is at the prime of his coolness.
The show was produced and broadcast during the 1978 Isolar II World Tour, and produced by Bowie’s old mate Alan Yentob. It features an interview that covers Bowie’s changing musical perspective, his feelings about the tour and the Just A Gigolo movie. Also featured are live tracks and Bowie and Brian Eno’s instrumental from the “Heroes” album, Neuköln, set to a visual collage of contemporary Germany.
Excerpts from the interview have been used in the BBC documentaries, Five Years and The Last Five Years, and in the Bowie Is exhibition.
Alan Yentob, who of course made the classic 1975 Bowie documentary “Cracked Actor” interviews Bowie, and produced the show.
