Inside The Baggot!

In response to yesterday posting about the Ryanair gigs In London, I commented that I had what I believe too be the only photos of David Bowie inside the Baggot Inn!!

It’s exactly 29 years this month since he played support to The Blue Angels (you can clearly see the Blue Angels backdrop in the background!)

Taken on a disposable camera, these photos have never been published in the last 29 years!!!! You guys are the first too see them.

Utterly amazing gig! With an audience of who’s who, the walls were dripping with condensation from the crowd, a mixture of Tin Machine material with a covers from The Pixies (Debaser was brilliant) and Roxy Music.

Hopefully if we get to next year I’ll send a few more for the 30th anniversary.

In fairness.

Thanks Andy!
