Today marks the 30th anniversary of one of the best gigs ever, which was of course Mr David Bowie in Dublin’s Baggot Inn. So as promised here (above) are a few more unpublished photos from that gig…
Name that other geezer (pic 2), anyone?
Update: see comments.
Last year: My Heart’s In The Basement
In case you mizzed it.

A new film recalling David Bowie’s first-ever US publicity tour in 1971, which helped birth Ziggy Stardust.
Via Consequence of Sound:
Bowie (played by Johnny Flynn) slowly undergoes a transformation into otherworldly alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Guiding him on this path is his Mercury Records press person Rob Oberman (Marc Maron), one of the few label employees to really believe in his music and potential. Bowie’s first wife Angie (Jena Malone) also offers him uplifting pep talks..
…Directed by British filmmaker Gabriel Range using a script from Christopher Bell, Stardust hasn’t received approval from Bowie’s family, and thus won’t feature any of the legend’s original music. The movie hits theaters and VOD on November 25.

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.
Yesterday: The Harlesden Shuffle
