The tour was unique in that Bowie dug deeper into his back catalogue, and we hear the band run through muscular versions of ‘Boys Keep Swinging‘, ‘Breaking Glass‘, ‘DJ‘, ‘Look Back In Anger‘ and ‘Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)‘.

The clip gives us a rare insight into the band’s preparations for the tour. At one point we hear Bowie say to band leader Peter Schwartz: “Peter, as we presume that the whole band is watching you for the end of that thing, can you make your movements much smaller?”
