1980 Floor Show

The 1980 Floor Show was conceived by Tony DeFries and Bowie as a vehicle to launch his career in America. It was recorded as a special for the US TV show Midnight Special, and filmed at London’s Marquee Club (where Bowie had performed frequently in the ’60s) between 18 – 20 October 1973 before an invited media and fan-club audience. It was aired on NBC in the US on 16 November 1973.
