David Bowie - Isolar II Tour 1978 CD


David Bowie's stint in West Berlin during the latter half of the 1970s is as legendary as the music he released while there. Enamoured with the burgeoning artistic scene in the city, by '78 Bowie had brought out Low and Heroes, while also having served as producer and de facto musical director for Iggy Pop The emergence of Krautrock had had a profound effect on Bowie, leading him to take a more abstract and experimental approach to his craft. The result was ultimately successful, with Low and Heroes being hailed as two of his greatest albums. Having by now kicked the drug habit that had plagued him during the years predating his move east, Bowie embarked on the mammoth Isolar II Tour, playing 78 shows across four continents over the course of the year. With a rejuvenated Bowie at the helm, these concerts were considered some of the best he had ever performed. The tour concluded at Japan's NHK Hall on 12th December, which was the subject of a live broadcast transmitted across many parts of the world. Featuring an eclectic mix of cuts from Heroes, Low, Station To Station and Ziggy Stardust, this dynamic show is now available on this CD for all fans to finally enjoy.
