David Bowie’s Isolar II 1978 World Tour, also known as The Low / Heroes World Tour or The Stage Tour, opened forty years ago today, on the 29th of March 1978 at the San Diego Sports Arena.

The tour continued through North America, Europe and Australia before reaching a conclusion at the NHK Hall in Tokyo, on the 12th of December 1978. Eighty dates were played, with a total attendance of almost 1.2 million people.

No known footage, or even a decent quality audio, exists from the first show of the tour in San Diego. Therefore, I’m putting out this new sync instead.

I’m working towards putting out more live ‘78 material this year, and hopefully a long-form video from / about the tour.

So please keep your electric eye on me babe!

I don’t own the rights, and I’m not making any money out of this etc.
