Went to see Woody and Tony Visconti in York last year perform this album with Glenn Gregory of Heaven 17. Excellent

Agreed Micky Hoss.... I have a dozen Bowie albums, all brilliant, but TMWSTW with Width of a Circle is probably the most brilliant collection of tracks he ever put together
Have a gander at YouTube and listen to Mick Ronson performing WOAC

Amazing guitar work - it really was the 'perfect storm' with Bowie's musical genius & song-writing, plus three talented musicians Trever Bolder, Woody Woodmansey & Mick Ronson
My only regret was not seeing them play live at DeMont

I saw Ian Hunter's Overnight Angels at the DeMont and there was a rumour that Ronno was going to guest on a few MTH songs but this never materialised. Earl Slick played lead on that tour.

I didn't know Earl Slick until hearing the fantastic guitar on DAVID LIVE. That's one of my top-10 albums of all time, and Earl Slick's guitar is right up there, along with Bowie's coolness :cool:

That was the only gig I went to at the DeMont that had the top tier shut, and I went to lots. I wasn't looking forward to it much and went under sufferance but it was magnificent, they played the majority of the OA songs as the new album hadn't been out long but they did at least 45 minutes of MTH greatest tunes, top gig.

why did the close the balcony........ surely not because they were only expecting a small crowd.
That is the exact reason Wombat. The pre ticket sales were poor at the majority of the venues for this tour. The standing area was pretty packed by the time Knox and The Vibrators departed the scene.

I purchased balcony seats on the rare occasion I took a date.....and i looked down enviously at the lads rocking out in front of the stage

99% of the time, a DeMont gig was with my mates on the floor, and you could move around to best position to get a good look at your favourite band member (bass, guitar, keyboards or lead singer). I was 8 - 10 feet away from Phil Lynott when Thin Lizzy played.... and I'll neber forget that

I only saw 3 gigs from the Balcony in all of those years, Be Bop Deluxe, Thin Lizzy and AC/DC with Bon.

Micky, I didn't see AC/DC at DeMont
I got into their music right at the beginning (mid-70's), and remember my mate said they weren't playing in Leicester, so we travelled all the way down to Coventry on a motor-bike (I think they call that 'double jeopardy!!) and they were playing at a Bailey's type night club. Sa:rolleyes:w Bon Scott up close & personal from a few feet away - he was an amazing front-man c/w Angus in full schoolboy outfit 'duck-walking' across the stage.
We had a great night but got back to Melton cold & wet after a couple of hours up & down the M69 on a Honda CB 360, but it was worth it as that was only gig they were playing in the Midlands.... then I found out a couple of days later, AC/DC were playing De Mont!!!
I could have throttled my mate
