David Bowie's Dance party
1 November 2005 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

A good show that I remember seeing in the 80's. The film is an excellent way to see the concert tour again, or for the first time. The tour featured guest Peter Frampton who was excellent at sharing the guitar time with long time Bowie band member Carlos Alomar. As with each David Bowie album over the years, fans understand that David led the way at evolving his "art". Each album in the Bowie collection has a progressive shift in the music, Bowie is all about artistic expression. This film is his "artistic statement" for the late 80's period. I view this concert tour show as his dance party show. The dancers that he toured with were all practiced in modern dance, every step, every move on cue and in time. The dance as, performance art is meant to supplement the music and entertain the audience. The play-list of songs is a statement for the time, not a rehash of "Ziggy Plays Guitar". David has fun and wants the audience to enjoy themselves as they get lost in familiar tunes. Hopefully we will see a re-release of the Glass Spider on DVD in the near future, If you are a David Bowie fan, this show is a lot of fun to watch. It is like most rock performance films, out there for fans. I honesty have thrown this film in the tape player at least 3 times a year for as long as I have owned it. It remains a standard in my rock show collection .... Enjoy!
