Ziggy Stardust - music played at gigs  

I have a question about the music played before and after Bowie left the stage at the Ziggy Stardust shows...

I know that an excerpt of Beethoven's 9th Symphony (more commonly known as the Clockwork Orange Theme) was played, but does anyone know which movement of the symphony was used?

Also, what other music was played in the auditorium before and after the shows?

please help!

To my understanding they used the version by Wendy (or Walter?) Carlos from A Clockwork Orange soundtrack.

And used again in 1990 !
I was pleasantly surprised I got to hear that before the shows :)

and this is where I remind you that Kraftwerk used the same music to open their 1981 shows.

I have been here for too long.

Computer World continued ten years later -tour new [re: Emil]  

This is where I say: 'damn, should have remembered that!'

Now that we are on the subject, was the same music used on the 1991 tour?

U2 opened with a little Beethoven's 9th to kick off their ZooTV concerts in the intro montage

Dylan has used classical music to open his shows. He's done so at least a decade or two.

Elvis used live classical music in the early 70's.
