When

Note: The following dates and venues are mostly, but not 100% accurate. If the name of the venue or city is spelt incorrectly, or the date is not correct, and you have incontrovertible proof (I seem to recall is not sufficient), then please email me with the corrected info.

First Leg (Diamond Dogs)

Note: The early shows are dogged by problems - amongst other things David has laryngitis - but by the time the tour crosses the border into New York, things have settled down to an average of one foul-up a night.

Second Leg (Philly Dogs)

In September, the Diamond Dogs tour returns to the road, but the extravagant trappings (which almost drove Bowie bankrupt) are only present for the first month.

Often this leg is referred to as the Philly Dogs tour, since Bowie was moving into his Young Americans mode.
