Teenage Wildlife

Station To Station World Tour

February - May 1976

Thanks to Starling for the tour dates and information. Thanks also to Philip Obbard for providing the initial information. Sources include Moonage Daydream by Dave Thompson.

For the first time since 1972, David tours with a small, compact unit - he's joined by just five musicians. Plans to augment the band with two backing vocalists, Ava Cherry and Claudia Lennear, are dropped at the last minute.

"I do feel like I'm starting over again. I think there's a certain maturity now", he tells Melody Maker's Robert Hilburn. Gone are the vast props and the onstage overkill, along with the entourage of hairdressers, dress designers and bodyguards. Clad in white shirt, black trousers and waistcoat, the Thin White Duke seems caught up in some massive Man Ray photomontage, starkly illuminated by great banks of white bulbs. "It doesn't look like a theatrical presentation", he tells Melody Maker's Chris Charlesworth, "but it certainly is".

Christmas, 1975 David spends Christmas at Keith Richards Jamaican home rehearsing the band for the 1976 world tour. David's manager, Michael Lippman was fired when David arrived in Jamaica to find that no arrangements had been made.
