David Bowie At Roseland, June 19, 2000 Setlist

David Bowie’s Legendary concert At Roseland

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Robert Nevin wrote about this concert a couple of years ago and it remains for me a masterpiece of amazing proportions. And the proof that was as good as I remember must be this: how many Bowie shows open with “Wild is the Wind”? he might as well have had a huge sign reading “Strap Yourself In It’s going To Be A Bumpy Ride”. In a good way, needless to add.

So with a live show further away than ever, here is the setlist from 13 years in the past.

Wild Is the Wind – The Station To Station track, which would be a standout by anyone, at that album it was just another blown to smithreens ballad – A+

China Girl – To be honest, I prefer Iggy’s version – B+

Changes –  The first sign of supergreatness – A+

Stay – Another perfect ballad, though this time an original, and also from S2S. Any questions? – A

Life on Mars? – And the second off Hunky Dory!! – A

Absolute Beginners – Crap song – C-

Ashes to Ashes – Answer to “Space Oddyssy” and a very effective one – A-

The Jean Genie – Smashing trib to Genet – A

Cracked Actor – Second off Aladin Sane.  Now I want you to imagine that I was in THE FRONT ROW – A

Little Wonder – Debatably his last flat out masterpiece, better than anything on the newbie – A-

This Is Not America – Yeah, low point of the evening – D+

Fame – Co-written with John Lennon – A

All the Young Dudes – Glam as all get out – A

The Man Who Sold the World – Yes, but Kurt changed it into a statement  for a generation – A

Station to Station – The THIRD off the great album. By now I’m like Mary Magpie at a fall Out Boy concert – A+

Starman – “Let the children boogie…” – A+

Hallo Spaceboy – Ho Hum  – C-

Under Pressure At first I thought it was “cat People” whatever, but no it was more than that – A-

Encore:
I Dig Everything -OK, dso we don’t need too much of this encore, but still he has earned the right to push the product – C

The London Boys – Fails to convince even though he is one – C-

“Heroes” – The single most overrated song in his career – B

Let’s Dance – Great intro – B

I’m Afraid of Americans – Mediocre art Bowie – C
