Finally got around to listening to this.

Now Robyn has done Bowie songs as encores or as part of medleys over the years, but this was one of the bigger ones (though Breaking Glass seems to be a typo).

The audience go absolutely wild for this one - as you'll notice there's a couple of non Bowie numbers in there. Seeds might be low but it's a Sunday evening so I expect they'll pick up again (I can't easily re-seed as I've archived it off). NB on the gig on the 16th, Robyn mentioned Bowie playing at the Roseland, and joked about popping to see a bit of that in the interval in his show.

It's excellent stereo quality - and played light heartedly at times but nice guitar sound, and good singing.

PS for those who download torrent 'highlights' only (me too - I've been known to do this), the Gene Hackman song is very good :)

Coincidentally a Robyn show from 2018 has just been added to dime tonight, and All the Young Dudes is an encore. The vocals are nothing to write home about on it, but my the guitars are clear for an audience recording!!!

Pretty good really, despite the vocals (and some are deliberately bad as it's an encore, it seems)  :)
