Believe it or not, the legendary David Bowie graced Poughkeepsie’s presence in 2003 during a warmup show for his A Reality Tour, performing The Chance Theater. You can read excerpts and a setlist from David Bowie’s official website below and listen to the hour and a half set as part of our second Classic Concerts feature!

Can’t we give ourselves one more Chance…

Incredibly, it was five long years ago today that David Bowie played a warm up show for his A Reality Tour with an intimate performance for BowieNetters at The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Sadly, it was a show I was personally unable to attend (a fact DB cheekily made reference to during the show) but obviously an army of BowieNetters from around the globe did make it to the show.

I’ll leave you with the eighteen song setlist from the night, which, as impressive as it was at the time, pales when compared to some of the shows on A Reality Tour a few months later. The thirty three song show in Berlin on November 3rd being a great example of that.
