The David Bowie Isolar - 1976 Tour was a concert tour in support of the album Station To Station. It opened on 2 February 1976 at the Pacific National Exhibition Coliseummarker, Vancouvermarker, British Columbiamarker, and continued through North America and Europe, concluding at the Pavillon de Paris in Parismarker, Francemarker, on 18 May 1976. The tour is commonly referred to as Thin White Duke Tour, The Station to Station Tour, and The White Light Tour.

History

The performances began with a projected sequence of surrealist images, depicting a razor blade cutting into an eyeball, from the 1928 film Un Chien Andalou, by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali. The visual element of the performances incorporated banks of fluorescent white light set against black backdrops creating a stark spectacle on a stage largely devoid of props or other visual distractions.

The Public Auditoriummarker, Cleveland, Ohiomarker performance on 28 February 1976 was recorded by a concert-goer and released as the bootleg entitled "NeoExpressionism" on the TSP (The Swinging Pig) label. It would be digitally re-mastered in 2007 and the entire set released on 2 CD's. The only song not done at this performance is "Sister Midnight."

The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseummarker, Uniondale, New Yorkmarker, performance on 23 March 1976 was recorded by RCA Records with extracts broadcast by The King Biscuit Radio Network. Two songs from the performance were later included on the 1991 Rykodisc re-issue of the Station to Station album.

Tour band

In March 1976, the band became known as Raw Moon.
