Bowie's Embarrassing Elvis Gig
The STAR MAN rocker jetted in to New York to see Elvis perform at Madison SQUARE GARDEN direct from a show in London in 1972 - but he arrived 10 minutes into a 45-minute appearance.
He says, "I had the humiliating experience of walking down the centre aisle to my very good RCA-provided seat while Elvis performed Proud Mary.
"I was in full ZIGGY (STARDUST) regalia - brilliant red hair and KABUKI platform shoes.
"Elvis was fantastically fit-looking, and his voice was in great shape. I was a little brought down as his show lasted only about 45 minutes."29/09/2003 02:29
