Review by Warthur
4 stars The famed Serious Moonlight tour was in support of the Let's Dance album, and given the abrupt pivot Bowie had made from cutting edge art rock to crowd-pleasing pop, you might expect it to be a blandly commercial affair. As it stands, the setlist incorporates a surprising amount of late-1970s art rock material from Station to Station and Berlin eras whilst packaging everything in a slick, energetic performance that makes all the material sound like it belongs together. If you suspected that Let's Dance was merely a gateway drug to weirder stretches of Bowie's discography, this might be evidence in support of that.

This edition was originally part of the Loving the Alien boxed set, but has now also had a separate release, making it a significantly more tempting prospect for anyone who passed on that box, either because it was outside their budget or because the prospect of a collection including Never Let Me Down was unpalatable.
