Bowie bragging is a subtle art so let me first lay my cards on the table. I did not go to the Hammersmith Odeon ‘farewell’ concert, though it took place less than a mile from my house. No regrets about missing that epic display of showboating, either — sacking the band on stage was poor form whichever way you slice it.
