Photography: Bowie’s ‘Station to Station’ tour

The Station to Station Tour began in Feb. 1976 in support of the album of the same name, and lasted until May of the same year. Bowie had been living on ‘cocaine, peppers and milk’  for the making of the album but seemed a bit more fit, and less insane, for the tour. All black and white clothes and white neon light stage design, Bowie said  “I wanted to go back to a kind of German Expressionist movement look … and the lighting of, say, Fritz Lang or Pabst. A black-and-white movies look, but with an intensity that was sort of aggressive. I think for me, personally, theatrically, that was the most successful tour I’ve ever done.”
