At one point, after exactly one hour of live set, Bowie left the stage. Everybody thought that he would return for the encores, but it was not the case: Bowie had already left to come back to his hotel!
Bowie's management never wanted to give any explanation about this, since the singer was contracted to play 100 minutes. But a few speculations can be done: first of all, the audience was far below Bowie's normal standards: 4,000 people attending a show in a stadium that can hold more than 60,000! Second, the fight with the photographs, who were allowed to take shots during the first song only (instaed of two, as usually happens). As a protest, the photographs threw their photo passes on the stage while leaving at the end of the opening track.
