Stage [Virgin]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Stage was David Bowie's second live double album, documenting his supporting tour for Heroes. Supported by a band that featured guitarists Adrian Belew and Carlos Alomar, Bowie doesn't recast his earlier work in a new light -- the songs from Ziggy Stardust essentially remain the same, as do the selections from Station to Station -- but they are infused with a new avant-garde spirit that comes to the forefront during the songs from Low and Heroes.
