The concert at Athletic Park was part of the Serious Moonlight tour which Uncle Google tells me was 24th November 1983
I went to that Stages concert in Chch shown in the photo. Living in Wellington at the time but flew down just for it. The night was quite foggy. The stage was surrounded by these vertical tube lights, that flashed so it looked like they were in a cage. When he played Station to Station, the echo came back from the New Brighton area. Made that song very eerie. I remember my ears rang for a long time afterwards so the noise must have kept a lot of local residents up.
I also saw his tour at Athletic Park 5 years later - not the Glass Spider one. A lot better stage performance but not as much soul there.
