Long before he mesmerised the nation with Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie was working his way around the county’s clubs and pubs.
It was one of these early tours which saw David Bowie and the Buzz arrive at the Maids Head in King's Lynn on November 27, 1966.

Clearly a keen fan of the county, during his early days Bowie also included visits to Cromer, Great Yarmouth and Thetford (where he performed twice) on his tour.
The starman's band was made up of John Hutchinson on guitar, Derek Fearnley on bass, John Eager on drums and Derrick Boyes on keyboards.
While no set list is known, early tracks such as The London Boys, Gospel According to Tony Day and You're Holding Me Down were recorded with the Buzz (who were uncredited) and likely featured.
The gig came shortly before Bowie would give what is thought to be the first ever live performance of Velvet Underground classic I'm Waiting For The Man at the Severn Club in Shrewsbury.
