Story taken from a YouTube video description when Bowie arrived at the Academy for a show during his Earthling tour in 1997.
'I just found this footage on an old VHS tape filmed by my mam and little sister at Bowie's show in Manchester 23-07-1997. Forgot I had this!
It shows some of Zachary Alford's entrance signing autographs. He is then followed by Bowie who approaches the crowd, but when a fan bumps the railings and startles him he walks away, disappointing fans who were waiting to see him. Then we see a brief clip of Bowie leaving the venue filmed by my mam after the show.'
