David Bowie’s 'Suffragette City’ was the last song Michael Hutchence ever performed live.
Hutchence was spending his final week in Los Angeles before heading out on his fateful trip to Australia.
Michael was in LA recording with producer Danny Saber. Those sessions became Michael’s self-titled solo album, released in 1999.
Saber had an all-star at the legendary Viper Room and Hutchence tagged along for the show. This was just days before he left for Sydney. It would turn out to be Michael’s last ever live performance and the song was Bowie's 'Suffragette City’. Unfortunately, I can't find a recording of this once-off performance.
The date was November 16, 1997. Michael Hutchence died in Sydney on November 22, 1997, just six days later.
