Today, music fans across the world mourn the loss of a legend. Simply put, there aren't enough superlatives to describe David Bowie.

Sadly, Bowie never performed live here in Wyoming. However, he came to Denver seven times during his illustrious career. Here's a look back at each of those shows.

Feb. 15, 1976, at McNichols Sports Arena - Bowie was already a star when he first came to Denver on the Isolar Tour. Still in the process of shedding his iconic Ziggy Stardust character, the set list that night featured five songs from the recently released "Station to Station" album, including the title track and "Golden Years".

The show also included Bowie classics like "Changes," Suffragette City," "Rebel Rebel" and "Fame" along with a cover of the Velvet Underground's "I'm Waiting for the Man."

Aug. 12, 1987, at Mile High Stadium - The biggest tour of Bowie's career was the Glass Spider Tour, which sold out stadiums across the world. Hot on the heels of his album Never Let Me Down, Bowie performed a career spanning 29 song set in Denver.

Highlights of the show included "China Girl," "Fashion," "Scary Monsters," "Young Americans," and "Heroes," The evening ended with a encore featuring a cover of Iggy Pop and the Stooges "I Wanna Be Your Dog," followed by "Modern Love."

June 1 - 2, 1990 at McNichols Sports Arena - Bowie's Sound + Vision tour would mark his only two-night-stand in the Mile High City. The set list was determined, in part, by a fan poll conducted earlier that year.

In addition to favorites such as "Space Oddity," "Fame," "Fashion" and "Let's Dance," Bowie also mixed in several covers, including Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel," Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" and Van Morrison's "Gloria"

Oct. 16, 1995, at McNichols Sports Arena - Although Bowie's co-headlining trek with the Nine Inch Nails was dubbed "The Outside Tour," the Denver date took place indoors at Big Mac.

During the tour, Bowie joined the Nine Inch Nails during their encore, performing "Subterraneans," "Hallo Spaceboy" and a duet of "Hurt." Bowie's band then took the stage with "The Man Who Sold the World." His set would also include "Andy Warhol," "Diamond Dogs" and "Under Pressure."

Aug. 10, 2002, at Pepsi Center - The Heathen tour stood out for two reasons. It featured several selections from Bowie's latest release "Heathen" and was the first tour to feature the 1977 album Low, performed in its entirety.

In addition to all eleven songs from Low, Bowie mixed in three tracks from his iconic album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars," along with Hunky Dory's "Life on Mars" and Earthling's "I'm Afraid of Americans".

Jan. 19, 2004, at the Fillmore Auditorium - 2004's Reality Tour was Bowie's last, and also his most intimate tour in decades. Nearly 4,000 fans in attendance were treated to covers of The Beatles "A Hard Day's Night," Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes" and the T-Rex classic "Bang a Gong (Get It On)."

The night featured tracks ranging from 1970ss "The Man Who Sold the World" up to his 2003 album "Reality." Fittingly, the final song Bowie ever played live in Denver was "Ziggy Stardust." If you were there, it was a night you'll never forget.
