EVENT INFORMATION

  • Time: 8 pm

Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

 

“Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly”


Commonly accepted as one of the greatest and most influential rock gigs of the 20th century, David Bowie leads a packed house through a selection of hits, including Space Oddity, Moonage Daydream, Oh You Pretty Things and the Ziggy Stardust title track.

D.A. Pennebaker’s celebrated documentary and concert movie features David Bowie at the height of his musical powers. He takes to the stage as Ziggy Stardust, iconic leader of the Spiders from Mars. It had been a long climb to the top but by July 1973 at the Hammersmith Odeon, Bowie had the world at his feet. It was, therefore, more of a surprise that he would announce mid-show that Ziggy was retiring from the music industry for good. Of Course, David Bowie would return, but in other guises and never again as the “Leper Messiah”.
