Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

As part of worldwide celebrations of the life and music of David Bowie, cinemas around Europe will screen director D.A. Pennebaker's celebrated concert film for one night only. On July 3, 1973, Bowie took to the stage of the Hammersmith Odeon in London in the guise of his extrovert alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, with his band The Spiders From Mars. They performed an electrifying set list including All The Young Dudes, Changes, Let's Spend The Night Together, Oh! You Pretty Things and Space Oddity. During the performance, Bowie stunned the audience by announcing, "It's the last show we'll ever do", referring to the retirement of his colourful stage persona. Pennebaker's picture captures this iconic show in its entirety followed by an exclusive short film produced by Mojo magazine in which editor-in-chief Phil Alexander relives that memorable 1973 night in the company of The Spiders From Mars drummer Woody Woodmansey.
