ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS

David Bowie’s final electrifying performance as Ziggy Stardust in 1973 at London’s Hammersmith Odeon Theater!

The feature length film captures the aura surrounding one of the most unusual stars of the contemporary music scene.

Framed by a smattering of behind-the-scenes footage, the bulk of the film concerns the actual concert, notable as the final time that Bowie would perform under the Ziggy Stardust persona, an announcement that, at the time, led many fans to mistakenly believe Bowie was retiring altogether.

Featuring numerous songs like “Ziggy Stardust,” “Moonage Daydream,” “Changes,” and “Space Oddity” from the albums Ziggy Stardust, Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane and other Bowie albums, as well as a cover of the Velvet Underground’s “White Light/White Heat.” Though a shortened version of the film was broadcast on television in 1974, the film did not receive a full theatrical release until 1983.

Bowie knew how to play his audience, and the documentary shows him as a fiercely concentrated performance artist on and offstage, who micromanaged everything from his makeup palette to the length of his kimono sleeves. - New York Daily News
