We’re delighted to bring you the official UK poster for Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars: The Motion Picture. David Bowie’s iconic alter ego is coming to Picturehouses across the land on Tuesday 7 March, as part of Discover Tuesdays.
Directed by pioneering rock film-maker D.A. Pennebaker, this documentary and concert film captures Bowie and his band, The Spiders From Mars, performing at London’s Hammersmith Odeon on July 3, 1973. It was at this now-infamous concert that Bowie made a sudden announcement, shocking fans and media alike by stating “it’s the last show we’ll ever do”. Rather than marking his withdrawal from music, his declaration signalled the retirement of the Ziggy Stardust persona, and the end of a hugely influential chapter in Bowie’s own story.
Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars: The Motion Picture is a one night only cinema event, Tuesday 7 March. Book tickets.
