David Bowie Live Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars Movie Gets 50th Anniversary Treatment

by Paul Cashmere on June 7, 2023

in News

When David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust on 3 July 1973, the performance was documented and released as the Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars motion picture movie.

When Bowie announced Ziggy’s “retirement” in 1973, many thought he was talking about himself. “Of all the shows on this tour, this particular show will remain with us the longest, because not only is it the last show of the tour, but it’s the last show that we’ll ever do,” he said.

The original movie was released on video and then DVD but has been out of print now for over a decade.

For the first time, the concert will be released in its complete form with ‘The Jean Genie/Love Me Do’ medley and ‘Round And Round’ featuring the late legendary Jeff Beck reinstated – the latter track making its very first appearance anywhere. Both performances were newly mixed by long-time Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti.

The 50th anniversary edition of Ziggy will be released on 10 August 2023.
