Ziggy Stardust: The Global Premiere

D.A. Pennebaker | 1979 | 157 MINS
UK
Performance:

Fifty years on from Bowie’s last performance as Ziggy Stardust, his celebrated alter-ego returns to the stage of the Hammersmith Apollo (then Odeon) and cinemas worldwide.

In Detail

July 3, 1973 - David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust, his most celebrated alter-ego, in front of 5,000 disbelieving fans onstage at London’s Hammersmith Odeon. 50 years to that day, Ziggy will return to that same stage for one night only.

July 3, 2023 - The Eventim Apollo Hammersmith (formerly the Odeon) will host the global premiere of the newly restored version of ‘Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars: The Motion Picture’.

The movie screening will be preceded by Bowie’s fans and friends live in conversation from the Apollo, who will address the original show’s legacy and Ziggy’s pan-generational resonance. This is the closest audiences will come to being there on that fateful night 50 years ago.

The new version of the film features:
• The full uncut performance featuring final scenes with the legendary guitar player Jeff Beck – including his high-octane performance on Bowie’s anthemic 1972 hit, The Jean Genie.
• A fully restored, 4K visual mix overseen by DA Pennebaker’s son, Frazer.
• A 5.1 mix undertaken by producer Tony Visconti.
• An extended running time of 1 hour 42 mins.
- Please note that there will be a short break in between the Conversation and the Concert, where the New Park bar will be available for drinks & snacks.
