One of the most iconic performances in the history of modern music, David Bowie’s retirement of his Ziggy Stardust alter ego in front of 5,000 fans at London’s Hammersmith Odeon was captured on film by award-winning director D.A. Pennebaker on July 3, 1973. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of this event, the original, uncut version of the film has been restored in 4K and with a 5.1 theatrical mix and will feature never-before-seen performances with legendary guitar player Jeff Beck. ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS: THE MOTION PICTURE 50TH ANNIVERSARY is the closest audiences will come to being there on that unforgettable night 50 years ago.
