Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars: The Motion Picture
In 1973, after years of novelty singles, flopped albums, and brushes with fame that had never quite delivered, David Bowie was finally at the top of the rock and roll world with his most outrageous creation yet, the outer space rock and roll messiah, Ziggy Stardust. His breakthrough album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" about an alien who comes down to Earth to warn humanity of it's impending doom, only to fall victim to rock and roll excess, had made Bowie a household name, and a lightning rod for controversy. His flamboyant outfits and androgynous alien persona kept him in the public eye and under endless scrutiny.
Constant touring while remaining in character as Ziggy on and off stage eventually took its toll on Bowie as he soon would begin to fulfill his own prophecy of rock and roll overindulgence. Bowie knew that rock and roll suicide was the only way out of self-destructive world he created. On July 3, 1973, live onstage at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, he had to break up the band.
Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars: The Motion Picture captures all of the energy, the theatrics, and the electrifying rock of David Bowie in his prime as he performs his most daring persona one last time with the Spiders, who themselves had no idea this would be their last show with Bowie. The world of rock and David Bowie himself would never be the same again.
