Music Video Nights – Free Screening – Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture
September 12 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
This digitally remastered glam-rock classic features David Bowie as his gender-bending alter-ego Ziggy Stardust, in his final performance, given at London’s Hammersmith Odeon in 1973. The original album which inspired the show, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” – named as one of the Greatest Albums of All Time by both Rolling Stone magazine and VH-1.
Outfitted in some of the most outrageous, form-fitting, colourful outfits this side of Mars, David Bowie helped invent glam-rock in the early 1970s. With striking red hair, longer legs than a flamingo and a face of strikingly androgynous beauty, his Ziggy Stardust was an inspiration for the recent glam-rock spoof, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” In the movie he performs some of his greatest hits, including “Changes,” “All the Young Dudes,” “Oh! You Pretty Things,” “Suffragette City,” “Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide,” and “Ziggy Stardust,” as well as Lou Reed’s “White Light/White Heat” and the Jagger-Richards classic, “Let’s Spend the Night Together”.
