David Bowie Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (The Motion Picture Soundtrack) on 180g 2LP

Historic Live Album Documenting Bowie's Final Performance as His Most Famous Alter Ego Ziggy Stardust!

The events of July 3, 1973 at London's Hammersmith Odeon made rock and roll history: David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust! His final concert appearance as Ziggy was the 60th of 40 dates (matinees included) and the last of the planned UK Ziggy Stardust gigs. It has famously become known as "The Retirement Gig." The two Hammersmith Odeon concerts (July 2nd and 3rd) were designed to take the place of a cancelled second show at Earl's Court.

By July 1973, Bowie had been touring and promoting his album for nearly a year without a break. The original plan was for a Ziggy Stardust tour of Europe to follow the third UK Tour, then a third US Tour with 38 confirmed concerts beginning on September 1, 1973 and ending on the 31st October 31, 1973 in Texas. The retirement announcement at the end of the concert came as a major shock...to fans, the majority of the music press, and the Spiders From Mars themselves. It later transpired that Bowie had only told his manager and Mick Ronson of his plans to retire Ziggy Stardust

Personnel on the night included David Bowie, Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder, and Mick Woodmansey while the excellent set list features definitive live takes on several Ziggy Stardust and then-unreleased Aladdin Sane cuts, a thrilling "All the Young Dudes," and a peerless cover of the Velvet Underground's "White Light/White Heat."
