Fifty years to the day since David Bowie’s last performance as his famous alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust returns to the world-famous Hammersmith Apollo and cinemas worldwide. 

‘Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars: The Motion Picture’ is digitally restored (now in 4K and with 5.1 sound) with never-before-seen footage. The full, uncut version of D A Pennebaker’s film includes a performance by late guitarist Jeff Beck. The 50th anniversary premiere will allow fans to relive that iconic night in music history. 

The film will be preceded by a live conversation on stage with some of Bowie’s famous friends, including Richard E Grant, Don Letts, Danielle Perry, Madness frontman Suggs, Bowie’s pianist Mike Garson and co-producer Ken Scott. The Q&A, hosted by award-winning editor and Mercury Music Prize judge, Phil Alexander, will address Ziggy’s legacy and pan-generational resonance.

Mike Garson will also open the show as he did in 1973, with a live solo piano arrangement of some of Bowie’s best-known tracks.
