Description by OLDIES.com:

This 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. Includes song from the album of the same title as well as tracks from "Hunky Dory".

Product Description:

The quintessential moment in glam-rock history, ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS is David Bowie at his best. This film of the 1973 concert (released 10 years later) documents the hallucinogenic collage of kitsch, Warhol/Pop irony, and flamboyant excess that was the Bowie phenomenon: his trademark synthetic androgyny is a musical symbiosis of feminine passion and masculine dominance that define his funky, gender-bending art and, ultimately, the glam-rock genre as a whole. Early on, the film cuts to elaborate backstage costume changes between sets, highlighting a playlist that includes such classics as "Changes," "Space Oddity," "Time," and "Suffragette City." In this comprehensive document of a seminal peformer in music history, director D.A. Pennebaker captures the enigmatic singer's smoldering brilliance like a Hubble photograph of a supernova; it is essential viewing for Bowie fans and music historians alike.

Plot Synopsis:

In the 1970s, British glam rocker David Bowie defined an androgynous, gender-bending style which had a huge impact on popular culture. Famous for his rock and roll characters and alter egos, Bowie put on a legendary unique live show. This film, from director D.A. Pennebaker, who also made the classic Bob Dylan rockumentary DON'T LOOK BACK, captures Bowie as his most famous character, Ziggy Stardust, the rock star from Mars. Bowie/Ziggy dramatically performs hits from the album of the same title, as well as tracks from "Hunk Dory." A must for the Bowie fan!
