Experience David Bowie's iconic rock opera The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars live!
Hot on the heels of his breakthrough masterpiece Hunky Dory, glam rock icon David Bowie's fifth studio album proved to be a major landmark upon its release in 1972. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust was recorded in less than three weeks, with the majority of its performances being first takes. Tracks like Star Man, Suffragette City and Rock 'N' Roll Suicide trace the fictional misadventures of Bowie's titular alter ego, a promiscuous rock god who is ultimately destroyed by his own excesses.
