Watch Bowie In 4K Upgrade Of ‘Suffragette City’ From Final Ziggy Performance
A new 4k upgrade of David Bowie performing Suffragette City in his final performance as Ziggy Stardust has been shared. Watch below.
Now, the fully restored film and soundtrack will be released for the first time for the 50th anniversary of the show. Renowned filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker (Monterey Pop, Bob Dylan – Don’t Look Back, Depeche Mode – 101) captured the momentous event by filming David Bowie and The Spiders From Mars backstage and onstage. The digital restoration of the new version of the film has been overseen by his son, Frazer Pennebaker with remastered audio.
pre-order David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars: The Motion Picture 50 Anniversary editions here
Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars – The Motion Picture 50th Anniversary will be available in a range of formats – 2CD & Blu-Ray, 2CD, limited edition gold vinyl (2LP) and both standard and high resolution digital.
The film and its soundtrack have been newly remastered with the medley of The Jean Genie/Love Me Do and Round And Round featuring the late legendary Jeff Beck reinstated – the latter track making its very first appearance anywhere. Both performances were newly mixed by long-time Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti.
On 3 July, the Eventim Apollo Hammersmith (formerly the Odeon) will host the global premiere of the newly restored version of the film, 50 years to the day after the legendary show. The evening will also include an on-stage conversation with Bowie collaborators and contemporary musicians that will precede the film screening. They will address the original show’s legacy and Ziggy’s pan-generational resonance.
The screening will be preceded by a Q&A live on stage with Richard E Grant, Don Letts, Danielle Perry, Ken Scott, Madness frontman Suggs and Bowie’s pianist Mike Garson.
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.
