David Bowie fans are very excited about two recent developments: the remastered edition of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars and the chance to see where this iconic album cover was photographed.
The Remastered Ziggy
The remastered 40th Anniversary Edition of David Bowie’s groundbreaking and hugely influential 1972 album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, was released on June 5th by EMI Music.
Remastered by original Trident Studios engineer Ray Staff at London’s Air Studios, the album’s commemorative edition is available on CD and digitally, and in a special, limited edition vinyl LP/DVD package
Originally released through RCA Victor on June 6, 1972, Ziggy Stardust was David Bowie’s fifth album. The album had a major influence on music for years to come. Bowie famously killed Ziggy at his peak at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, on July 3, 1973, and pop music was never the same again.
The Album Cover’s Location
The “space invader” cover for David Bowie’s 1972 album, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars”, was photographed in an ordinary backstreet of London. Now fans have the chance to visit this iconic location on our London Rock ‘n’ Roll Tour.
This small side-street has for many Bowie fans the same significance as Abbey Road or Jim Morrison’s grave in Paris. And we’ll take you there when you book your London Rock ‘n’ Roll Tour through us.
