The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust was originally conceived to celebrate this incredible album and David Bowie’s beautiful music.
With the shocking news of his death on Mon 11 Jan, this show is now also a loving tribute, honoring the work of one of the very greatest music artists of the last 50 years. Every note and every word in this show now has new meaning, deeper resonance and stronger ties to the hearts of those who love him and the music. The artists in this show are going to bring the music to you in the spirit of joy, respect, celebration, honor and the deepest possible shared love of his work and life. We have now made a second show available and we invite you all to join us to honor and share the work of this unique artist.
The creators of the show will donate 10% of the proceeds to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
