Classic Albums Live: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

June 1 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Do you remember listening to an entire album? The thrill of dropping the needle on the greatest music ever recorded? Classic Albums Live does.

Since 2003 we’ve been using the world’s greatest musicians to faithfully recreate these albums exactly the way they were recorded: note for note – cut for cut.

All of our attention goes into the music. There’s no cheesy costumes, no bad imitations – just musical perfection. What more do you need? This is the soundtrack of our lives. This music blared out of car stereos, roller rinks and concert halls. they were recorded.

Classic Albums Live is the modern day orchestra. Nowhere else will you hear these timeless classics performed with such care and attention to detail.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars – David Bowie 

Released – June 16 1972

  

Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am

Ladies and Gentlemen

That was David Bowie

And oh we miss him

 

Luckily he left behind some of the most defining work of the 20th century

And we’re going to pay Ziggy Stardust the ultimate respect

And perform it note for note – cut for cut

 

Looking back and clips of Bowie during this time

You see a man in complete control

Rewiring what you thought was entertainment

 

David’s arrangements coupled with his technicolour lyrics

Denote genius

A man on his own path

Taking on the world

And the only way for him to do this

Was via Mars

 

David Bowie is the one historical figure that i’d like to have dinner with

We’d start with tea

Then perhaps some brandy

And I’d ask him

Who does your make-up?
