Celebrating Fifty Years of 'Ziggy Stardust'

16 Jun 2022

On this day fifty years ago, David Bowie released the instant classic The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars - a record without which any Greatest Albums of All Time list is simply incomplete. As Bowie's fifth album, Ziggy Stardust went on to be the album that caused him to ascend into international superstardom. His extra-terrestrial rockstar creation, Ziggy Stardust, staged some of the most spectacular and innovative tours to date, expanding the parameters of the live rock show and singlehandedly launching a worldwide glam explosion.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary, the Anniversary Edition of Moonage Daydream arrives in UK bookstores next week (June 21st). 
It started in 2002, when David Bowie and Mick Rock created the signed limited edition, which sold out in a matter of months and became lore among David Bowie fans. Twenty years on, it remains the closest readers will get to understanding Bowie through his own words, alongside over 600 electric photographs by Rock. To find out more about a very special, limited run of Publisher's Copies, coming soon, click here.
'This is a book of extraordinary photographs. Ziggy Stardust blazed briefly but intensely, and I am delighted to see his life and times as a rock'n'roll star immortalised in this book.' - David Bowie 
'The closest we'll ever get to a straight up Bowie autobiography - but who'd ever want anything straight-up from Bowie?' - Rolling Stone
