“I Demand A Better Future”
What’s not to like about dwelling Down Under when it means as a consequence you live permanently in the future!?
The upshot of that is that Australians get to celebrate the start of the first David Bowie ‘Ziggy Stardust UK tour’ at the Toby Jug, Tolworth, Surrey, on February 10th, 1972, before the majority of Bowie fans, Up Over.
Though the January 29th show at Borough Assembly Hall in Aylesbury is generally considered to be the first ever Ziggy Stardust show, the Toby Jug show was the official start of the tour.
The good people of Melbourne have chosen to mark the event with a gig by Georgia Fields and her take on the ‘Ziggy Stardust’ album.
Georgia is a big deal down in that part of the world, so it’s very cool that she’s agreed to play such an intimate show.
Sadly for those who might have attended, but this is the first they’ve heard of it, the show is SOLD OUT!
Nevertheless, the excellent BowieDownUnder website will hopefully have some footage to share with us, like they have for Julia Stone’s reworking of the ‘Let’s Dance’ album from back in January.
