“If you think we're gonna make it, you better hang on to yourself”

 

Today is the 45th anniversary of the very first Ziggy Stardust gig, which took the form of a warm up show at Aylesbury Friars, Borough Assembly Hall, on January 29th, 1972.

 

Billed by the club as THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WORLD, Bowie gave the Friars audience an exciting taster of the phenomenon that would shortly sweep the UK and ultimately the civilised world.

 

The original poster from the gig in our montage is considered one of the holy grails for Bowie memorabilia collectors. However, there’s an even rarer Bowie Aylesbury Friars poster, which we’ll be sharing with you shortly.

 

Go here for further details regarding the Aylesbury Bowie Statue Campaign, where you can still support the project with the various pledges that are still available.
