"New York's a go-go" and "Things seem good again” as the David Bowie Estate launches Bowie 75, a year-long celebration marking David Bowie’s 75th birthday with the openings of two curated, experiential pop-up shops – one at the site of the earliest confirmed Ziggy Stardust sighting and one in his adopted hometown where Bowie’s final album ★ (pronounced “Blackstar”) was created.
For a very limited window beginning Oct. 25, 75 days before the anniversary, through late January 2022, the Bowie 75 locations will be up and running at 150 Wooster Street – steps away from Bowie’s longtime downtown New York City neighborhood – and 14 Heddon Street – the London location where the cover of “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars” was shot.
The pop-ups will offer visitors a unique and immersive career-spanning deep dive into the sound and vision of David Bowie, with a variety of features, including immersive audio and HD video screening rooms in partnership with 360 Reality Audio. With music in 360 Reality Audio, fans will be able to hear and see Bowie content available for the first time in immersive audio, exclusively in the Bowie 75 locations. Hours of video content will be available, including previously unseen behind-the-scenes material, rare footage from the “Heathen” and “Reality” eras and more. Fans will be able to purchase limited-edition releases of exclusive Bowie apparel and collectibles and limited-run LPs and CDs from both the Warner/Parlophone and Sony catalogs. There will also be exclusive fine art photography, including gallery installations documenting Bowie’s many iconic eras, personae and changes. There will also be intimate special guest events with guests to be announced.
