Classic Album Sundays KC: David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust and more
Classic Album Sundays is the world’s most popular listening experience and Kansas City is now part of this worldwide series. Classic Album Sundays provides an immersive experience where you will not only hear the story behind the album but will also hear it in a way you never have before on world-class hi-fi equipment.
Come celebrate the life and career of David Bowie with Classic Album Sundays. With ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars”, David Bowie turned a popular art form, pop music, into high-performance art. Bowie lived and breathed the character of his own construction until it nearly consumed him. Contextually, Ziggy Stardust, The Stooges, Lou Reed and Roxy Music’s debut helped signal the end of the sixties and the hippy movement and marked the musical and stylistic transition into glam rock and punk.
