Bowie on the Grote Markt 'Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars'
On Friday 14 August, outdoor cinema Zienemaan & Sterren will screen David Bowie’s legendary final performance as Ziggy Stardust. Whether you’re a Bowie fan or not, you can’t miss Ziggy’s phenomenal resurrection, because 42 years down the line, David Bowie is still an extraordinarily captivating performer.
Grote Markt as maxiscreen movie palace
Having successfully entertained the city with Herman Brood last year on the Grote Markt, this year Zienemaan & Sterren will once again transform the city square into a maxiscreen movie palace. Enjoy the unique rock concert atmosphere reclining in your beanbag up front, enjoying a drink at the open-air bar or sitting on the City Hall stairs. Admission is free, the screen is gigantic and this cult movie (screened from an original 35mm print) will be shown just once.

'DAVID BOWIE IS' IN MELKWEG AMSTERDAM CINEMA
The Jacket of David Bowie by Elly de Waard
Monday night, January 12, Dutch publisher De Harmonie presented their planned book releases for 2015.
At the event, which took place at 'de Kleine Komedie' in Amsterdam, Elly de Waard proudly tells about the biggest fashion theft in the history of popmusic, the theft of David Bowie’s Jacket.
The theft took place on February 13, 1974 at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel were David received an Edison Award for Ziggy Stardust. According to Elly, David received the Edison thanks to her involvement. After the ceremony David was interviewed by Henk van der Meijden. Elly was not given a chance to talk to David and was very disappointed. When se saw David’s jacket, hanging over a chair she stole the jacket to satisfy her angriness.
To Dutch fans that tried to persuade her to return the jacket to its rightful owner she said:
“I will gladly give it back to David if he will ask me for it himself”.
To be continued… ?
According to Elly's Twitterpage her book, titled 'Het jasje van David Bowie' will be released later this year.
New Book: Heroes - David Bowie and Berlin
I want to bring your attention to our new title 'Heroes: David Bowie and Berlin' by Tobias Ruther.
This is the story of an iconic, inimitable artist and the city that changed him forever; this book examines Bowie's vital and creative years living and working in Berlin, where he produced the 'Berlin triptych' of 'Low', '"Heroes"' and 'Lodger'.
We would like to make all Bowie enthusiasts aware of this informative, unique and fascinating book. Tobias Ruther's book can be purchased from Reaktion Books in the UK (£14.95) or the University of Chicago Press in the U.S. ($ 25).
New David Bowie Albums-As-Books Prints
I've added three new prints to my series showing what some of David Bowie's albums would have looked like if they'd been written as books instead of songs. The prints are of 'Hunky Dory', 'The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars', and 'Aladdin Sane'. They're available here: Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane. I hope you like them.
