The July 3rd, 1973 historic concert of the 'leper Messiah'. This was to be David Bowie's last concert with the Ziggy persona and the Spiders from Mars. A great medley of 'Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud'/'All The Young Dudes'/'Oh! You Pretty Things', a Lou Reed cover, and a Rolling Stones cover are but some of the highlights. Written by

This is a great concert film. Bowie is in his absolute prime and Pennebaker captures the moment. The film makes you you feel like you are actually at the concert not watching a movie. Bowie has never been better. This film is a moment in time.
