David Bowie – Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide (Live)
Written by megarock on July 3, 2021
July 3, 1973: During a concert at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, at the end of a sixty-show UK tour, David Bowie announced that this was “the last show we will ever do.” Most of the audience and many London newspapers and magazines took it to mean that Bowie was retiring from music. In fact, he was quitting the Ziggy persona but not his music career. Only guitarist Mick Ronson knew about the announcement, which came as a complete shock, not only to the audience, but to the rest of Bowie’s band and crew.
