Bowie 75

There are 2 Pop up shops opening 75 days before what would have been Bowies 75th birthday. One in Heddon Street London (where the Ziggy cover was shot) and the other in New York near his appartment. They are an aural visual interactive retail experience :). Anyway I happen to be in London this weekend for football, so have decided to have a couple of extra days, and aim to get to the opening day, Monday 25 October at 11am.

65, and I am excited like a schoolboy! :oj:

Fame at last, made the BBC online news website, I was queuing outside the Bowie 75 pop up shop, on its opening day, and got caught on camera. If you enlarge it, that's me in the red jacket 🤣

How was it and did you buy anything of interest, Colin?

A bit underwhelming if I am honest, bought the coloured vinyl, re-issue of Station to Station(supposed to be only available at the 2 stores), my original copy is a bit worse for wear :( and the obligatory T-Shirt. I was in London for a long weekend anyway, so glad  went, but not sure i would make the journey just to visit the store.

I love Bowie but his legacy is being overplayed for money. The record was a good pickup though, I would like to find a copy myself but the shop will be a distant memory by the time I next get to London.
