DAVID BOWIE – THE MAN WHO STOLE THE WORLD
On July 6th Shock Entertainment will release DAVID BOWIE – THE MAN WHO STOLE THE WORLD. Available for the first time on DVD in Australia, the documentary features exclusive footage and interviews during Bowie’s extraordinary career that spanned over five decades.
In January this year, the world mourned the loss of one of the most iconic musical heroes, David Bowie. With the news of his passing flooding newspaper headlines, and millions of fans paying tribute to him on social media, his departure has left a mark on many all over the world. Known as a musical chameleon; David Bowie was able to flow and adapt his music and style to current fashion and trends.
Prior to his breakthrough in 1972, he recorded a proto-metal record and a pop/rock album, eventually redefining glam rock with his ambiguously sexy Ziggy Stardust persona. Ziggy made Bowie an international star, yet he wasn’t content with gleaming mere glitter rock. Each one of his phases in the ’70s sparked a number of subgenres, including punk, new wave, goth rock, the new romantics, and electronica. Few rock heroes ever had such lasting impact.
Just two days after his 69th birthday and with the uncannily timed release of his most poignant album ‘Blackstar’, he left his fans with a parting gift that will solidify his already indelible mark in music history.
THE MAN WHO STOLE THE WORLD looks back at his legacy and pay tribute to the life and memories of one of music’s most iconic musicians…David Bowie.
DAVID BOWIE – THE MAN WHO STOLE THE WORLD is released for the first time in Australia on DVD through Shock Entertainment on 6th July 2016.
