Starting this Sunday, the life of LEGENDARY performer David Bowie will be up for show & tell at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. With 50,000 pre-sold tickets, the exhibit has broken box-office records and is now the most anticipated exhibit in the museum's history.
The exhibit traces Bowie's rise to fame, from his early beginning in South London, through his "Changes" era, through the release of his first new album in ten years, "The Next Day", which was released last week. There are articles of clothing from the all Bowie eras, including the striped bodysuit from the iconic 1973 Alladin Sane tour and a familiar blue, gold and red Freddie Burretti jumpsuit (his famous Ziggy Stardust ensemble) that fans can check out. In keeping with how innovative the superstar is, there are also multimedia stations in the exhibit which feature rare footage from concerts in the 60's and 70's, that show his rises and subsequent falls in fame. The soundtrack will be nothing less than stellar as well, and will feature music that spans from his entire career.
The 66-year-old sure made a lasting impression on the world and I just wish I was in London to check out this amazeballs sounding exhibit. This is a superfan's dream, it's like Bowie Candyland. "David Bowie Is" will run from March 23rd through August 11th.
Londoners, will you be going to see the "David Bowie Is" exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum?
