Although queer popstar David Bowie passed away January 10, 2016, his estate is celebrating what would have been his 75th year on the planet. Those celebrations continue with curated experiential pop-up shops — one at the site where Ziggy Stardust first appeared in 1972, and the other in Bowie’s adopted hometown where he recorded his final album ★ (aka Blackstar).
Covers of Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and ★
One of the Bowie 75 pop-ups is located in New York City at 150 Wooster Street, while the other is opened across the pond, at 14 Heddon Street — the London location where the cover of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and theSpiders from Mars was photographed. The two shops will only be open from now to late January 2022.
Designed by Factory360, an agency known for its brand activation campaigns, the pop-ups provide the opportunity to dive deep into Bowie’s career-spanning sound and vision. Immersive audio and HD video screening rooms offer hours of video content including previously unseen behind-the-scenes material, rare footage from the Heathen and Reality eras, and more.
Gallery installations of exclusive fine art photography document Bowie’s many iconic eras, personae, and transformations; and fans can place themselves in iconic costumes and set pieces to create Instagram-worthy photos.

And of course there will also be plenty for visitors to buy too, including limited edition releases of exclusive Bowie apparel and collectibles, as well as limited run LPs and CDs from both the Warner/Parlophone and Sony catalogs.
