This 1970s David Bowie t-shirt is a true collector's piece for the ultimate Bowie fan. The muted green ringer-style shirt is from Bowie's 1972-73 Ziggy Stardust Tour and features a graphic of Bowie's alter ego Ziggy Stardust, a fictional androgynous bisexual alien rock star who was a messenger for extraterrestrial beings. Ziggy Stardust was debuted on the concept album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and was influenced by 70s glam rock. The album was considered Bowie's breakthrough album and received widespread critical acclaim and is considered one the greatest albums of all time.
Bowie premiered a new, edgy look with his Ziggy Stardust alter ego, which featured an orange mullet, tight-fitting glam rock-inspired outfits, and platform shoes. He showcased the new look on the Ziggy Stardust Tour, which was divided into six legs and included stops across the United Kingdon, Japan, and North America. The U.S. tour was split into two legs with three shows at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia in November and December 1972 and the shows were so successful that an additional six shows in three days were added at the Tower Theater in February 1973. The second leg of the tour featured a larger band and an even more spectacular show and debuted new songs recorded during the first leg of the tour in the US and in London from the album Aladdin Sane, which was released in April 1973. The tour featured live renditions of popular songs including "Ziggy Stardust", "Life on Mars?", "Space Oddity", "The Jean Genie", and "Suffragette City".
