Ziggy Stardust The Motion Picture is a live recording of David Bowie in concert at the Hammersmith Odeon, London on 3 July 1973.
This was the final time that David Bowie performed as Ziggy Stardust and is a legal version of the bootleg recording, His Masters Voice – Bowie and the Spiders From Mars’ Last Stand.

Ziggy Stardust Set List
I should warn you that this isn’t a classic album played live in its entirety like Astral Weeks.
David Bowie doesn’t play all of the The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. It only provides five of the eleven tracks. If you are looking for a live version of Ziggy Stardust, you get more on Santa Monica 72.
In fact there are a number of tracks of the Ziggy Stardust studio album that have never appeared on any official David Bowie live album.
- Intro (incorporating Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony) – 1:05
- Hang On To Yourself – 2:55 (Ziggy Stardust)
- Ziggy Stardust – 3:19 (Ziggy Stardust)
- Watch That Man – 4:14 (Aladdin Sane)
- Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud – 3:15 (on the album David Bowie)
- All The Young Dudes – 1:38 (song written by David Bowie but made famous by Mott The Hoople)
- Oh You Pretty Things – 1:46 (Hunky Dory)
- Moonage Daydream – 6:25 (Ziggy Stardust)
- Changes – 3:36 (Hunky Dory)
- Space Oddity – 5:05 (on the album David Bowie)
- My Death – 7:20
- Intro (incorporating William Tell Overture) – 1:01
- Cracked Actor – 3:03 (Aladdin Sane)
- Time – 5:31 (Aladdin Sane)
- The Width Of A Circle – 15:45 (The Man Who Sold the World)
- Let’s Spend The Night Together – 3:02 (Aladdin Sane – cover of a song by The Rolling Stones)

- White Light/White Heat – 4:01 (cover of the Velvet Underground song)
- Farewell Speech – 0:39
- Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide – 5:17 (Ziggy Stardust)
The 2003 remastered version has a much better sound than the original version released in 1983.
I haven’t heard this album yet.
