David Bowie is set to revisit his alter-ego past as Ziggy Stardust by releasing a live album from one of his most iconic live dates.
The rocker's 18-track David Bowie Live Santa Monica '72 will be released later this year (08). It was originally recorded at the Los Angeles Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on 20 October, 1972, as part of Bowie's legendary Ziggy Stardust tour.
He says, "I can tell that I'm totally into being Ziggy by this stage of our touring. It's no longer an act; I am him.
"This would be around the tenth American show for us and you can hear that we are all pretty high on ourselves. We train wreck a couple of things, I miss some words and sometimes you wouldn't know that pianist Mike Garson was onstage with us but overall I really treasure this bootleg. Mick Ronson is at his blistering best."
David Bowie, Live Santa Monica '72 is set to hit stores on 30 June (08).
