David Bowie‘s Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars: The Motion Picture is returning to theaters in its fully restored version for the first time in history.

The return of the movie will mark 50 years since Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, and will allow fans who did not get to see it the first time around finally experience that eventful night. Both the film and its remastered soundtrack have been expanded to include a medley of “The Jean Genie/Love Me Do” as well as a rendition of “Round And Round” featuring the late Jeff Beck, whose scenes were originally cut from the film’s original version.

“The film being shown around the world, is the closest people will come to seeing us play. I’m glad that there’s a chance for them to see us after all this time,” Woody Woodmansey, drummer from the Spiders From Mars, said.

Pianist Mike Garson added, “The Hammersmith gig itself was phenomenal. What people don’t know about that gig is that I opened the show on solo piano. David asked me to be his opening act. So, for just fifteen minutes I took some of his hits, ‘Changes,’ ‘Life On Mars?,’ and ‘Ziggy’ and made a medley for the gig. I came out to do the spot and I was scared to death. So was Bowie. He told me backstage that he was more frightened for me that night than for him!”

Watch the official trailer above. David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars: The Motion Picture will premiere on July 3 — 50 years to the day — at the Eventim Apollo Hammersmith (formerly the Odeon) and will be shown in over 1,500 cinemas worldwide on June 4. Check out the official David Bowie website for tickets.
