David Bowie performs his final concert as Ziggy Stardust in London 3rd July 1973:. The concert later became known as the Retirement Gig.

If you’re a massive David Bowie fan and an audiophile, there are some big reissues on the way this April.

To commemorate its 45th anniversary, a special pressing of Aladdin Sane will be coming out on April 20 which, per the announcement on Bowie official website, is the exact release date of this iconic album of the Ziggy Stardust era.  The release will be pressed on silver vinyl and will only be available at brick and mortar record stores.  There will be no online sales whatsoever, not counting the jerks who jack up the price on resale websites.

Also set for reissue are Bowie best-of ChangesOneBowie and ChangesTwoBowie.  Both will be out April 13, with ChangesOneBowie available for digital download and streaming, while ChangesTwoBowie will be available on CD, digital download, streaming, vinyl and special edition blue vinyl.
