David Bowie’s Christmas Special 1977 (network edit)
“The David Bowie Hepzikat Velvet Flarney Solstice Spectacular… Live From Space!” (or David Bowie’s Christmas Special 1977 (network edit)). This isn’t the award for longest title. Instead, this holiday spectacular puts you in the passenger’s seat for a dysfunctional ride on a Bowie cruise where all his friends are invited. Join the emaciated Iggy Pop, the energetic Mick Jagger, the incoherent Marianne Unfaithfull, and the unintelligible Charo. Plus see the many phases of Freddie Mercury as he plays the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. The stage is set this year at the New Millennium Theatre—are you prepared to rocket off to a glam-filled holiday unlike any you’ve seen before?
