Ground control to NYC: a David Bowie pop-up is coming to the city to celebrate the life & talent of the beloved musician.
The David Bowie Estate just announced “Bowie 75,” a retail and artistic experience celebrating 75 years of David Bowie that will be opening in both NYC and London later this year.
Set for the heart of SoHo, where Bowie once lived, the pop-up will open at 150 Wooster St. Though of course there will be plenty of Bowie merch, the experience also promises immersive audio and HD video screening rooms in partnership with 360 Reality Audio, an immersive music experience using Sony’s spatial sound technologies. “With music in 360 Reality Audio, fans will be able to hear and see Bowie content available for the first time in immersive audio, exclusively in the Bowie 75 locations,” a press release reads.
The limited-time experience will open October 25, 2021 and be available to visit through late January 2022.
The website for the pop-up, Bowie75.com, also shares that the space will hold special Bowie-centered events over the three months, in addition to the opportunity to view classic, rare and never-before-seen collectibles, apparel, music releases, photography and more.
It’s the start of a planned year-long celebration of Bowie, as curated by the Estate. There will also be rare behind-the-scenes video footage on display, and limited run LPs and CDs .
You can also expect a fine art photo gallery showcasing Bowie’s career and different “eras,” and an opportunity to get photos in different iconic costumes and set pieces. Stay up-to-date on specifics on the Bowie75 website!
