New Kickstarter Campaign to Erect David Bowie Statue

The world debuts of Bowie's Hunky Dory & Ziggy Stardust were in Ayelsbury

A Kickstarter campaign aims to raise £100,000 ($160, 000 Canadian) to erect a statue of David Bowie in Aylesbury Market Square in Buckinghamshire. It’s the same Market Square Bowie references in the opening line of the track Five Years.

“Why Aylesbury?…Aylesbury was the place that one of the greatest stars of the modern era chose to perform the world debut of both ‘Hunky Dory’ and ‘Ziggy Stardust’.”

With 27 days to go, the campaign has already reached £27,281.
