To celebrate the 75th anniversary of David Bowie’s death, a pop-up store has been opened just yards away from Ziggy Stardust.

Bowie 75 is located in Heddon Street Mayfair. Here was the cover shot for the 1972 album The Rise and Fall of ZiggyStardust and The Spiders From Mars.

This store will sell limited edition records, and it will display behind-the-scenes footage featuring the Starman star.

It will be closed in the New Year – Bowie would’ve turned 75 on January 8.

The 14 Heddon Street outlet in central London has an exhibition of photographs and other installations which will give insight into Bowie’s career.

It is managed by the estate of his star and forms part of a yearlong celebration.

Nile Rodgers visited the shop before and called it “amazing” after he produced Bowie’s most-sold album, Let’s Dance.

He stated, “It’s my first experience with swag that’s not mine,”

He said that Bowie was the most important person in his life.

Let’s Dance gave him a great deal of faith. He was in a new period of his life, and was trying to communicate something else. But he trusted me to do the right thing.

He was a great friend and we had a lot of fun together. It was one of my first trips to Thailand. I got mad at my girlfriend for not going. I then walked in a restaurant to hear David Bowie say “hey Nile”.

Bowie also has a sister shop in New York. It is located at 150 Wooster St in SoHo.

A Bowie album, which was never released officially during his life time, will be out on the day of his birth.

Toy was originally recorded in 2001. It leaked online in 2011.

Bowie was born David Robert Jones on 8th January 1947 in Brixton (south London). He was just six years old when his family moved to Bromley in Kent.
