Williams Liverpool MINI pays tribute to Ziggy Stardust


Williams Liverpool MINI recently held a unique event at its showroom celebrating the late David Bowie which displayed a number of images taken of him during his travels around the world.

The ‘David & I’ exhibition came to the city as part of a UK-wide tour and saw many delighted fans attend the iconic event which showcased 40 never-seen-before photographs of the singer and actor.

Off Beat Lounge, in conjunction with Denis O’Regan, David Bowie’s friend and favoured photographer throughout the 1980s, took visitors on a journey with Bowie 'the tourist', 'the relaxed back stage band leader' and of course 'legendary live performer'.

All photographs were shot as David and Denis toured the world together between 1978 and 1987. Denis O’Regan also provided a 'friend’s eye view' on one of the world’s most famous, charismatic and revered rock stars during question and answer sessions with attendees.

Tony Crolla, head of business at Williams Liverpool MINI, commented: “Many of us were deeply saddened by the passing of David Bowie earlier this year and so we were honoured to host this one-of-a-kind exhibition at our MINI retail centre.

“It was a fantastic evening and provided fans with an exclusive glimpse into Bowie’s life during the 70s and 80s. We look forward to holding more events like this in the future.”
