music news 27/03/2018

The world's first statue of David Bowie has been unveiled in the English town that he first performed as Ziggy Stardust.

The statue was created after a successful crowdfunding campaign and is a bronze sculpture titled 'Earthly Messenger'.

The statue has been placed in the market square of Aylesbury.

Promoter, David Stopps came up with the idea saying the town had retained close links with the artist until his death in 2015.

"The reaction to the statue has been so positive," Stopps told the BBC. "When you get something like this, people either love it or hate it. If people say 'I hate it' or 'I absolutely love it,' then you know it's real art. That's the definition of art."

The statue also features a webcam with speakers that play a Bowie song every hour between 9AM and 9PM.
