The 3 July 1973 historic concert of the 'Leper Messiah' was to be David Bowie's last concert with the Ziggy persona and The Spiders from Mars.

Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars (sometimes called Bowie 1973) is a 1973 documentary and concert film by D. A. Pennebaker. It features David Bowie and his backing group The Spiders from Mars performing at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 3 July 1973. At this show, Bowie made the sudden surprise announcement that the show would be "the last show that we'll ever do", later understood to mean that he was retiring his Ziggy Stardust persona.

UK, 1973, Colour, 91 min., Rated PG-L, Dir. DA Pennebaker
