Show at London's V&A museum celebrates David Bowie
LONDON (AP) — London's Victoria and Albert Museum says an exhibition devoted to musician David Bowie is the fastest-selling show in its history.
The museum says 50,000 advance tickets have been sold for "David Bowie Is," which opens on Saturday.
The exhibition draws together more than 300 objects, including sheet music, lyrics, videos, instruments and extravagant costumes — many from Bowie's personal archive.
It charts the career of the musical chameleon, who was born David Jones in London in 1947 and went on to create outlandish personas including alien rock star Ziggy Stardust.
This is the first time the museum has devoted a show to a pop star, but co-curator Victoria Broackes said Wednesday that "Bowie is no ordinary pop star." She says: "He has seeped into every area of our culture."
