The next convention will coincide with both the 40th anniversary of the release of Bowie’s album ‘Let’s Dance’ and the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘Aladdin Sane’.

Dave Pichilingi, co-founder of the David Bowie World Fan Convention, said: “Bringing the David Bowie World Fan Convention to New York is about getting the story to the heart of its story, recording albums, including those classics from later life. , ‘The Next Day’ and ‘Blackstar’, as well as ‘Let’s Dance’ and ‘Never Let Me Down’ are all rooted in the city.

“This year’s event proved the stature of musicians, photographers, filmmakers and other high profile Bowie collaborators that this event can attract and New York will certainly be no different.”
