David Bowie will be posthumously honored on London’s Music Walk of Fame, which is located near the Camden Town tube station.
The ceremony will take place on September 15 followed by a private event. Guests are expected to include Bowie’s friends, fans, and collaborators. On the Walk, Bowie joins other British music legends such as Amy Winehouse, The Who, Soul2Soul, and Madness.
The Music Walk of Fame was launched in 2019 as a cultural attraction and virtual museum, with AR technology revealing artwork, videos, and music.
David Bowie, one of the best-selling artists of all time, died in 2016. The Brixton-born artist would have celebrated his 75th birthday this year.
“David Bowie is a global influence, one of the ultimate influencers and sooner or later, we had to have him on The Music Walk Of Fame,” said Lee Bennett, founder of the Music Walk of Fame. “Our intention is for this to be the highest honour a music figure can receive in the U.K. and beyond, the unveiling of David’s stone ensures that legacy. We have huge plans for the future, but for now, let’s celebrate one of the greats of music.”
Bowie's London Walk of Fame honor comes just before the release of the documentary Moonage Daydream, which explores Bowie’s journey as a musician and artist. The film will be available in IMAX on September 16 followed by a nationwide release September 23.
