    The commemorative tile will be revealed on Thursday September 15, with an opening ceremony attended by friends, collaborators and fans of the icon who died in 2016.

    The plaque scheme ultimately aims to create a Hollywood Boulevard-style route from Chalk Farm to Mornington Crescent featuring hundreds of musicians associated with the capital.

    This comes at the same time as the release of a new documentary ‘Moonage Daydream’, by Brett Morgen, all about the singer’s life.

    The film includes previously unseen footage from Bowie’s personal archives and will be released at the IMAX on September 16 and UK-wide on September 23.

    Lee Bennett, founder of The Music Walk OF Fame, said: “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.

    “Our intention is for this to be the highest honour a music figure can receive in the UK 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.”
