Bowie’s stone is set to be laid opposite Camden Town tube station, along the trail that celebrates iconic musical figures, which was founded in 2019.

The installation of the stone, which is set to be unveiled in a ceremony on 15 September, comes ahead of a new documentary on the icon. Moonage Daydream will feature previously unreleased archival material and is the first such project to be made with the full approval of David Bowie’s estate.

Speaking about the latest addition to the Music Walk of Fame, its creator, Lee Bennett 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.”

The trail is eventually going to include hundreds of artists and influential figures from the music industry and will span the length of pavement from Chalk Farm to Mornington Crescent.

Given Bowie, who died of liver cancer in January 2016, was one of the most iconic artists off all time, this latest addition to the trail no doubt marks an important addition and will be yet another means by which to remember and pay tribute to him and his legacy.

Moonage Daydream is set for release on 16 September, the day after the unveiling ceremony on Bowie’s stone along the Camden Music Walk of Fame.
