New street named after David Bowie to be unveiled in Paris

SHARE NOW

Paris is set to formally name a street after David Bowie on Monday, January 8, which would have been the rock star’s 77th birthday. 

The Connexion reports that the street, “rue David Bowie,” will be a brand new road near Austerlitz train station, in the 13th arrondissement. There will also be an inauguration party on the same day, with a photo and painting exhibit dedicated to Bowie running until January 14 at the city’s Galerie Athéna.

Arrondissement Mayor Jérôme Coumet first revealed the plans for the Bowie street back in 2020, noting that the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer “had a strong link with the city of lights.”

Interestingly, while Bowie will now have a street named after him in France, there currently isn’t one in his home country, the U.K.

Bowie passed away January 10, 2016, after a secret battle with liver cancer.
