The parade will take place in New Orleans on Saturday 16 January.

Arcade Fire have announced they will honour David Bowie with a street parade this weekend.

The Canadian outfit - who worked with the icon on their 2013 Reflektor album - have announced that a memorial parade will take place for the late singer in New Orleans on Saturday 16 January.

The Suburbs band will be joined on their "Pretty Things" memorial by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

On the Facebook event page, the band have asked fans to don their "best Bowie outfit or something more strange and meet us at 4pm on Saturday, January 16th at Preservation Hall." 

Arcade Fire earlier paid tribute to the rock star on their official Facebook account, saying "the world is more bright and mysterious because of him".

 

David Bowie was one of the band's earliest supporters and champions. He not only created the world that made it possible...
