On September 23, David Bowie Is, a retrospective of the artist’s career, will arrive in Chicago for a three month stay at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. It will mark the exhibit’s first time in a U.S. city, having previously been on display in London, Berlin, Sao Paulo and Toronto.

The city’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel has decided to commemorate its arrival by declaring this upcoming Tuesday “David Bowie Day” in Chicago.

There’s also a rumor going around that residents of the city will be required to make their way through the streets while rocking out to “Magic Dance,” and they must style their hair in a similar manner as well.

(Okay so, maybe I made this one up.)
