Lemmy to be honored at Lemmy 500 speedway event

Lemmy may be gone, but the cantankerous Motörhead frontman is far from being forgotten.
In fact, fans can look forward hearing his raspy voice again on a new live album that will be out next month. What’s more, those willing to venture out to Sweden later this year also have an opportunity to attend a rather unusual racetrack tribute concert involving the British metal band Saxon and some former members of Motörhead.
The upcoming album, Clean Your Clock, is slated for release on June 10 and will be available on CD, DVD, Blu-ray and vinyl formats. It documents Motörhead’s last recorded shows at the Zenith in Munich, Germany on November 20 and 21, 2015, which were captured by UDR Records.
A video of the band playing “When The Sky Comes Looking For You” at the Zenith was just released today (SEE BELOW). It follows a clip of “Bomber” that came out last month.
As if that isn’t exciting enough, Lemmy lovers with a passion for high-speed cars can also look forward to the upcoming Lemmy 500.
You heard that right! Motörhead’s late frontman will be the subject of a very special tribute during the finals of a V8 Thunder Cars racing series in Ljungbyhed, Sweden on Sept. 24. The Lemmy 500 event will also include a special concert by Saxon, who will join forces with former Motörhead members Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell to perform some of Motörhead’s most beloved hits.
“This is going to be a night to remember!” Dee told My News Desk. “Playing some of Motörhead’s greatest hits together with our friends Saxon is going to be a great tribute to our former friend and band member. The Lemmy 500 will go down in history as the rockiest race championship final ever!”
Tickets for the Lemmy 500 will be available in May from Ticketmaster.
