titans of rock

Israel's biggest Metal festival, Titans Of Rock, will be dedicating half of this year's event to Lemmy and the music of Motörhead.

The festival will take place on May 18th at the Havana Club, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Organisers Progstage Productions commented: "Titans Of Metal was one of the most exciting ventures we ever did and we are adamant on making it a yearly project. That is why the Titans are back in Israel in 2016. This particular event shall be called Titans Of Rock and it will mostly concentrate on 70s and 80s classics. Following Lemmy's untimely death, this show shall also commemorate his memory with unexpected performances of Motörhead classic tunes."

Titans Of Rock is really shaping up to be something extra special and will be one of the biggest global Motörhead/Lemmy tributes to take place this year. Hopefully we can bring you a full review.

The organisers recently posted the folowing on their Facebook page: "We are Metalheads. We don't care what religion you are. You're one of us."
