10th June 2016


Keep Wednesday July 20th free in your diaries because Motörhead Day has been scheduled for that date in London.

The event has been organised by John Bingham who states: "20th July has been chosen as it was their first date at the Roundhouse in 1975, hence the venue in Camden. We are meeting at 3.00pm for a drink, to play Motörhead songs and reminisce our Motörhead stories."

The event will take place at Our Black Heart which is located at 2–3 Greenland Place in Camden Town, London, just 100 yards from the Underworld and less than a minute's walk from Motörhead's first record company, Chiswick Records.

Motörhead were booked to play the main stage at Download Festival at Castle Donington today, Friday 10th June 2016, and rather than replace them on the bill, the Download organisers have kept their slot open and it's anyone's guess as to what will take place between 5.30 and 6.30pm today.

A graphic of Lemmy's hat has been in place on the Download poster ever since the iconic frontman passed away in late December, just four days after his 70th birthday and two days after receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis.

The main stage has also been renamed The Lemmy Stage in his honour for this year.

The official press programme simply states "Motörhead Tribute" for their allocated slot and debate is raging as to whether Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell, or even Fast Eddie Clarke will make an appearance at the given time.

Whatever happens at 5.30pm today, our live reporters at Download will be on hand to bring you the news as it happens.

Motörhead played The Zenith in Munich, Germany on November 20th and 21st 2015 as part of what would become their last ever tour and UDR Records recorded these shows. They are to be released as double live album, DVD and boxset titled 'Clean Your Clock'.

The original release date of May 27th was delayed but the package will be out very soon.

Here's some video excerpts from 'Clean Your Clock':
