Motorhead Members and Saxon Plan Lemmy Tribute Performance

(Classic Rock) Motorhead men Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee will join Saxon for a Lemmy tribute concert after a motor race in Sweden in September. The final of this year's V8 Thunder Cars series has been renamed the Lemmy 500 in honour of the Motorhead mainman, who died in December.

After the night race at Ljungbyhed on September 24, Saxon will perform a full-length show with guest appearances from guitarist Campbell and drummer Dee.

Frontman Biff Byford says: "This event is something unique - we've never before played a concert at a race track on a race day. It will also be a chance to pay tribute to our friend Lemmy, along with Mikkey and Phil."

Dee comments: "This is going to be a night to remember. Playing some of Motorhead's greatest hits together with Saxon is going to be a great tribute. The Lemmy 500 will go down in history as the rockiest race championship final ever." Read more here.
