Saturday January 9th, 2016, wherever you are, whatever you do, take a moment to join the entire world in celebrating the life of Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead.

The livestream will coincide with a day-long celebration in Kilmister’s honor centered around the Rainbow Bar and Grill in Los Angeles. The rocker’s favorite watering hole had scheduled a 12-hour memorial service for January 9th starting at 2 p.m. PST, but the response was so overwhelming, the celebration was extended down the Sunset Strip. Both the Roxy and Whisky A Go Go will be open to fans while the Rainbow hosts its own private service between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. PST.

Lemmy’s place at The Rainbow has been reserved forever.

As per The Official Motörhead Facebook Page:

On SATURDAY JANUARY 9th, the world will come together and celebrate the life of our friend, and legend, Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister.

Family and close friends will observe a service at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery, Hollywood, commencing at 3pm PST and ending at 4.30pm. With such limited space available on-site, we respectfully ask that you don’t attend the cemetery… but we want you ALL to be a part of this, so we are setting up a live feed of the service via the internet on Motörhead’s official You Tube channel

So wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch the service with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends. GO to your favorite bar, or your favorite club, make sure they have access to an internet connection and toast along with us.
Or simply invite your pals around and celebrate Lemm’s life at home.

Whatever your venue, and however you can, let’s be sure to gather globally on Saturday 9th and celebrate the life of our dear friend and irreplaceable icon.
