This Saturday, January 9th, the late front man’s friends and family will be gathering to celebrate his life at the only place that would make sense- the Rainbow Bar and Grill.
On January 2nd, the Rainbow posted this on Facebook:
Join us Saturday, January 9th as we say goodbye to a dear friend and loved one. We will open our doors at 2pm.
They later added:
ATTN!!! Due to the overwhelming and supportive response to Lemmy’s memorial we are now using the entire Strip to compensate for overflow. The Rainbow will close from 5:00 until 9:00 for a private service however the Roxy and Whisky will remain open to accommodate those looking to show their respects during this time.
Lemmy Kilmister had passed away on December 28th, 2015, only a couple days after being diagnosed with cancer.
There has actually been a petition made with the purpose of creating a statue in Lemmy’s honor. If you’d like to sign it, click here.
