Motörhead’s classic 1980 single ‘Ace Of Spades’ is set to enter the Top 10 for the first time following the death of frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
Lemmy passed away on December 28 following a short battle with cancer.
Since then, fans have grouped together to try and get the single to Number One as a tribute to the star, setting up a Facebook page dedicated to the cause. The page currently has nearly 29,000 likes.
Now, the Official Charts Company has revealed that ‘Ace Of Spades’ is currently sitting at Number Nine in the midweek charts. Upon its initial release, the track only reached Number 15, meaning that this could mark its highest placing to date.
The short answer is yes they are 🙁 – the long answer is that you might be able to still get some from someone on Ebay. I was looking for some the other day and one guys ad went something like:
“I bought these tickets in Nov 12, unfortunately due to family commitments I am no longer able to attend. A camper van pass is included with the tickets. This entitles the holder and anyone else with the holder (up to a max of 6 I think) who possesses a camping ticket, access to the camper van campsite close to the entrance to the venue. The camper van site is a fenced area with its own security. There is access to exclusive hot showers and toilets and you are seperate from the rest of the campers.It is a much cleaner, more civilised area. Showers and toilets are cleaned daily. Camper Van area tickets have sold out for 2013, they are very limited when sold to ensure the area is not crowded.”
These tickets actually sold for a £620 price (with a face value of £490) this is a bit hefty, but if you want the luxury of staying in a campervan it might be worth it. The Ebay bloke went on to say:
“On arrival you are allocated a plot where you can park your vehicle and also pitch a tent if necessary, there is plenty of room to have BBQ’s etc and there is the security of being able to lock all of your stuff in your vehicle. You can also come and go from the site as you please in your vehicle. I was in the camper van park in 2012 and it was so nice to get back to a hot, clean shower at the end of each day, there is no overcrowding and security will only let pass holders enter at any time .
I don’t yet have the tickets in hand, they are usually sent out around 3 to 4 weeks before the event. I can show screen shots of the ticketmaster confirmation if required and will post the tickets recorded delivery the day that I recieve them.
