U.K.’s Guardian is reporting that Glastonbury Festival 2016 is planning some impressive tributes to the late David Bowie, Prince, and Lemmy Kilmeister.  Everything from a 50-piece orchestra to 3 epic sculptures placed throughout the festival grounds.  Lemmy’s sculpture is made up of spanner wrenches, aluminum ace of spades, a v-twist engine and a set of black ram’s horns.

Meatloaf was rushed to hospital late Thursday night after collapsing on stage during an Edmonton concert.  He had cancelled two shows earlier in the week due to illness.
