Motorhead announce world tour, remind us of Avalon's existence

Halloween tribute bands from Church to O'Brien's Pub rejoice! Motorhead are coming to town in March, and they're resurrecting the warm, sloshy memory of Lansdowne nightclub Avalon in the process (see the odd listing below). We can just imagine the back-room haggling over tour dates and venues as Lemmy slams his drink down and declares something about how the room will always be Avalon to him. Right on, duder, you're not alone. You. Are. Not. Alone. 

Catch up with Daniel Brockman's mid-December review of Motorhead's latest, The World Is Yours (quick recap: needs more "Ace of Spades"... or maybe less, actually), and check the full list of tour dates below. No on-sale or show info is posted at just yet, but we're sure Lemmy wouldn't lie about this.
