Top class authentic tribute MOTORHEADACHE to the late, great Lemmy Kilmister and 40 yrs of Motorhead featuring lifelong Motörhead fan Rob Campbell on Rickenbacker bass and vocals, capturing the essence of Lemmy in voice, stage clothes and that grinding mid-range bass sound.
Rob plays a custom built Rickenbastard made By Lemmy’s own luthier, and fitted with the pickups and tuners removed from Lemmy’s own Rickenbastard when it was serviced. Rob also has a custom Lemmy ‘Murder One’ Marshall Super Bass wired to the same specification as Lemmy’s and two Marshall 4×15 cabs with 4×12 cabs either side of the stage.
Motörheadache tour the UK and Europe extensively – this is not a pub band! – including prestige festival and biker rally dates.
After showcase O2 Academy shows later in the year as part of the band’s “The Curse Still Rings True” tour, in January 2018 Motörheadache will headline at the Lemmy Dutch Memorial concert in Amsterdam.
Expect lots of Fast Eddie Clarke-era tunes, regarded by many Motörheadbangers as the classic era from 1975 to 1982, including Ace of Spades / Bomber / Overkill / Iron Fist / The Hammer / Damage Case and the thunderous Motörhead – the last song Lemmy wrote for Hawkwind and the one that gave his new band its name.
Expect, also, material from ’83 to 2015; also Brian Robertson’s short stint and the ’84 re-launch as a four piece with Wurzel and Phil Campbell on guitars and finally, the longstanding Lemmy, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee era from 1995 to 2015 – Killed by Death / In the Name of Tragedy / Sacrifice / Ramones / Burner and Victory or Die from the last studio outing, Bad Magic.
Also on the bill – METALLICA RELOADED, of whom James Hetfield said, “…you guys are the ultimate sign of musical respect”. Praise from the source…
With over 40 years gigging experience amongst them, this band isn’t some kids trying to sound like their idols, they know what they are doing and take their approach and sound very seriously, playing exactly the same guitars and music gear as Metallica themselves. Check out these reviews:
“They play all the major venues including the 02 Academy group to sell out audiences all over Europe night after night, WHY? Well that’s simple, they have the best sound and Metallica show that money can buy” – O2 Academy Review.
”…you can’t argue with anyone that finishes with Seek and Destroy” – Metal Hammer Magazine
Top top night of metal and hard rock in store…
