Motorhead (16th November 2010)
On Tuesday 16th November I got a nice surprise from the lovely people at LiveNation that I had been given 2 tickets to see metal stalwarts Motorhead with support from Michael Monroe at the Manchester Apollo.
Quick side note – the Apollo looks fantastic now its had a revamp!
Anyways! We missed the first support band (oops!) but then it was time for Michael Monroe (former Hanoi Rocks), Ginger (The Wildhearts), Sam and Yaffa (New York Dolls). The energy from the band was fantastic even with Ginger sporting a broken ankle! The set was unfortunately far too short for my liking but it got 8 out of 10 headbangs from me!
Time of Motorhead – Mickey D first came out onto his raised platform to huge cheers, followed by Phil Campbell and the great Lemmy sporting his cowboy hat and boots. Well the volume was amazing in the Apollo hall but Lemmy seemed to have a lot of problems with his microphone volume most of the night. The night finished on a brilliant rendition of Overkill! 8 out of 10 headbangs from me again!
