Motorhead Tickets for Sale

Motörhead was formed by Kilmister. Initially, he decided to name the new band, as Bastard. But his manager Doug Smith, told him that with a name like 'Bastard', they would hardly appear in the charts. Smith words had a positive effect and later they decided to name the band as Motörhead. Throughout the years, the band has undergone many changes. The first line-up consisted of Larry Wallis from the Pink Fairies band on electric guitar and Lucas Fox as the drummer. They performed their first gig at The Roundhouse, London, in the year 1975. They started carrying out their recorded sessions at Rockfield Studios in Monmouth. After some time Fox left, and was later replaced by drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor.

In the year 1977, the band released its first official album, "Motörhead". They embarked on tour and due to their improved performances and the nature of the music, which was a blend of both metal and punk, they garnered favorable responses from the listeners and as a result their self-titled album became a hit. It was followed by two more albums, "Overkill" and "Bomber" which was also a huge hit and these albums established the band to be a force to reckon to. They became one of the forerunners in the group of heavy metal.

The 80's proved to be an eventful year for the band. They released many singles and EPs, such as "Ace of Spades", "Motörhead (live)", "Iron Fist", The Golden Years and the St. Valentine's Day Massacre EP (their collaboration with 'apprentices' Girlschool), all of which appeared in the UK Top 40 chart hits.
