  1. Regarding riot fest in my location of denver…..I’m not into paying a higher ticket price for a festival and a bunch of bands I’m not even interested in seeing. I prefer a stand alone motorhead concert. I do like anthrax… that would be a great combo.
    not interested in festivals…..too much bs.

  2. Given Lemmy’s health issues and cancellation of shows as a result, is it worth planning a road trip to see Motorhead? Is it worth paying upfront for a concert ticket, booking a hotel room, gas money, other expenses, just to be disappointed yet again when Motorhead is forced to cancel their scheduled gigs due to Lemmy’s declining health? Sorry, I won’t do that again. I’ve seen Motorhead many times already. I’m happy with those memories.

  3. I have to agree…I’ve been to Riot Fest a few times in Chicago, but it sucks that this is the only show they’re playing here. Its full of way too many bands I don’t want to see, and Motörhead will play a shorter set as well.

  4. I can’t wait to see them in September! I just hope Lemmy’s health holds up. The poor guy’s has had it rough recently. I always joke that my ears haven’t stopped ringing from when I saw them for the first time back in 1988. I was 18 and I took my little brother, who was 12 or 13 at the time (great parenting mom and dad!) and I had NEVER heard a band that loud in my life, and I had been going to concerts since I was 12 (my dad took me to my first four concerts. Again, great parenting!). I asked my brother after the concert if he thought Motorhead was loud and his response was classic: He put his hands over his ears and said “OUCH!”.
