Motorhead announce UK tour

Hard Rock legends Motorhead have today announced that they will be returning to the UK for their annual tour this November.

In keeping with what has now become tradition for any self respecting rock fan, Motorhead lead by rock icon Lemmy return for their annual, country-wide November tour. Starting on 2nd November in Wolverhampton, the tour will stop at 11 cities across the UK, winding up on 18th November in Manchester. The huge success of their 35th Anniversary tour in 2010 and the release of critically acclaimed rockumentary ‘Lemmy’, proved that Motorhead are very much keeping everything louder than everything else. This year, as well as the Motorhead tour, Lemmy’s side project ‘HeadCat’ will be releasing brand new album ‘Walk The Walk, Talk The Talk’ in July this and a Live DVD will be released later in the year as well.
 
Supports this year come from two of Britain’s most respected and long standing Punk bands Anti Nowhere League and UK Subs. Speaking on touring with Motorhead, Animal from Anti Nowhere League had the following to say
 
‘For years we have been asked by our fans ‘When are you going to play with Motorhead?’. So this is it, it will be a great ending to a fantastic year. Motorhead have always been a big influence on the ANWL and for me it is a personal honour to take to the same stage as these men. We are committed to making this tour something everyone will be talking about forever, the coming together of different styles of hard, in-your-face rock..’
 
The UK Subs added
 
"The UK Subs have been huge fans of Motorhead for years, so to be invited to be part of this exciting tour in November is a massive honour !"
 
Don’t miss your chance to see this stellar line up when it comes your way in November.
