Watch Footage from Motorhead’s Last Concert

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

While we mourn the passing of Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, his music lives on — and as evidenced by this fan-shot footage from the band’s final show, he kept rocking almost until the end.

The concert, which took place Dec. 11 in Berlin, found the band running through a 16-song set that blended fan favorites like “Bomber,” “Stay Clean” and “Metropolis” with newer numbers like “When the Sky Comes Looking for You” – a track from Motörhead’s most recent studio LP, this year’s Bad Magic. The final number of the encore, which you can watch above, was the classic title track from 1979’s Overkill.

The Berlin show came before a holiday break for the band, but it wasn’t supposed to be a permanent one: Motörhead’s always-busy touring schedule had them traveling through Europe until late February of next year, a show of dogged determination in the face of multiple health-related postponements and cancellations that kept the group from living up to their usual rock-steady standards. Lemmy, who’d personally dealt with surgery and illness while on the road in recent months, apparently remained in high spirits, joking that he was “still indestructible.”

Sadly, although Lemmy would soon succumb to cancer, he was right in one important sense: As demonstrated by the fact that this was Motörhead’s 40th anniversary tour, the band’s signature brand of rock remained in high demand at the time of Lemmy’s passing – and echoes of its influence will continue to reverberate through modern music for decades to come. Watch their final performance of “Overkill” above, and check out the rest of the band’s last concert here.
