The tenth DVD by the legendary British Heavy/Speed Metal/Hard Rock band.
This live was filmed at the Philipshalle, Düsseldorf, Germany, December 7, 2004, to commemorate the band's 30th anniversary.
30 years of Motörhead… and absolutely not quiet in any way! If you do not believe, watch "Stage Fright" - and get a master class from Lemmy & Co.!
Although it was technically filmed one year too early, the discreetly double entendre-named "Stage Fright" DVD is meant to commemorate Motörhead's 30th anniversary (1975-2005), and does so with rather impressive results. The concert itself is presented in unimpeachable visual and audio quality (multi-angle cameras, DTS 96/24, Dolby 5.1, and AC3 stereo sound), and captures Motörhead turning in a reliably top-notch performance from what was widely held to be the band's finest touring cycle in years - not only because it was in support of a surprisingly memorable studio effort (2004's "Inferno", introducing the memorable "Killers" and the brilliant acoustic guitar and harmonica breakdown "Whorehouse Blues"), but for reviving a few rarely played old classics ("Shoot You in the Back", "Over the Top", "Dancing on your Grave") amidst the usual on-stage warhorses, both welcome and necessary ("Killed by Death", "Ace of Spades", "Overkill") and inexplicably enduring ("Dr. Rock", "Metropolis", "No Class" - all in serious need of retirement). Add to this an entertainingly crass and often self-demolishing commentary track provided by the ever lovable (if increasingly mummified - he is 60, you know!) Lemmy Kilmister and merry henchmen Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee (incidentally, celebrating ten years as the most stable lineup Motörhead has ever had), and you may also be looking at a live concert first!
Disc One features the band's concert in Düsseldorf, Germany and the bonus (DVD-Check with Motörhead, Exclusive Audio Commentary and Multiangle Feature).
Disc Two includes interviews with Lemmy, Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee, as well as the road crew, who talk about life on tour. Viewers get a rare chance to watch the roadies doing their work, listen in to the soundcheck, meet the band's cook and accompany their entourage on the road. There is also an L.A. special, fans' comments and other special features. The icing on the cake is the DVD-Rom part with “Overkill” High Definition Track, Windows Media HD, the "Life's a Bitch" realtone for your mobile, Motörhead wallpaper for your PC and mobile, photos from the WrestleMania show in Los Angeles, and an extensive discography!
All in all, "Stage Fright" offers over four hours of playing time!!
