Hawkwind Play Last Show of 50th Anniversary UK Tour w/ 15 Songs

Space rock legends Hawkwind brought their coveted 2019 50th Anniversary UK Tour to an end last night, November 26th, with a very special 50th Anniversary Celebration Concert in London's Royal Albert Hall! They had been on a two-week tour around the UK, leading up last night's special show in honor of being prog rock pioneers for half a century!
The band has seen a number of line-ups, with legendary musicians coming and going like the late and great Lemmy of Motorhead! But Dave Brock remains the sole, original member of Hawkwind. His backing band on the tour has included Richard Chadwick, Niall Hone, and Magnus Martin.
The past two nights of the tour have been extra special as they neared the end of the trek. For starters, the gig on November 25th in Guildford, England featured very special guest Eric Clapton performing alongside the band for the entire last half of the show. They did 17 songs with a three song encore over the course of the entire show!

Last night was special as well. We mentioned that Lemmy was part of the band in the early days... Well for the last concert of the year, Hawkwind surprised fans by inviting Motorhead's lead guitarist, Phil Campbell, to the stage to perform three songs (out of 15) with the band: "The Watcher," "Silver Machine," and set finale, a medley of "Master of Universe" and "Welcome to the Future."

Another special feature was the assistance of The Blackhearts Orchestra, who performed an extra special rendition of "The Golden Void." They did other staples that they've been doing all tour like "Motorway City," "Spirit of the Age," and newer music "Hurry On Sundown." It was truly a celebration of all 32 of their albums!
See the tour's last setlist below!
We can't wait to see what's next for the transcending space rockers!
