Motörhead Played Final Concert with 16 Songs On This Day in 2015

It's hard to believe that it was only a mere five years ago when fans got to witness heavy metal legends Motörhead perform not only their last show ever, but the last time they'd ever see frontman Lemmy Kilmister play before losing his battle with cancer just a couple weeks later on December 28, 2015, right after turning 70.

The concert took place on this day, December 11th, in 2015, and it was part of their 40th anniversary tour, which was on its European leg before the band had to cancel the remainder of the tour due to Lemmy's inability to perform. At the final show, Motörhead played a 16-song set at Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin.

The setlist hit on all corners of their long-lived career, opening up with "Bomber" before diving into a colorful display of Motörhead greats like "Stay Clean," "Over the Top," and "The Chase is Better Than the Catch." They also busted out new song, "When the Sky Comes Looking For You," which was released on Motörhead's last album Bad Magic, released only four months before Lemmy's death.

The main set ended on their anthemic "Ace of Spades" before they did a two-song encore that opened with an acoustic version of "Whorehouse Blues" along with band introductions. The band's final song with Lemmy would be "Overkill," which featured the Bomber plane. They walked off the stage to "Pussy" by Rammstein.
