MOTÖRHEAD: 'Stage Fright' DVD To Receive U.S. Release In January

SPV USA has set a January 10, 2006 release date for MOTÖRHEAD's 30th anniversary DVD, entitled "Stage Fright". A four-minute trailer for the DVD has been posted online at this location (Real Media).

"Stage Fright" was recorded during a show at the Phillipshalle in Düsseldorf on December 7, 2004. The set features 20 songs from the entire MOTÖRHEAD history, including "Overkill", "Ace of Spades" and "Iron Fist". Directly after the show, MOTÖRHEAD embarked on a three-month U.S. tour, culminating in a performance at the WrestleMania in Los Angeles in front of 20,000 wrestling fans. This memorable occasion was broadcast in 50 countries and witnessed by over 50 million viewers. "Stage Fright" consists of two DVDs, DVD 1 featuring the Düsseldorf show, shot with 23 high-definition cameras under the direction of Sven Offen (PAPA ROACH, HEATHER NOVA, among others). Gert Hof, famous not only for his work with RAMMSTEIN, was enlisted to take care of the show's light design. As a special bonus, there is an interactive DVD check with MOTÖRHEAD, with the three musicians contributing lots of interesting comments about the DVD.

DVD 2 reveals previously unreleased insights, not only into the inner life of the band, but also into the rock 'n' roll circus in general. There are interviews with band mastermind Lemmy, guitarist 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 sound check, 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 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 (!!!) and comes in an ear-bleeding 5.1 mix, making it the most complete (and mandatory) live MOTÖRHEAD release yet!
