Winter of 1991 saw the mighty Motorhead touring Australia – their first visit since 1984 by the Rockbrat’s reckoning. If you view their 1984 Australasian Tour Dates you will find it amazing that they played relatively small venues like the Manly Hotel and Caringbah Inn in Sydney, and the Yoogali Club in Griffith ! (was that a soccer club?). Just as I am trying to get my head around these bookings, I am reminded that on the 1991 Australian visit, they played the Queanbeyan Leagues Club in Queanbeyan ! This was obviously the Canberra date, but that place was a nightclub ! I’d much rather take in the full force of Motorhead in a night club than at the Hordern ! If the Rockbrat brain is correct again – they were supported by Canberra Metal legends Armoured Angel on that date. Ahhh the good old days ! Here is a Sydney press clipping from the that 1991 visit in case you missed out.
