Motorhead @ Zénith, Paris Nov 21 2011

Motorhead + No One Is Innocent @ Zénith Paris, Nov 21 2011
Motorhead is back at the zénith in Paris, Medium size 4000 capacity.
We get there early, No One Is Innocent is already on stage, powerful show as usual.
The zénith though not sold-out is packed with fans in their 40's most of them fat & bald, we haev some youngsters too, it's sweat & beer for everybody tonight, like in the old days, good !

Nice start with "Bomber", they changed the first song of the show @ every gig but the rest is quite the same: meaning 2 songs from the new album, 3-4 songs from the last 10 year period and the rest is just oldies but goodies. (see setlist below for details).
Same stage as usual , just a small backdrop , a VERY loud sound not that good and some shitty lights, impossible to take a decent picture but Patrice is used so he gave up years ago.
We have a lousy drum solo in the middle of "The one to sing the Blues".
Not the best show I've seen them perform, far from it, it sounds like they don't play as fast as they used to which is a good thing on some songs: "Stay Clean", "Metropolis" (here on video).

Overall Good show.
