Motorhead cancel summer gigs due to Lemmy Kilmister's ill health
Wednesday 03 July 2013
Metal band Motorhead have been forced to cancel a number of summer concert dates due the ill health of frontmant Lemmy Kilmister.
A statement on the band's website reads: "Regretfully, Motörhead announces it has had to cancel its remaining six summer festival appearances. The band hate to let their fans down by missing any shows, but they expect to be back in full force this Fall."
"As you may have heard, earlier this Spring Lemmy had some medical maintenance for the long-term good, He was, at that time, advised to rest, but once feeling better, he of course resumed his life as usual. He has since been advised that he should immediately take some more time to rest."
Lemmy also released a statement thanking fans for their well wishes. He said: "Sometimes you can't do anything else than following doctor's orders, but be sure we will be back and kick everybody's ass."
The band cancelled gigs in Germany, France and Russia. They also pulled out of three concerts in June after Lemmy reportedly suffered a haeomatoma.
