Motorhead cancel more shows over Lemmy’s health

Motorhead have been forced to cancel more shows as frontman Lemmy Kilmister continues to deal with doctors over his health issues.

“Regrettably Motörhead have had to cancel their Dallas (Sep 4) and Houston (Sep 5) appearances,” announced the group. “Saxon will still be playing in each city (please check local media for up-to-date venue information). Lemmy fully intends to resume touring duties as, and when, his doctors give him the all-clear.

“Stay tuned for further updates, and as always, thank you for your support, understanding and good wishes.”

Lemmy’s health in recent years has affected the band’s touring schedule as he dealt with heart and diabetes issues.

The first signs of health issues on the band’s current North American tour in support of their newly-released album, “Bad Magic”, appeared on August 27 when Lemmy shut down a show in Salt Lake City after four songs after he experienced difficulty with his breathing due to the altitude.

An August 28 appearance at Riot Fest in Denver, CO was cancelled while Lemmy recovered but the singer, again, stopped the group’s September 1 show at at Emo’s in Austin, TX after just three songs and then cancelled their September 2 appearance in San Antonio, with openers Saxon performing a full set in their place.

As Lemmy waits for doctors to clear him to perform again, Motorhead’s next scheduled date is set for September 8 at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO.
