Motorhead ended their show at at Emo’s in Austin, TX after just three songs on Tuesday as Lemmy’s health continues to be affected on the band’s North American tour in support of their newly-released album, “Bad Magic.”
The trio ran through show-opener “Damage Case” and “Stay Clean” before Lemmy told the crowd that he’d been sick for the past week. The group then started to perform “Metropolis” when the frontman shut things down.
“I can’t do it,” said Lemmy as he left the stage.
“As you might have heard, Motorhead again had to abbreviate a performance due to Lemmy not feeling well,” said the band in a statement on Wednesday. “This is a DIRECT follow-on from the altitude issues in Colorado, and clearly, Lemmy tried to get back at it too quickly.
For this reason, Motorhead will not play in San Antonio tonight, but the show will still go on with Saxon headlining. Lemmy will resume duties the moment he is PROPERLY rested and firing on all cylinders again.
“The legendary Motorheadbanger patience is much appreciated, and the band send their deepest thanks. More details will be released soon.”
The Texas news follows Motorhead’s cancellation of an appearance at Riot Fest in Denver, CO on Friday and comes on the heels of the group abandoning a performance in Salt Lake City last week after four songs when Lemmy experienced difficulty with his breathing.
Motorhead’s next scheduled date is Friday at the Bomb Factory in Dallas, TX.
