Motorhead resumed their European tour in Gothenburg, Sweden on Tuesday as guitarist Phil Campbell rejoined the lineup following hospitalization for an unknown condition that resulted in the cancellation of three concert dates this past week.
“Gothenburg rocked it, Motorhead rocked it, Philip Anthony Campbell double rocked it and the tour is alive and kicking teeth and ears in again!,” said the band. “For all members of the media who engage in the modern-age bloodsport of celebrity death-watch-by-internet-rumour-spreading, we hope you feel the shame and shoddiness of your ‘work.’”
Campbell’s hospital stay forced the group to cancel sold-out shows in Berlin and Hamburg, Germany over the weekdn and a November 30 appearance in Aarhus, Denmark.
No details regarding Campbell’s condition have been revealed to date.
The dates are part of Motorhead’s 40th anniversary European tour in support of their latest album “Bad Magic.”
