(hennemusic) Motorhead have cancelled the remaining eight shows on their summer European festival tour following doctor's orders as Lemmy continues to battle some health issues.
The legendary frontman recently suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel), which caused Motorhead to pull out of three earlier dates; this came on the heels of news that the bassist had been fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems.
"Things are improving with Lemmy, but the doctors in Berlin are recommending that he rests for another couple of weeks," drummer Mikkey Dee told Swedish newspaper GT.se. "We can't keep canceling show after show, it's too costly. Therefore we unfortunately have to cancel the entire tour." more on this story
