Motorhead Cancel Tour Due To Lemmy's Health

(Classic Rock) Expressing their "great regret", Motorhead have been forced to announce the cancellation of their European tour, scheduled to start in February. This is the latest in a series of cancellations. Lemmy has been struggling with health issues since he suffered a haematoma in July 2013, leading to a three-week spell in hospital.

The band called off a summer tour, then cut short their comeback show at the Wacken festival in Germany. They then postponed a European tour set to begin in November.

An official statement reads as follows: "Many concerted, diligent and focused efforts were made by founding member, and international icon, Lemmy Kilmister to deal with a range of health issues relating to diabetes. While there has been undoubted progress, Lemmy and the band were advised by doctors that it was still too soon to resume full touring activities, and so for the good of the future, the band and Lemmy reluctantly agreed to cancel.

"No-one is hurting more over this than Lemmy, and he feels the aggravation and inconvenience of every ticket, and every method of transportation, already paid for by loyal fans in anticipation of the tour. Being a road warrior of over 50 dedicated, non-stop years, it is equally distressing for him to be unable to occupy the top lounge of the trusty tour bus (his spiritual home) but Lemmy recognises that his long-term health must win." more on this story
