Motorhead Comeback Show Cut Short Due To Lemmy's Health

(Classic Rock) Motorhead were forced to cut short their first show since frontman Lemmy spent several weeks in hospital, after he found himself too ill to deliver the full set.

Their Friday evening performance at Wacken Open Air in Germany ended at around the half-way mark, with the band having delivered six tracks in a style reported to be slower than usual.

Lemmy received medical attention at the beginning of July after suffering a haematoma (internal bleeding) and was ordered to rest by specialists. Bandmate Phil Campbell revealed to Classic Rock around the same time that the veteran bassist and vocalist, 67, had recently been fitted with a defibrillator to deal with heart problems.

Motorhead later cancelled the remaining shows of their European tour as a result of Lemmy's health. He later thanked fans for their support then Campbell promised he was on the mend and would be back in action in time for the release of upcoming album Aftershock. more on this story
