Motorhead unfortunately cancelled their scheduled appearance in Texas last night and won’t return to live action until frontman Lemmy is “properly rested.”
The band pulled out of their show in San Antonio, their second gig cancellation in the space of a week after a performance in Denver was called off earlier. Frontman Lemmy has also cut two shows short in that time.
Lemmy walked off stage four songs into the Salt Lake City gig last week, blaming breathing difficulties on the altitude before only managing just three tracks in Austin. The San Antonio show went ahead without Motorhead, as Saxon stepped in to headline.
In a statement, Motorhead say: “As you might have heard, Motorhead again had to abbreviate a performance due to Lemmy not feeling well. This is a direct follow-on from the altitude issues in Colorado and, clearly, Lemmy tried to get back at it too quickly. 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.”
Get well soon Lemmy everyone is looking forward to your return!
