Motorhead reschedule European tour dates

By October 30, 2013 Culture, News

Motorhead has postponed their planned European tour until February 2014 to allow Lemmy time to recover from illness.


The dates were meant to support the band’s new album, ‘Aftershock’. It’s the latest in a string of missed shows for the hardened rock outfit. Motörhead canceled a handful of European dates mid-year, including festival slots, when Lemmy fell ill.

In a statement posted today on the band’s website, Lemmy writes, “We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don’t worry – I’m not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.”
