Motorhead frontman Lemmy had lung infection
Following the cancellation of several shows, and the premature ending (video) of two others, Motorhead has revealed that frontman Lemmy Kilmister has been battling a lung infection, "which has now been taken care of." As such, the band will resume their tour on Tuesday, September 8th in St. Louis. The Motorhead camp has issued this statement:
"The wait is over and the Doc has spoken. Lemmy had a lung infection (exacerbated by that Denver altitude) which has now been taken care of. Subsequently, Lemmy's ready to give it a go in St. Louis at The Pageant theater on Tuesday, Sept 8th where Motörhead will continue the 40th Anniversary tour in support of their new album 'Bad Magic'. "Amidst all the wonderful support Lemmy has received, many have rightfully said he owes us nothing as he has given us everything. We, however, owe Lemmy something, our total respect for his fierce, single-minded and beautifully stubborn determination to continue burning asphalt, playing rock'n'roll and live where he has always been most comfortable - on the road! Thanks again for all your support and see you soon!"
