Motorhead Reschedule European Tour Dates
Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has been suffering from a myriad of health problems as of late, but things seem to be looking up for the rock 'n' roll legend, as Motorhead have announced rescheduled tour dates! Just last week, Motorhead postponed their entire late 2013 European trek, as Lemmy admitted he still needed more time off the road to focus on his health. Now, it looks as if Lemmy will be ready to roll in a few months, as the band has announced they will return to the stage in February.
Let's take a look back at Lemmy's health setbacks from this year. The Motorhead frontman had a defibrillator implanted into his chest this past June, which will send a strong electric shock to Lemmy's heart if the device detects cardiac arrhythmia. Less than a week after Lemmy's defibrillator news was made public, Kilmister suffered a hematoma, leading to canceled Motorhead shows.
After some conflicting reports regarding whether or not Lemmy was going to be okay, Kilmister found himself unable to perform Motorhead's full set at the Wacken festival, raising further concerns. Although it has meant the postponement of shows, fans have been understanding of Lemmy's need to rest up.
Thankfully, following last week's announcement that they had to postpone their European trek, Motorhead have rescheduled the tour to begin Feb. 13 in Glasgow, Scotland. Tickets from Motorhead's postponed gigs will be honored at all rescheduled dates.
