Motörhead has suffered yet another setback: the band has canceled their upcoming European tour dates so frontman Lemmy Kilmister can continue to recuperate from his recent health problems.
“Many concerted, diligent and focused efforts were made by founding member, and international icon, Lemmy Kilmister to deal with a range of health issues relating to diabetes," writes the group in joint statement on their Facebook page . "While there has been undoubted progress, Lemmy and the band were advised by doctors that it was still too soon to resume full touring activities, and so for the good of the future, the band and Lemmy reluctantly agreed to cancel.”
The band’s European trek was originally scheduled to begin last November, but was postponed so Kilmister, 68, could recover from recent pacemaker surgery. Motörhead also canceled a number of their summer tour dates last year because the singer was rumored to be suffering from a hematoma, which is an abnormal collection of blood localized around blood vessels, much like an internal bruise.
