Motörhead has suffered another setback: the band has postponed their upcoming European tour dates so frontman Lemmy Kilmister can recuperate from his recent health problems.
“We have made the decision [to postpone the tour] because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health,” the singer explains in
a post on the band’s website
. “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.”
Kilmister adds he expects to be back on the road with the band by February of 2014. “When people come to see a Motörhead tour, they expect a Motörhead show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble,” he writes. “Your patience and understanding is appreciated...and know that I'm getting stronger and stronger every day, so watch out next spring Europe and we will see you then.”
You may remember Motörhead canceled a number of their summer tour dates back in July because Kilmister was rumored to be suffering from a hematoma, which is an abnormal collection of blood localized around blood vessels, much like an internal bruise. News of the frontman’s alleged ailment came in the form of an announcement from Barley Arts Promotion, shortly after the band canceled their June 25 concert in Milan, Italy due to what the promoter said was “a severe hematoma which makes it impossible at the moment [for Kilmister to perform] on stage.”
