Lemmy thanks fans for support
Motorhead mainman Lemmy has thanks fans for their support after the band were forced to cancel the remaining dates of their European tour as a result of his health issues.
They called off a handful of shows after he suffered a haematoma, and he originally hoped to return to fufill the rest of their obligations.
Yesterday drummer Mikkey Dee revealed Lemmy had been ordered to rest for a few more weeks after falling victim to a “snowball effect.”
In an official statement the band say: “Motorhead deeply regret to disappoint all fans this summer. Doctors strongly advised that Lemmy needs to take his time to get his body back in balance.
“To achieve this, the doctor and Lemmy agreed it would be best to take it easy for a while. We can assure that the fall tour will be as explosive, loud and incredible as ever.”
Lemmy adds in a personal message. “I’d like to thank everyone who’s wished me well. It was a tough decision for me, as I don’t like to disappoint the fans – especially in times when the economy is bad and people spend their money to see us.
“But sometimes you can’t do anything else than following doctor’s orders.
“Be sure: we will be back to kick everybody’s ass.”
Motorhead will return in the autumn with new album Aftershock and a new European tour.
