The remainder of the European leg of Motörhead's tour has been cancelled due to lead singer Lemmy suffering with haemotoma.
Motörhead have been forced to pull out of French, German and Russian dates due to Lemmy reportedly suffering with haemotoma - a blood disorder where blood collects outside a vessel due after damage. The cancellation was announced on the band's website, "Regretfully, Motörhead announces it has had to cancel its remaining six summer festival appearances. The band hate to let their fans down by missing any shows, but they expect to be back in full force this Fall."
Lemmy Kilmister Is Out Of Action With Haemotoma.
Lemmy's identical condition caused the heavy rock band to call off three dates in June and the gravelly-voiced frontman is, according to drummer Mikkey Dee speaking to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet (reported in The Guardian), "devastated beyond belief" "[Cancelling a tour] has a bigger effect on him than it would anyone else. It's like chopping off a piano player's hands, " Dee added "he's not doing so well right now," sending ripples of concern throughout the 'Ace of Spades' band's massive fanbase who have already had to face the concern brought about by unfounded rumours that the 67-year old had had a defibrillator fitted due to heart problems.
