The health of 69 year old Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead makes the news again. Forced to miss a performance back in April at the Monsters Of Rock Festival in Brazil, Motörhead just canceled a performance in Salt Lake City, Utah last night.
The band posted the following statement:
“The people are great, but the air is just too thin. The high altitude makes it difficult for breathing, and that’s what happened with Lemmy tonight in Salt Lake City. He feels very bad to have cut the show short, but being that high up, he had some trouble breathing well. Lemmy appreciates everyone’s concern. The fans always rally round!”
Motörhead is scheduled to play Denver, Colorado tonight, which sits at a higher elevation than Salt Lake City, so hopefully things work out better. They’ll be on tour until September 25th, then will hit the open seas on their Motörhead’s Motörboat Cruise with Slayer, Exodus, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies and more on September 28th.
Motörhead just released Bad Magic on UDR Music today, their 22nd studio album.
