Lemmy Kilmister needs to take some time off. Motörhead recently ended a show early in Salt Lake City, UT, cancelled another in Denver CO, and now last night in Texas the band ended a show early again.
From Glide Magazine, reporting on the show:
“Following a positively crushing set from the glorious legends of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Saxon, Lemmy emerged onstage looking fatigued and winded. Though a little slow on the bass, Lemmy was clearly trying hard to make it through set opener “Damage Case”, but something felt off. “Stay Clean” and “We Are Motörhead” also felt lackluster despite the energy of his band. After announcing the next song – “Metropolis” – Lemmy let out a sigh and announced, “I can’t do it”, before leaving the stage with the rest of his band. He returned moments later and apologized to a disappointed but supportive Austin crowd, which was followed by the house lights and music coming on, and concerned (slightly annoyed) fans funneling out.”
Motorhead had to cancel their appearance at the Monsters Of Rock Festival appearance Brazil earlier this year due to Lemmy’s health, which all goes back to 2013, when it was revealed that the now 69 year-old Lemmy was having heart problems.
