MOTÖRHEAD Cancel U.S. Tour Due To Injury Suffered By LEMMY

September 9, 2004

MOTÖRHEAD have been forced to cancel their previously announced U.S. tour scheduled for September/October due to a foot injury suffered by vocalist/bassist Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister.

Lemmy injured his foot on stage about month ago while touring in Europe.

Kilmister, ignoring the pain and against his European doctor's recommendation, completed the few remaining shows on the MOTÖRHEAD summer festival tour.

Since he was not able to rest his foot for a while, Lemmy's injury worsened, and his U.S. doctor insisted in no uncertain terms that Lemmy stay off his foot for several weeks in order for it to heal properly.

MOTÖRHEAD will return for a U.S. tour in March 2005. "Lemmy, guitarist Philip Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee hate to disappoint their fans but it is necessary for Lemmy's injury to heal so that MOTÖRHEAD can rock long into the future," reads a statement from the band.
