MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister assures fans that says he and his bandmates will be back to “kick everyone’s ass” going further to say it was a tough decision for the band to cancel the remaining dates on their European tour due to his recent health problems.

MOTÖRHEAD did not play at this year’s With Full Force festival which took place in Löbnitz, Germany (located near Leipzig) on June 28. It marked the third cancellation of gigs in a week after the band’s frontman Lemmy Kilmister suffered a haematoma, the news of Lemmy’s latest medical issue followed reports that he was also recently fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems.

In an official statement, MOTÖRHEAD said: “MOTÖRHEAD deeply regret to disappoint all fans this summer. The band decided to cancel the summer shows. 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 that it would be best to take it easy for a while. While saying this, we can assure that the fall tour will be as explosive, loud and incredible as ever.”

Lemmy added: “I’d like to thank everyone who wish me well. It was a tough decision for me as I don’t like to disappoint the fans, especially in times where economy is bad and people spent their money to see us. But sometimes you can’t do anything else than following doctor’s order, but be sure we will be back and kick everybody’s ass.”
