LEMMY’s Health Issues Force MOTÖRHEAD To Cancel MONSTERS OF ROCK Appearance

April 26, 2015

Motorhead was forced to cancel its performance at the Monsters Of Rock festival in Brazil earlier today (Saturday, April 25) after their singer Lemmy Kilmister, got sick.


According to local media reports and festival organizers, Motorhead’s appearance was called off a few hours before the band was scheduled to take the stage at Arena Anhembi, São Paulo because Lemmy was suffering from gastric distress and dehydration.

Kilmister is reportedly undergoing tests at a local hospital and is unable to perform at this weekend’s event.

Judas Priest, who were scheduled to play right after Motorhead, will add 30 more minutes to their set as a result of the cancelation.

Lemmy in 2013 suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel), causing the cancelation of a number of the band’s European festival shows.

The rocker, who turned 69 years old in December, told Classic Rock he didn’t expect to still be here at 30, “I don’t do regrets,” he said. “Regrets are pointless. It’s too late for regrets. You’ve already done it, haven’t you? You’ve lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.”
