On the day Motörhead released their 22nd studio album, “Bad Magic”, frontman Ian Fraser Kilmster, also known by his stage name “Lemmy”, also fell ill with altitude sickness leading to a canceled show at this weekend’s Riot Fest in Denver, Colorado. The band was set to perform Friday night at the Denver Western Complex.
According to the Official Motörhead Facebook page, Lemmy very reluctantly decided not to play after experiencing difficulty breathing.
Lemmy Kilmster has encountered frequent health problems leading to show cancelations such as a hematoma in 2013, undisclosed heart problems, and more.
Motörhead’s next performance is scheduled for September 1st in Austin, Texas, and the band will continue a heavy tour schedule consisting of over forty remaining dates spread throughout the United States and Europe.
On a more positive note, we wish Lemmy a quick recovery and encourage you to check out the band’s killer new album “Bad Magic”.
