September 3, 2015, 5 years ago
Sadly, Motörhead were forced to cancel yet another show on their current US tour, opting not to play their San Antonio show on September 2nd in the interest of frontman Lemmy's health. The following message was posted on the band's official Facebook page.
"As you might have heard, Motörhead again had to abbreviate a performance due to Lemmy not feeling well. This is a direct follow-on from the altitude issues in Colorado, and clearly, Lemmy tried to get back at it too quickly. For this reason, Motörhead will not play in San Antonio tonight, but the show will still go on with Saxon headlining. Lemmy will resume duties the moment he is PROPERLY rested and firing on all cylinders again. The legendary Motörheadbanger patience is much appreciated, and the band send their deepest thanks. More details will be released soon."

Motörhead were forced to cancel their September 1st show at Emo's in Austin, Texas. This follows the band’s August 27th show in Salt Lake City which was cut short when frontman Lemmy Kilmister was affected by the high altitude and the cancelled Riot Fest in Denver over the weekend. At Emo’s Motörhead played three songs - “Damage Case”, “Stay Clean” and “Metropolis” - when Lemmy announced “I can’t do it.”
