Motorhead Cancel Concert Due to Lemmy’s Hand Injury


Motörhead bassist/vocalist Lemmy Kilmister has sustained an injury to his left hand, rendering the 65-year-old rocker unable to play and thus forcing the band to cancel its concert at Colston Hall in Bristol, England last night (Nov. 8).

The following statement was issued via the venue’s Twitter feed: “Due to injury, Motorhead have canceled their Colston Hall show tonight. Watch this space for returns/new date info. We are working with Live Nation to try to reschedule… We’ll let you know when we know what will happen re: rescheduling/refunds.”

Motörhead have a batch of dates remaining on this tour through the U.K. The next scheduled date is Nov. 11 at the UEA in Norwich, U.K. The band plays the Hammersmith Apollo in London on Nov. 12. They wrap this run of U.K. dates at the O2 Apollo in Manchester on Nov. 18.

The extent of the Lemster’s injury has not been readily revealed, but we hope that he heals quickly. But then again, this is Lemmy. He’s a rock god and can probably regenerate a new hand!
