MOTÖRHEAD Cancels San Antonio Concert

MOTÖRHEAD Cancels San Antonio Concert

MOTÖRHEAD has canceled its scheduled concert tonight (Wednesday, September 2) in San Antonio, Texas — one day after the band walked off stage three songs into its performance in Austin.

A brand new message on the MOTÖRHEAD Facebook page reads: "As you might have heard, MOTÖRHEAD again had to abbreviate a performance due to [MOTÖRHEAD frontman] 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 delivered only three songs — "Damage Case", "Stay Clean" and "We Are Motörhead" — at the Austin gig before Lemmy told the crowd, "I can't do it."

The latest MOTÖRHEAD walk-off follows a similarly abbreviated performance last week in Salt Lake City, where the band cited the high altitude as the reason behind Lemmy's inability to breathe. A show in Denver, at an even higher altitude, was scrapped the following day before MOTÖRHEAD ever took the stage.

MOTÖRHEAD's next concert is scheduled for September 4 in Dallas, Texas.

The band's 22nd studio album, "Bad Magic", was released on August 28. The CD was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood with longtime producer Cameron Webb.
