It appears the statement released last week on Motörhead's website was slightly premature, as Lemmy's health issues have forced the cancelation of the remainder of their current European tour.

According to Blabbermouth, drummer Mikkey Dee revealed the news of the cancelations to a few European news sources. "Everything started with him falling and getting a nasty blow to his hip a little over a week ago," Dee said.

"Things are improving with Lemmy, but the doctors in Berlin are recommending that he rests for another couple of weeks. We can't keep canceling show after show, it's too costly. Therefore we unfortunately have to cancel the entire tour."

Regarding Motörhead's plans for the immediate future, Mikkey said: "Our buses, trucks and trailers are rolling home this afternoon. We're going to focus on the coming album and our big European tour this fall."

According to Dee, a press release will soon be available with more information. Zumic will post the details as soon as they become available. In the meantime, Zumic stands with Lemmy.
