Metal band Motörhead has canceled their stop in San Antonio this week, as frontman Lemmy Kilmister continues to recover from an altitude illness.
According to Rolling Stone, the frontman stopped mid-show in Austin because of his illness. After three songs he reportedly told the audience, “I can’t do it.” The band has been on tour in support of their 22nd studio album Bad Magic since June and most recently canceled their August 27th date in Salt Lake City due to the same reason.
“As you might have heard, Motörhead again had to abbreviate a performance due to Lemmy not feeling well,” a statement on the band’s Facebook page reads. “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’s tour will continue on till the end of the month when they embark on their Motörhead’s Motorboat Cruise sailing out of Miami. No word on if the canceled show will be rescheduled.
