Motorhead pulls out of Germany's With Full Force festivalMotorhead has canceled its June 28 performance at this year's edition of the With Full Force festival, set to take place at Flugplatz Roitzschjora in LÃ¶bnitz, Germany (near Leipzig). This marks the third concert the band has scrapped this week after the band's frontman Lemmy Kilmister suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel). The news of Lemmy's latest medical issue followed reports that he was also recently fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems.
A message on Lemmy's Facebook page downplayed his latest medical issues, stating: "We are happy to announce that despite rumors to the contrary, Lemmy is alive, breathing, talking, fucking, drinking, eating, reading and will be back to playing shows shortly.
"As reported, he did undergo a Motor-pit-stop for some medical maintenance this past spring, and the timing of his recent illness was unfortunate in that it came so soon after that.
"Lemmy & Co believe in the 'keep calm and carry on' way of thinking. Fans can anticipate more Motorhead live action this summer, as well as the most exciting Motorhead in years, 'Aftershock', this fall."
