Lemmy won’t miss next show say Motorhead

Motorhead have vowed that frontman Lemmy will be back in action as planned tomorrow night after being floored with a stomach bug.

The band were forced to call off their appearance in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at the weekend, after the 69-year-old was taken to hospital.

Their set was covered by a jam band consisting of Motorhead men Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee and guests.

The band say in a statement: “Lemmy is already feeling much better and ready to continue the South America dates. Next stop Curitiba!

“Lemmy regrets this mishap very much and is looking forward to making it up to all the fans.”

Motorhead return to the UK to play this year’s Glastonbury festival on July 24-28. They’ll release their 22nd album this autumn. Earlier this month Lemmy told how helping a fan recover from a coma was an experience worth his “whole career.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
