Motorhead launch cruise festival called Motorboat
Motorhead have launched their own cruise festival called Motorboat.

The event will take place this autumn on a cruise ship which will visit Miami, Key West and the Mexican island of Cozumel. Exact dates and line-up have not yet been revealed, but Motorhead are expected to play. They have dubbed the event "the loudest boat party in the world". For more information, visit Facebook/motorheadcruise.

The boat party follows similar events hosted by Weezer, R Kelly and the Coachella festival. Despite cancelling their European tour twice due to the ongoing health problems of frontman Lemmy, Motorhead are still set to play next month's Coachella in California.

Regarding the cancelled dates, an official statement on the band’s website read: "Many concerted, diligent and focused efforts were made by founding member, and international icon, Lemmy Kilmister to deal with a range of health issues relating to diabetes. While there has been undoubted progress, Lemmy and the band were advised by doctors that it was still too soon to resume full touring activities, and so for the good of the future, the band and Lemmy reluctantly agreed to cancel."

The 68-year-old frontman famed for his rock'n'roll lifestyle also recently spoke out about his health, stating that getting a pacemaker fitted had made him feel "really down". Speaking after the operation, which was performed after the rock icon was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat earlier last year, Lemmy stated that the procedure was a case of him "paying for the good times, I suppose." He added: "It's a mixture of all the things I ever did — and I did plenty".

Motorhead have released 21 albums in their 39-year career span so far, spawning hits such as 'Ace of Spades', 'Killed By Death' and 'Overkill'. Their most recent effort, meanwhile, was 2013's 'Aftershock', which was written after a three-year break and praised for its "back to basics" approach.
