MOTORHEAD have announced a trio of rescheduled tour dates, after the band were forced to cancel UK Christmas shows when mainman LEMMY was hospitalised in ITALY due to “extreme exhaustion”.
As previously revealed on NME.COM, three UK dates, due to start yesterday evening (December 19) at the London Forum were pulled after Lemmy ended up in hospital following a gruelling tour schedule of 39 shows in 48 days across the world.
His condition became so bad in mainland Europe that Motorhead were forced to pull some dates in Germany. On arrival in Italy soon after, Lemmy’s condition deteriorated further and he was admitted to hospital overnight. He was told by doctors to spend four weeks completely resting to ensure a full recovery.
Now the shows have been rescheduled for May. The new dates are at:
Manchester Apollo (May 21)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (22)
London Forum (23)
Original tickets are valid for the new dates, or they can be returned for a refund at the point of purchase. Tickets for the new shows, priced #15, are on sale now.
