Motorhead Resume Tour With Complete Show in St. Louis

After taking a few days off to let Lemmy Kilmister recuperate from his recent lung infection, Motörhead are back in fighting shape — and back on the road.

Their St. Louis show on Sept. 8 was evidently a rousing return to action for the group, which celebrated by thanking the fans who turned out with a Facebook post that reads, “St.Louis!!!! St.Louis St.Louis SAINT LOOOOUUUIIISSSS!!!!!! How LOVELY it was for Motörhead to kick every single one of your asses tonight eh?!!!!!!!” A venue spokesperson assures Ultimate Classic Rock that “good times were had by all.”

The band’s current North American tour suffered through a few cancellations after its frontman experienced difficulty breathing during a Salt Lake City stop and was unable to make it through a subsequent performance, which was blamed on high altitude. The group’s Austin show was scuttled two songs in, with a clearly frustrated Lemmy telling the crowd, “I can’t do it.

But a lung infection couldn’t keep one of rock’s most indestructible legends down for long, and a few days of rest were apparently all it took for Lemmy to rebound from the latest in a series of troublesome health issues that have repeatedly complicated Motörhead’s touring efforts in recent years — and, by his own admission, brought him close to death.

We’ll all be keeping our fingers crossed for the remainder of the tour, which is scheduled to continue for most of the rest of September before concluding in Pompano Beach, Fla., on Sept. 26. Following that, the group plans to set sail on its Motörhead Cruise starting Sept. 28 before beginning a lengthy series of European dates in November.
