Motörhead fans, you can relax. Despite rumblings of a possible tour cancellation following the health scares of frontman Lemmy Kilmister, who suffered a hematoma this summer, and last week’s announcement that the band’s upcoming UK/European run would be postponed, Motörhead has officially confirmed that the tour will go on.

Sources close to the band have revealed that Kilmister’s health is “not good;” however, it seems for the time being that Motörhead will continue on with all of the year’s remaining commitments. Ticket holders have been advised to hold on to their tickets, which will be honored at the re-scheduled dates.
