Lemmy Kilmister’s ongoing health issues have once again caused Motorhead to cancel a major appearance.
The band pulled out of Brazil’s Monsters of Rock Festival on Saturday a few hours before taking the stage after Lemmy became ill with gastric distress and dehydration. They were playing on a bill that also included Judas Priest and Black Sabbath.
Although nothing has been posted on their official or Facebook pages, Phil Campbell blamed it on food poisoning on Twitter:
“To bad we couldn’t perform yesterday at Monsters Of Rock due to Lemmy’s food poisoning but he is getting better, we see you all in Curitiba,” he posted.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Lemmy was taken to local hospital to be examined.
Kilmister, 69, has had various medical, many related to diabetes, over the last two years. In 2013, he had a blood clot and a pacemaker implanted which led to the cancellation of a number of shows. Additional health problems related to the clot forced the cancellation of many of their 2014 shows.
