Motörhead Cancel Show After Guitarist Phil Campbell Hospitalized
Published Nov 27, 2015This summer, health concerns resulted in hard rock gods Motörhead cutting a couple of shows short. Now, they've called off yet another gig, this time in Berlin.
While prior cancellations were due to the health of frontman Lemmy Kilmister, this latest cancellation is due to guitarist Phil Campbell. It's not clear exactly what happened, but the band posted this message on Facebook:
With great regret, Motörhead have to cancel the sold out show in Berlin today, November 27th. Our brother, guitarist Phil Campbell suddenly required hospitalization. He will be better soon but there is no choice other than to cancel our show in Berlin.
We all wish Phil a speedy recovery,
Lemmy, Mikkey and the Motörhead family.
Please check back, we will get you all information as soon as we have it.
Motörhead are currently on tour in Europe. There's currently no word as to whether Campbell's health will result in any further cancellations; as it stands, they're currently due to return to the stage tomorrow (November 28) in Hamburg.
A few months ago, Motörhead cut shows short due to Lemmy's breathing difficulties. Earlier this month, former drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor passed away.
