More bad news coming out of the Motorhead world. The band have cleared out a month of festival shows from their upcoming calendar.
According to Loudwire, they have canceled appearances at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, FL (April 26-27), Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte, NC (May 3-4), Rock on the Range in Columbus, OH (May 16-18) and Rocklahoma in Pryor, OK (May 23-25). These and several other metal festivals across America in that time frame are being held under the banner of “World’s Loudest Month,” a partnership of AEG Live and Danny Wimmer Presents.
The festivals’ websites offer a generic “circumstances beyond our control” as the reason. Meanwhile, Motorhead have, so far, remained silent on the issue. However, their tour calendar still lists their April West Coast swing and a handful of European dates in the summer, so we’re hoping that this can be chalked down to a business conflict and not a return of Lemmy‘s health problems that caused Motorhead to cancel many shows in the past year, most recently last month’s European tour.
