Motörhead Ended Up Cancelling Their Denver Show, Too
This past Thursday, Motörhead had to cut a performance in Salt Lake City short after just four songs, because Lemmy was suffering from shortness of breath. Although Lemmy has had a lot of health problems over the past few years, the band insisted this particular incident was the result of SLC’s high altitude/thin air… which wasn’t entirely reassuring, ’cause the band was scheduled to play this past weekend’s Riot Fest in Denver, which is 1,100 feet higher above sea level than SLC. So fans worried he might not fare so well at that show, either.
As it turns out, though, the band decided not to even risk it:
This is (obviously) a bummer in a lot of ways, not least of which is this: it may mean that Motörhead never again play Denver, SLC, or any other high-altitude location. I mean, there’s no reason to believe this was just a temporary issue, right? I would, of course, love to be wrong, but I fear fans from such locales may have to do some traveling if they ever hope to see Lemmy and company perform again.
