MOTÖRHEAD was forced to cancel tonight’s (Tuesday, November 8th,2011) planned concert at Bristol, England’s Colston Hall after the band’s mainman, Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister (bass, vocals), suffered an injury to his left hand and was unable to play.

The date is part of “The Wörld Is Yours” tour, which featured ANTI NOWHERE LEAGUE and UK SUBS supporting.

“Due to injury, MOTÖRHEAD have cancelled their Colston Hall show tonight. Watch this space for returns/new date info,” a message read on the Twitter feed for the venue. “We are working with Live Nation to try to reschedule… We’ll let you know when we know what will happen re: rescheduling/refunds.”

Remaining dates:

Nov. 11 – Norwich, UK – UEA
Nov. 12 – London, UK – Hammersmith Apollo
Nov. 14 – Newcastle, UK – O2 Academy
Nov. 15 – Glasgow, UK – O2 Academy
Nov. 17 – Nottingham, UK – Royal Centre
Nov. 18 – Manchester, UK- O2 Apollo

As previously reported, MOTÖRHEAD will release “The Wörld Is Ours Vol. 1 – Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else” on November 14 via Motörhead Music / UDR / EMI.

“The Wörld Is Ours Vol. 1 – Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else” gives you the complete set from the band’s supreme performance in Chile at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago on April 9, 2011, shot by Banger Films and Sam Dunn (“Iron Maiden Flight 666”, “Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage”). The DVD continues with some tasty morsels from New York’s Best Buy Theater and the Manchester Apollo.
For the Old Skoolers, get it on VINYL!

Other sources say “The following statement was issued via the venue’s Twitter feed: “Due to injury, Motorhead have canceled their Colston Hall show tonight. Watch this space for returns/new date info. We are working with Live Nation to try to reschedule… We’ll let you know when we know what will happen re: rescheduling/refunds.”

Motörhead have a batch of dates remaining on this tour through the U.K. The next scheduled date is Nov. 11 at the UEA in Norwich, U.K. The band plays the Hammersmith Apollo in London on Nov. 12. They wrap this run of U.K. dates at the O2 Apollo in Manchester on Nov. 18.

The extent of the Lemster’s injury has not been readily revealed, but we hope that he heals quickly. But then again, this is Lemmy. He’s a rock god and can probably regenerate a new hand!”
