Motörhead has canceled a few dates on their European tour following guitarist Phil Campbell’s hospitalization, the band announced on social media this week. They canceled shows two shows in Germany and one in Denmark.

On November 27, the band announced via their Facebook page that Campbell had “suddenly required hospitalization” and that they would be canceling their sold out show in Berlin that night. Although the post was optimistic about a speedy recovery for Campbell, the band was been forced to cancel their show the following day in Hamburg, and their show Monday in Aarhaus.


The band tweeted that the Hamburg show, originally scheduled for Nov. 28, will be rescheduled for Dec. 9.

According to the band’s rep, Motörhead, who are touring their recent album Bad Magic, will continue the run in Gothenburg, Sweden Tuesday night.
