Motorhead have canceled all European tour dates until next year in a bid to allow frontman Lemmy to fully recover from ongoing health issues.
The 76 year-old singer has been off the road since undergoing heart surgery and suffering a "severe hematoma" earlier this year, prompting the band to scrap a number of concerts.
Lemmy tried to return to the stage at a music festival in Germany back in August but had to cut the set short due to being too weak to continue.
Now, the Ace of Spades rockers have decided to cancel all dates until February so he has time to return to full fitness.
A statement from the musician on the band's site reads, "We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health.
"Don't worry, I'm not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever."
Motorhead had performances scheduled in Britain, Switzerland, Belgium and France throughout November.
