The bill seemed to good to be true – Motorhead, The Misfits, Airbourne, Valient Thorr, and Year Long Disaster – and a recent announcement from Airbourne via their MySpace page backs that thought up.
“After 200+ shows this year, Joel’s suffering from strained vocal chords and is being forced under doctor’s orders to cancel the current USA dates with Motorhead. All that is needed is a couple of weeks rest & then the band will be back on the Road in Japan this Oct and then taking on a UK / Europe tour for the third time in ten months. The band is gutted that they can not play these shows with Motorhead & hope to see you all at a show soon.”
This blows as that was the primary reason I was going to the show in Columbus next Sunday night. What this means, Bryan (if you’re reading this), is that my plus one is probably now available for you to use since the person going with me was only going to see Airbourne.
Here are the remaining dates on the Motorhead tour, sans Airbourne.
