Motorhead played a shortened set at this year's edition of the Wacken Open Air festival, and front man Lemmy has recently been going through health issues that caused the cancellation of several shows.

Now the organizers of the Wacken festival have issued the following statement about the performance:

"Motörhead rocked the Black Stage for more than 30 minutes and Lemmy gave everything he´s got to play an amazing live show.

"He's keeping well - but the temperatures and circumstances lead to the point that continuing the show would have lead to a loss of quality.

"We are very happy and proud that Phil, Mikkey, and particularly Mr. Rock n Roll himself, Lemmy Kilmister, played W:O:A 2013 and that they did everything humanly possible to play this gig. Thank you so much, guys!"
