The 'Ace of Spades' hitmakers have called off shows in Berlin and Hamburg after guitarist Phil Campbell was hospitalised

Motorhead have cancelled a second show after their lead guitarist was hospitalised.

The rockers took to their official Twitter account to reveal their gig in Hamburg, Germany, has been rescheduled after Phil Campbell was admitted to hospital.

They wrote: "Hamburg show is off today, rescheduled to December 9 at Sporthalle. See you all there. Thank you for all the well wishes for @MotorheadPhil"

It comes after the group called off their gig in the German capital, Berlin, when Phil fell ill.

They tweeted: "Our brother, Phil Campbell suddenly required hospital. He will be better soon. There is no choice other than to cancel our show in Berlin"

Earlier this month, the 'Ace of Spades' hitmakers - who are also made up of Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister and Mikkey Dee - cancelled a gig in Paris just days after the terror attacks in the French capital.

They wrote on Twitter: "Due to the serious situation in Paris we have to postpone our gig until January. We are rescheduling and will give details ASAP. #Paris"

Foo Fighters and U2 also called off gigs in the city following the atrocity.
