MOTLEY CRUE singer Vince Neil suffered a serious injury when he fell off the stage during his solo band’s performance earlier tonight (Friday, October 15) on Monsters on the mountain festival at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
According to Metal Sludge, the incident happened early in the set – while the group was performing “Don’t Go Away Mad”, a CRÜE classic that has been an integral part of the singer’s solo shows. In the fan-filmed video of the episode, which is available below, Vince can be seen encouraging the crowd to clap at the end of the song as he takes a few steps toward the front left side of the stage before losing his footing and falling off.
Shortly afterwards, bassist Dana Strum addressed the volume on the extent of Neil‘s injuries and said: “The truth is Vince fell and broke his ribs as he fell. He cannot breathe and he is being treated medically. He was so excited to be here. He lives in Tennessee. But he was willing to stick it out and harden it when the people in here said to him ‘Do not do it.’ Let’s get a good round of applause, thanks to this guy. “
According to sources cited by Metal slam, Neil was driven away in an ambulance. Monsters on the mountain event co-host Eddie Trunk later tweeted it Neil is “in the hospital now getting care and X-rays.”
Vince‘s band reportedly ended its Monsters on the mountain set, with guitarist Jeff Soft takes over main votes.
Last month, Vince revealed that he was trying a new tinting machine in an apparent effort to get in shape for MOTLEY CRUEis coming “Stadium”. The singer said he used Emsculpt Neo, a revolutionary new treatment that supposedly builds muscle and reduces fat using both radio frequency and high intensity electromagnetic energies.
Four months ago, Neil made headlines as he struggled to complete his solo concert at Boone Iowa River Valley Festival and Boone. Based on fan-filmed video footage of the May 29 concert that was released on Youtube, the 60-year-old rocker, who had not performed for more than a year and a half due to the COVID-19 pandemic, began to lose the voice of several songs in his set, which consisted exclusively of CRÜE classics and cover songs previously recorded by the band.
MOTLEY CRUE‘s “Stadium” with DEF LEPPARD, MARRIED and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS was originally scheduled to take place last summer, but ended up being pushed back to 2021 and then to 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
That explains why I lost track of him in this video. I apparently caught the drop at the end of this clip. Totally agree that he looked great and sang great. Hope the x-rays are clear and you jump back quickly @thevinceneil pic.twitter.com/jfWT6c3rVb
