Vince Neil Rushed To Hospital After Falling Off Stage & Breaking Ribs, Mötley Crüe Shares Update

Vince Neil is recovering after taking a nasty spill off the stage during a Friday night performance in Pigeon Ford, Tennessee.

TMZ reported that the Mötley Crüe singer was performing a solo show during the Monster on the Mountain rock festival when he stepped to the edge of the stage and lost his footing, falling about four feet to the concrete below.

Video of the incident showed Neil clapping as he walked to the lip of the stage, and then suddenly crashing down.

“He was clearly in pain… his crew thought he had broken some ribs. His roadie and a security guy helped him get to his feet, and Vince limped away,” TMZ recounted, adding that the 60-year-old rocker was taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance.

“The truth is Vince fell and broke ribs when he fell,” Dana Strum, bass player in Neil’s band, told the crowd. “He can’t breathe and he’s gonna get dealt with medically. He was so excited to be here. He lives in Tennessee. But he was willing to stick it out and tough it out when the people back here were telling him ‘Don’t do it.’ Let’s have one good round of applause, please, for this guy.”

SiriusXM metal deejay Eddie Trunk attended the show, and offered an update on Neil’s condition via Twitter.

Mötley Crüe has since confirmed the star is “back home and resting after breaking a few ribs.”
