Mötley Crüe vocalist Vince Neil broke his ribs after falling off of the stage and directly onto the concrete ground during a performance on October 15th (see video below).

Video shows the 60-year-old rocker walking to the front of the stage while performing with his band at Monsters On The Mountain Fest in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

Neil was encouraging the crowd to clap along when he suddenly fell and dropped out of the camera’s view almost instantly.

Apparently there was a small gap between the speaker and the stage that Neil didn’t notice, according to TMZ.

“The truth is Vince fell and broke ribs when he fell,” the singer’s bassist, Dana Strum, told the crowd a few moments later, adding that he “can’t breathe” and will be “dealt with medically.”

Despite the scary accident, the band continued to play their cover of Mötley Crüe’s Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away) as Neil’s team helped him get up and backstage. They went on to finish the set with guitarist Jeff Blando taking over lead vocals in place of Neil.

Neil is scheduled to reunite with Mötley Crüe for a massive stadium tour in 2022. It’s unclear how long Neil will need to recover from the injury, but reports say it shouldn’t take more than two months for broken ribs to heal.

The upcoming Stadium Tour will be the first time Neil has performed with Mötley Crüe since 2015.

  1. Vince will heal and recover , not only are his ribs broken , part of his ego is probably broken as well , I’m sure he feels a little bit of embarrassment, some anger , etc. Hopefully this accident lights a fire in vince to really get healthy get himself together, vince made a ridiculous amount of money over the years , and lately he seems like he doesn’t care , and is just going through the rock star motions, I’m not a fan of his or crue other than a few tunes , but I hope vince can come out of this incident fired up and ready to get himself together ~

  2. Man I spit the starbucks on the screen again. Thx Vince I needed a good laugh. It was funny to see him just disappear , im sure he was completely numb when it happened.
