Video: MÖTLEY CRÜE Singer VINCE NEIL Breaks Ribs In Stage Fall

Vince Neil breaks his ribs after falling from stage.

MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil fell off the stage during his solo performance last night (Friday, October 15) at the Monsters On The Mountain festival at LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, causing the vocalist to break his ribs.

According to Metal Sludge, the accident took place early into Vince’s set, while performing MÖTLEY CRÜE’s “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)”. In fan-filmed video seen below, Vince can be seen getting the crowd into the spirit of the tune while standing very close to the edge of the stage. Vince then seems to take a step or two forward before losing his grounding and falling off.

A short time later, bassist Dana Strum addressed the crowd about the extent of Neil’s injuries, saying: “The truth is Vince fell and broke ribs when he fell. 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.”

Monsters On The Mountain event co-host Eddie Trunk later tweeted that Neil is “at hospital now getting care & X Rays.”

Vince’s band actually finished their set however, with guitarist Jeff Blando taking over lead vocals.
