It’s been a rough few days for Vince Neil & Motley Crue fans globally.
MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil suffered a serious injury when he fell off the stage during his solo band’s performance at the Monsters On The Mountain festival at LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Earlier today, it was revealed by MOTLEY CRUE social media page that Vince Neil is back home and resting after breaking a few ribs on Friday night.
Vince will take next few weeks to recover from the incident. It’s not known whether he has any shows lined up but chances are they may get cancelled due to this.
A longtime Motley Crue fan Larry Harris shared a personal experience of this incident on Motley Crue Facebook group.
Here’s what he said:
“I was standing less than 6 feet away from where Vince Neil took that fall last night. Seen so many people laugh and act like he deserved it. Very sad! My 15-year-old daughter was with me who loves Motley Crue so as we witnessed him being helped up and backstage, my daughter was almost in tears. It was scary to see how much pain he was in and looking completely out of it. I know many think he was drunk or out of it to take the fall. I will say he was putting on one of his better performances in years so it was obvious he was trying for his fans.
“I will also say it was a horrible stage setup by Monsters on the Mountain with an accident waiting to happen. They had this small gap in front of the stage where these risers with lights on it. Talking to a band that played earlier on the same stage told us that there was some white tape marking before the gap but with the lights in your eyes, it would be so easy to miss it and think the stage extends out to the risers and the gap being so dark it blends with the stage. He fell right between the gap banging his ribs into it. Really don’t think this was a singer under the influence but a singer who made a very honest misjudgment due to a poor setup. Here’s a picture of Vince about 2 minutes before the fall.”
Our love and best wishes for a speedy recovery and ready to rock in ‘22!! 🖤🤘
