Motley Crue’s Vince Neil Rushed To Hospital In Australia
March 10, 2013
Motley Crue were forced to prematurely end their show last night at Sydney, Australia’s All Phones Arena when singer Vince Neil was rushed to hospital with an attack of kidney stones. The Crue have been touring Australia with KISS and Thin Lizzy — no word yet on if Neil’s illness will affect the remaining tour dates.
Bassist Nikki Sixx took to Twitter to apologize for the shortened set by saying, “Sorry Sydney for a short set tonight but Vince had to be rushed to the hospital for internal pain. Will update you on his progress.”
Guitarist Mick Mars continued, “Sydney, my apologies for a short set this evening. Vince had an attack of kidney stones. He went straight from stage to the hospital.”
Upon the completion of their Australian tour Motley Crue plan to invade Canada, which marks the most expansive run of Canada in the band’ history. The tour will commence this spring with a total of 18 show dates, kicking off on April 20th on the West Coast, and running through May 14th when the band completes the tour in the nation’s capital.
Earlier in the week Sixx told TheMusic.com.au‘s about the band’s plans to go out on a high.
“I wanna finish our movie (adaptation of Motley Crue’s New York Times bestselling collaborative autobiography The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band) and put out a new album,” Sixx revealed before adding they will also release a soundtrack to the movie and then embark on “a farewell tour”. “We’ll be back in Australia and, ah, that’ll be it,” he said. “I can honourably say, ‘We did it our way and we’re never coming back’.”
