INJURED MOTLEY CRUE SINGER BACK ON STAGE:

September 19, 2005

ATLANTA – Motley Crue rocker Vince Neil has returned to the stage after injuring himself at an Atlanta concert.

Band spokeswoman Hannah Kampf said Neil performed with no problems Sunday night in Memphis, Tenn., after tearing a calf muscle about five songs into a show Friday at Atlanta’s Philips Arena.

Police initially reported Neil fell off of the stage and broke his leg. But on the band’s Web site, Neil says he “felt something snap” in his calf muscle while on stage. He was treated at an Atlanta hospital and released.

The glam rock band, which formed in the 1980s, recently reunited after six years.
