Vince Neil Recovering From Kidney Stone Surgery
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. The Motley Crue singer ended up undergoing surgery to remove kidney stones and should be ready to resume the tour with KISS and Thin Lizzy in Brisbane on Tuesday night.
“Just out of surgery,” explained Neil. “Spent night in hospital probably have to again tonight. Thank you all for the kind words and prayers. Doc says I should have a full recovery and be back onstage for the Brisbane show tomorrow. Thanks to my bandmates and crew for your support!”
“As many have heard we had to cut our set short by 4 songs last night due to Vince be in severe pain on stage,” stated bassist Nikki Sixx. “He was doubled over on his dressing room floor 5 minutes till show time and was told by the promoter to not even play but Vince said he couldn’t do that to the fans. I’ve seen Vinnie go onstage with broken bones, his voice completely blown out and torn ligaments but he never ever cancels… just like an athlete you sometimes have to play through the pain but last night it became to excruciating.”
“I was texting with Vince most of the night last night as he was just waiting for the doctor to come back with the test results,” continued Sixx. “This morning we found out he had to be admitted into surgery to remove kidney stones. He just got out 5 minutes ago and the doctors said everything went well in the operating room. I am going to the hospital to see him before I head to Brisbane. Will update you more later.”
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’.”
