Vince Neil is a veteran performer, but everyone has an off night. Neil recently scared fans when he lost his footing on stage and fell off. That accident resulted in a trip to the hospital.
TMZ reports that Neil tumbled off stage during a concert on Friday night in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This was a solo show and not a Mötley Crüe gig. In fact, he hasn’t performed with Mötley Crüe since 2015.
After falling off stage, Vince Neil was rushed to a hospital via an ambulance. He was only a few songs into his set as well. Obviously, falling 4 feet to the concrete floor was not on the setlist.
There was a small gap between the speaker and the stage, and Vince Neil didn’t notice it. So, the famous rocker tripped and fell. He was in a lot of pain and his crew feared that he broke some ribs. His roadie and a security guy helped him to his feet and then Vince Neil limped off.
The 60-year-old was then taken to the hospital where he had X-rays conducted. At this time we are unsure what the prognosis is, but he certainly suffered quite a tumble.
It was also reported that Vince Neil was sober at the time of this accident. We’re sending out our best to Neil from everyone here at Thirsty.
