With broken foot, Vince Neil says Motley Crue tour 'must go on'


Despite his broken foot, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has vowed to press on with the remaining dates on his band's joint tour with Kiss. The rocker sustained the injury while performing in Ohio on Wednesday night, but he hopped back on the tour bus after the gig and headed to Toronto, where he had an X-ray on Thursday.

He has been fitted with a cast and given crutches to help him walk, and he took to his Twitter page shortly after receiving medical treatment to assure fans he will play through the pain and continue with the Toronto show on Thursday.

Bing: Did Vince Neil yell at valet?

Apologizing for what will be a limited performance, Neil writes, "To my fans - Thnxs 4 ur support. I have 2 fractured bones. The show must go on!! I'm sorry I won't be able to give you the show you deserve!"

Bandmate Nikki Sixx has also reached out to followers. The bassist tweets, "Yes we are playing tonight (and the rest of the tour) even though @TheVinceNeil has two broken bones in his foot. He is a trooper."

The exact details surrounding Neil's injury remain a mystery.

I was at the concert last night where he broke his ankle.  There was a step down on the stage and he simply missed it.  He continued on with the show, just like nothing had happened....and what a hell of a show it was!

I wonder why "The exact details surrounding Neil's injury remain a mystery."


Was Vince drugging or just a klutz?


Maybe both?


It would be interesting to know.

Maybe in his down time he can learn the lyrics to his songs.

He probably tripped over some empty liquor bottles.

Mike has a good point. Broken bones aren't fun no matter what the situation, but sometimes these entertainers push the old "the show must go on" schtick like they are the only ones who ever have to press on in the face of difficulty! So do we all sometimes. Motley are lucky to have audiences and core fan bases still interested enough to come see them, like Leppard, Journey and the rest of that lot from the 80's.
