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.
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 wonder why "The exact details surrounding Neil's injury remain a mystery."
Was Vince drugging or just a klutz?
It would be interesting to know.
