Vince Neil hospitalized in Australia


Rockers Motley Crue cut short a gig in Australia on Sunday night as frontman Vince Neil was rushed to hospital.

The band is currently touring Down Under with KISS and Thin Lizzy, and they were playing a second show at Sydney's Allphones Arena on Sunday when Neil was taken ill.

The show was cut short and the singer was admitted to a local hospital to treat "internal pain."

Neil's bandmate Nikki Sixx explained the drama to fans in a post on Twitter, writing, "Sorry Sydney for a short set tonight but Vince had to be rushed to the hospital for internal pain. Will update you on his progress."

No more details about Neil's condition were known as WENN went to press.

Motley Crue wouldn't be playing anymore if the generations after them were doing their job of progressing music and fine arts instead of relying on plagiarism. It's pretty sad when the old men (these guys are in their 50's) can still kick your **** and the young people of today have next to nothing as far as actual talent goes even with the internet for self promotion. I'm so grateful to not be growing up now.
