Vince Neil Hospitalized During Motley Crue Performance
Vince Neil Says 'Skating with the Stars' Training Is 'Grueling'

Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil was hospitalized in Sydney on Sunday night (Mar. 10) after the 52-year-old singer had a kidney stone attack during the band's performance at Allphones Arena.

According to a Setlist.fm report, the veteran metal group performed a handful of songs during the Sydney show before Neil left the stage. Bassist Nikki Sixx reportedly told the crowd that the singer was in pain and had been taken to a nearby hospital.

Guitarist Mick Mars later confirmed that Neil was suffering from kidney stones and apologized for the shortened set on Twitter. "Sydney, my apologies for a short set this evening. Vince had an attack of kidney stones. He went straight from stage to the hospital," Mars wrote.

Mötley Crüe, currently co-headlining their tour with KISS, is scheduled to continue its trek through Australia on Tuesday night in Brisbane. "If there is a way to safely perform, [Neil] always does," band manager Allen Kovac told CNN. "In nearly 20 years of managing Motley Crue, I can't recall a show the band has canceled."
