Make-up Atlanta date to be announced.
Contrary to reports that he broke his leg, Motley Crue singer Vince Neil suffered a partial tear of a calf muscle five songs into a show Friday in Atlanta, according to the band's official Web site. The show had to be halted prematurely as Neil was taken to a hospital, but Motley Crue plans to hold a make-up concert in Atlanta on a date to be announced.
And while doctors have told Neil not to perform in the short term to allow the muscle to heal, he is planning to return to the stage tonight (Sept. 18) in Memphis.
"He will be able to perform, but can't really jump around until it heals," says Crue bassist Nikki Sixx. "Luckily, we have a few days off here and there for him to recover."
The band's Carnival of Sin reunion tour has been a huge success worldwide, and its North American portion will run through Oct. 16 in Sioux City, Iowa. After a month-long break, the band will return to the road for international dates through Dec. 10 in Perth Australia.
