Motley Crue Frontman Vince Neil Hospitalized During Australian Concert
Motley Crue frontman and one-time VH1 reality star Vince Neil was hospitalized during a concert in Australia.
Is there a Dr. Feelgood in the house?
While it was initially unclear what was ailing the singer, who complained of extreme internal pain, apparently Neil was suffering a severe kidney stone attack.
Bassist Nikki Sixx announced Neil’s health issues on Twitter from Down Under.
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.

Guitarist Mick Mars added:
Sydney, my apologies for a short set this evening. Vince had an attack of kidney stones. He went straight from stage to the hospital.

Setlist.fm reports that the band cut their 14-song set down to nine, not out of laziness, but out of necessity — Neil was in bad shape. Here’s hoping he has a quick recovery.
