Mötley Crüe singer headlines Monster on the Mountain Festival
Friday night (Oct. 15) Vince Neil was performing at the Monster on the Mountain Festival. Notably, he was performing with his band, not Mötley Crüe. The 80’s band hasn’t performed together in more than six years.
This festival takes place in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. According to their website, the festival is a “3 Day Rock Experience In The Smoky Mountains.” This year’s festival takes place October 15-17.
In addition to Vince Neil, this year’s featured performers include:
- Night Ranger
- Kingdom Come
- Heavens Edge
- Native Sons
- John Corabi
- Ben Woods
- Mark Evans
Unfortunately, Vince Neil took a tumble on Day 1 of the festival. TMZ reports on all of the details. According to the outlet, Neil was on the edge of the stage when he fell 4 feet onto the cement below. The outlet reports that there was a gap between the speaker and the stage.
Vince Neil hospitalized after a fall
TMZ further suggests that the rocker “was clearly in pain” and his crew “thought he had broken some ribs.” With the help of a roadie and security guard, Vince Neil limps away. Eventually, Vince was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
At the time of this writing, we don’t know the prognosis. However, TMZ reports that x-rays were taken, Neil is “alert and should be okay.” Later, AP News confirms that the 60-year-old rocker did break ribs.
Interestingly enough, the show went on after Vince Neil fell off the stage. His guitarist, Jeff Blando, just took over lead vocals. AP News reports that Blando gave an update on Vince Neil’s condition.
The truth is, Vince fell and broke ribs when he fell. Now that sucks for us and him. He was so excited to be here. He lives in Tennessee.”
The event organizer, Eddie Trunk takes to his Twitter to send well wishes to Vince Neil. He also says that he will tweet “More when I hear.”
