Nikki Sixx Addresses Vince Neil’s Injury And Possibility Of Continuing Mötley Crüe Tour
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx talked about the unfortunate accident the band’s frontman Vince Neil experienced and reflected on the possibility of him performing on Mötley Crüe’s upcoming tour during his recent interview with Billboard.
Vince Neil and his solo band performed at the Monsters on the Mountain festival, which also consisted of many different bands and artists such as Night Ranger, Tesla, Great White, and John Corabi on October 15, 2021, in Tennessee. Mötley Crüe fans were excited to see Neil’s progress after he had been through hard times due to his voice.
However, Neil’s performance was interrupted when the singer fell down the stage and broke his ribs during his concert. His bandmate explained the situation to the audience and said that he couldn’t breathe but he wanted to continue. Eddie Trunk stated he was taken to the hospital and getting care and X-Rays and then Mötley Crüe announced that Neil was at home and resting.
Recently, Nikki Sixx shared his ideas about Neil’s accident and current health status. He highlighted that Vince was lucky that he was playing rhythm guitar so he couldn’t fall on his head. He confronted the worried fans saying that the frontman will recover in a very short time and be ready to go back to the stage for Mötley Crüe Stadium Tour in 2022.
Sixx said in his interview that:
“Without that, it’s all completely black, so you can walk forward-thinking there’s still stage there and fall off, I’ve done that myself; Vince and I were laughing about one time we both fell off the stage at the same show. However he was really lucky; He said if it wasn’t a song that he was playing rhythm guitar on it could’ve been his head, which would’ve been a worse injury.
The guitar broke his fall but he’ll heal up and we’ll be ready to go on tour in June. This tour’s been postponed twice; We just didn’t have enough information at the time, with protocols and all, to go and do a stadium tour. We’re all feeling good about it now, and we can’t wait, man.”
Mötley Crüe’s Stadium Tour, which was postponed in 2020, will begin on June 16, 2022, in Atlanta and end on September 7, 2022, in San Fransico. Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts will join them during their tour.
