Motley Crue‘s Sunday night (March 10) concert in Sydney, Australia was cut short when singer Vince Neil was rushed to the hospital for what is being described as an attack of kidney stones.

Bassist Nikki Sixx reported the news on Twitter, stating, “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.” (Remember, Sydney is 15 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time.)

According to, Motley Crue ended their Sydney performance after nine songs, five less than they have played at previous shows on this Australian tour, which finds them teamed up once again with Kiss.

Guitarist Mick Mars explained the situation a bit further, again 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.”

We obviously wish Mr. Neil a speedy recovery, and we will keep you posted as we find updates on his condition.
