Motley Crue front man Vince Neil was rushed to the hospital this weekend and underwent surgery after cutting short a concert in Australia due to internal pain.
It was discovered the Neil was suffering from kidney stones and had to have surgery to remove them. Both Neil and Motley bassist Nikki Sixx posted messages online to update fans about what happened.
The first message came from Sixx who told fans via Twitter, "Sorry for a short set but Vince had to be rushed to the hospital for internal pain. Will update you on his progress."
Yesterday, Neil told fans via Facebook, "Just out of surgery. Spent night in hospital probably have to again tonight. Thank you all for the kind words and prayers. Doc says I should have a full recovery and be back onstage for the Brisbane show tomorrow. Thanks to my band mates and crew for your support!"
A concert business source confirms that The Rolling Stones are planning 18 concerts in North America this year.
Another source says, "May 2nd is the launch day. I've heard West Coast cities – L.A. and Seattle. But I think they're going to do some back East as well."
It would be the band's first major tour since 2005-2007's A Bigger Bang.
