MÖTLEY CRÜE Singer VINCE NEIL Back On Stage After Atlanta Injury

The Associated Press is reporting that MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil has returned to the stage after injuring himself Friday night (Sept. 16) at an Atlanta concert.

Band spokeswoman Hannah Kampf said Neil performed with no problems Sunday night in Memphis, Tenn. after tearing a calf muscle about five songs into a show at Atlanta's Philips Arena.

Atlanta police initially reported Neil fell off of the stage and broke his leg. But on the band's web site, Neil says he "felt something snap" in his calf muscle while on stage. He was treated and released from an Atlanta hospital on Saturday.

Band members said they intend to return to Atlanta for a makeup show. Kampf said no date for the makeup show has been set.
