Atlanta's 11Alive is reporting that MÖTLEY CRÜE lead singer Vince Neil broke his knee about 45 minutes into a Friday night (Sept. 16) concert at Philips Arena. He is listed in good condition. [Watch the 11Alive video report on the incident at this location.]
One fan told 11Alive's Blair Meeks that it appeared Neil twisted his ankle.
"They were just performing, doing one of their songs when he just twisted his knee, it looked like, and he just went to the ground," the fan said.
"He started crawling off the stage and they kinda blew up smoke to kind of cover it, and the band kept playing, and they went to an intermission, or so you thought. Then, the rest of band — Tommy, Nikki and Mick — and came back out and said [Neil] broke his knee and the show was canceled," she said.
Although the sudden cancellation of the concert left a little upset and potentially rowdy, Atlanta police managed to get everyone out of the arena in an orderly fashion.
Ticket-holders are advised to hold on to their ticket stubs for word of a refund or possibly rescheduled concert.
