Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has been hospitalized due to kidney stones.
E! News reports that the band was preforming in Sydney Sunday evening when Neil was forced to cut the performance short.
Allen Kovac, the bands manager, tells CNN, “Vince will be going into surgery to remove the kidney stones. He has been having problems for the last few days with kidney stones. He was treated at the hospital after the show."
Band members Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars took to Twitter to keep fans in loop as to what was going on with the 52-year-old health, and to also apologize for the performance being cut short.
“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,” Sixx wrote.

Next up for the group is in Brisbane, which his manager notes is still on saying that Neil “has played shows through a wide ranging list of injuries. If there is a way to safely perform, he always does.” He adds, “In nearly 20 years of managing Motley Crue, I can't recall a show the band has canceled."
The band promises to update fans as Neil’s progress is revealed.
