According to Loudwire, the singer performed at this year's Monsters on the Mountain Festival held in Pigeon Force, Tennessee.
While singing the song "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)," Neil took a misstep and tumbled four feet into the floor cement. The show was not cut off as remaining members- Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, and Tommy Lee- carried on to perform for the rest of the evening.
After the accident, Danna Strum took to stage to announce that there was "bad news." "I'm gonna tell the truth, the truth is Vince Neil broke ribs when he fell. He can't breath, and he's gonna get dealt with medically," he said. (watch the full video below)

The guitarist added, "that sucks for us and him, he was so excited to be here, he lives in Tennessee."
Rock radio personality Eddie Trunk also took to Twitter to share what happened, "Vince had been moving & singing great before the accident. He's at hospital now getting care & X Rays. More when I hear. Get well VN!"
Before the accident, Neil was due to perform with "Mötley Crüe" on their Stadium tour, which was already postponed twice.
In August, he retook the stage after a performance in May, where he walked off the stage after his voice gave out.
Neil performed several songs at the time; however, during the 14th song, he gave up while singing the track "Girls, Girls, Girls." He later apologized to the crowd saying, "I'm sorry, you guys. It's been a long time playin'. My f***** voice is we love you and we hope to see you next time, man. Thank you" (via the outlet mentioned above)
