Representatives for Neil didn't immediately respond to EW's request for confirmation but Mötley Crüe confirmed Neil's condition in a Twitter post on Sunday, writing "Vince is back home and resting after breaking a few ribs on Friday night" and sending support and love to their fellow bandmate for a quick recovery.

Neil one of the headliner acts for the three-day music festival. Earlier this year, he suffered another setback on the stage when he was headlining the Boone River Valley Festival in Iowa with his solo band during his first post-pandemic show. Neil's voice gave out on the band's 14th song, causing him to abruptly leave the stage mid-show.
