Motley Crue’s Vince Neil Appears To Throw Punch at Fan During Solo Concert
Vince Neil has been hitting the road with his own backing band, performing a set filled with Motley Crue songs, solo material and a Led Zeppelin medley consisting of ‘Whole Lotta Love,’ ‘Heaven & Hell’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven.’ As Neil and his band begin to launch into ‘Kickstart My Heart,’ Neil’s vocals came to a halt so he could casually yell at a fan. It’s unclear as to why Neil screamed at and ultimately took a swing at the man in the front row, but the incident was captured on film by a fellow audience member and published by TMZ.
“Get the f— out of here!” Neil suggested to the fan. After waiting for roughly two seconds, Neil realized that his plea had fallen on deaf ears, which facilitated a punch that the fan was able to dodge. Although Neil’s fist (and mic) didn’t connect, the singer still managed to compose himself and declare “Still kickin’ ass” before smoothly transitioning back to the song.
Vince Neil’s tour is slated to resume on Dec. 15 in Coconut Creek, Fla., Check out his full itinerary below the video.
