Motley Crue singer Vince Neil accidentally stepped off stage during a concert on Friday and broke his ribs.

Neil was only a few songs into his set when he stepped to the edge of the stage and tumbled four feet onto the cement, TMZ reported.

Neil was one of the headliner acts for the three-day music festival.

In the video footage from the performance, Neil, 60, can be seen clapping near the edge of the stage with his guitar strapped around him before he stumbles off the stage.

Neil’s bass player Dana Strum, told the crowd at the Mountain music festival about Neil’s injury.

“The truth is, Vince fell and broke ribs when he fell,” Strum announced. “He can’t breathe and he’s going to get dealt with medically.”

“The bassist added, “He was willing to stick it out and tough it out when the people back here were telling him “Don’t do it., Let’s have one good round of applause, please, for this guy.”
