Motley Crue Guitarist Mick Mars Offers Update After Canadian Concert Attack
Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars has signed online to alert fans that he’s okay after being knocked to the ground mid-performance by a concertgoer who rushed the stage in Saskatchewan, Canada Saturday night (May 4).
However, the rocker says there is a member of their crew who wasn’t as lucky. The crewman suffered an injury in the ensuing melee with the man who knocked over Mars as the audience member was en route to approaching Crue singer Vince Neil.
Mars tweeted the following message about the incident:
Thank all of you for your concerns about me being knocked down last night I’m alright nothing broken. My body guard Rhyno got 2 busted ribs

After security wrestled the offending audience member to the ground, drummer Tommy Lee could be heard cursing the man as he was hauled offstage. The attack occurred during the final song of Motley Crue’s set prior to the encore, and after making sure that Mars was alright, the band returned to finish their performance.
