With the age of 62 and an early ankylosing spondylitis diagnosis dating back to his youth, Motley Crue axeman Mick Mars is by far the most fragile member of the infamous glam rock outfit. This made the actions of a stage-storming fan during their May 4 performance in the Canadian city of Estevan all the more frightening.
The unnamed attacker decided to rush the stage while the band was delivering the finishing moments of their "Primal Scream" track, knocking Mars down to the ground and grabbing frontman Vince Neil just to be tackled by security and taken off stage.
"What the f--k is wrong with you, you f--king idiot?!" said the visibly agitated drummer Tommy Lee.
Although the band was uncertain on whether they'll return to wrap up the concert, the four-piece did ultimately get back on stage and gave fans the regular show closing.
Luckily, Mars managed to go through the entire incident without any serious injuries. "Thank all of you for your concerns about me being knocked down last night I'm alright nothing broken," the guitarist tweeted. "My body guard Rhyno got two busted ribs."
The group has now continued with the tour regularly and is currently preparing to take on a finishing set of seven concert dates in Canada. You can check out the remainder of the Canadian trek's itinerary, as well as the video of the entire incident below.
