Some ol' kidney stones can't keep Motley Crue down, because Vince Neil checked out of a hospital down under merely one day after having surgery. The show will go on as scheduled Tuesday night, for better or worse.

"Vince is a remarkable frontman who has an amazing track record of performing for Motley Crue fans for 30 years," manager Allen Kovac told CNN. He said Neil, 52, would sing at the Tuesday night show in Brisbane after having the stones removed in Sydney early Monday. He left the stage Sunday after four songs because of pain from the stones.

"He has been having problems for the last few days with kidney stones," Kovac added. "Vince is a warrior who has played shows through a wide ranging list of injuries. If there is a way to safely perform, he always does. In nearly 20 years of managing Motley Crue, I can't recall a show the band has canceled."

Technically, they didn't cancel Sunday night, either; Even though he was apparently on the floor of his dressing room right before the show, he still went on. Although watching your favorite '80s band's singer suffer and wheeze through a bout of kidney stones is anything but awesome.
