Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil was just a bit rusty during his first on-stage solo performance since the pandemic started.
The rocker and his solo band headlined the Boone River Valley Festival in Iowa on Saturday and reports suggest Neil, 60, elected to call the show a wrap on the 14th song after performing a medley of Crüe classics and “Dr. Feelgood.”
However, when Neil hit a cover of the Beatles’ “Helter Skelter” he reportedly had initially forgotten the lyrics to the record before later tapping out due to his inability to carry notes after his voice gave way.
“It’s been a long time playing – my f–king voice is gone. We love you and we’ll hopefully see you next time, man,” he said as he exited stage left while his band continued to jam out and sing background vocals, according to video footage obtained by Loudwire.
A rep for Neil did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
