The rocker was performing at the Monster on the Mountain Festival in Tennessee on Friday night when the freak accident occurred.
According to TMZ.com, Vince only had a few songs in his set when he fell through a gap between one of the speakers and the stage.
He was allegedly helped up by a member of the team and limped off the stage.
The site reports that he was then taken by ambulance to hospital where x-rays were taken.
His fellow group members said Vince was “in pain” and feared he had broken several ribs.
Vince’s injuries have yet to be confirmed, but bassist Dana Strum has reportedly told the crowd “he can’t breathe”.
The Ultimate Guitar reported that Dana said, “The truth is Vince fell and broke his ribs when he fell.
“He cannot breathe and he will be treated medically.
“He was so excited to be here. He lives in Tennessee. But he was ready to hang on and hold on when people here said to him, “Don’t do it. ”
“Let’s give a good clap, please, for this guy.” “
In true rock’n’roll style, the band would have continued without him by hiring guitarist Jeff Blando to sing for the rest of the set.
Heavy metal DJ and broadcaster Eddie Trunk tweeted: “Are you doing well?” @thevinceneil!
“Vince slipped and fell off the stage tonight at Monsters on the Mountain here at Pigeon Forge.
“Vince was moving and singing really well before the accident. He is now in the hospital receiving treatment and x-rays. More when I hear. Heal VN! “

Vince is best known as the lead singer of heavy metal band Motley Crue, which spawned hits such as Dr. Feelgood and Kickstart My Heart.
The group, which also includes drummer Tommy Lee, bassist Nikki Sixx and lead guitarist Mick Mars, was formed in 1981.
They performed together for over 10 years, but Vince quit the band after his heavy drinking began to affect his performance.
After going solo for a few years, he joined Motley Crue in 1997, but the group broke up again in 2002.
It wasn’t until 2008 that the original four band members got together to record the Saints of Los Angeles album.
The group has scheduled a stadium tour with Def Leppard and Poison, but shows have been postponed until 2022 due to the pandemic.
