The singer left the Sydney concert in pain, his manager says.

Motley Crue cut short its Sunday night show in Sydney so singer Vince Neil could be treated for kidney stones, his manager told CNN.

"Vince will be going into surgery to remove the kidney stones," band manager Allen Kovac said Sunday.

The 52-year-old rocker left the stage in pain and was admitted to an Australian hospital, Kovac said. Neil has been experiencing problems with kidney stones over the last few days.

The group's next show is scheduled for Tuesday in Brisbane, Australia, and will go on as planned.

"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," Kovac said. "In nearly 20 years of managing Motley Crue, I can't recall a show the band has canceled."

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and guitarist Mick Mars tweeted their apologies for cutting Sunday night's show short.

"Sorry Sydney for a short set tonight but Vince had to be rushed to the hospital for internal pain," Sixx tweeted. "Will update you on his progress."
