The Crue was performing 'Primal Scream' at a show inCanada when an audience member managed to evade security andclamber on the stage running straight into Mars, who wascelebrating his 62nd birthday. Mars later reported his personalguard Rhyno had suffered two broken ribs.

The show was halted as the band's techs and roadies restrainedthe 'fan' and picked Mars off of the stage floor and helped himoff. Drummer Tommy Lee shouted:

"What the fuck is wrong with you, you fucking idiot?" Neiltold the crowd: "We might be back," before disappearing. After adelay they returned and finished the show.
