Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx used the break in the band’s final tour to get surgery.

Sixx revealed in a Facebook post, “I have been performing during the last few months with a pretty intense double hernia, but you gotta give 100 percent even through the pain onstage. The good news is yesterday I got surgery on both sides and it went really really well… I should be up and kicking ass in a few weeks and back in the gym/tour in six weeks. Looking forward to seeing you all back out on the road.”

Sixx will have to do some quick healing as the Crue are scheduled to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 19th, with their tour resuming October 10th in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
