Nikki Sixx has been performing on Motley Crue's farewell tour in quite a bit of pain.

On Wednesday, he took a break in the tour to have surgery to correct a double hernia. Sixx wrote on his Facebook page:

I have been performing during the last few months with a pretty intense double hernia but you gotta give 100% even through the pain onstage.The good news is yesterday I got surgery on both sides and it went really really well.My lovely wife,kids and Leica have been really taking care of me.I should be up and kicking ass in a few weeks and back in the gym/tour in 6 weeks.
Looking forward to seeing you all back out on the road..

PS..Holy Jesus, it feels like I got kicked in the stomach by a horse.They gave me some pain meds but I am trying to not take them and luckily Courtney Bingham-Sixx looks pretty hot in her nurse outfit…

Motley Crue do not resume their tour until October 10 in Oklahoma City, OK. Sixx also has the new album from his band Sixx:AM, Modern Vintage, being released on October 7.
