Tommy Lee Leaves Motley Crue Reunion Tour Mid-Show
Tommy Lee left the first Mötley Crüe reunion show after five songs due to broken ribs.
Lee announced he had broken his ribs ahead of the first Stadium Tour show but insisted he would still be able to play.
“Man y’all ain’t gonna believe this s–t,” he wrote on Instagram. “I broke four f–king ribs!”
Lee added: “We’ve all been waiting years for this moment and there’s no way I’m missing this! On with the show.”
The drummer played five songs with the band including “Wild Side,” “Shout at the Devil” and “Too Fast for Love,” according to Ultimate Classic Rock.
The Stadium Tour features Mötley Crüe, Joan Jett, Def Leppard and Poison. The tour was originally planned for 2020, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The tour kicked off Thursday night with a show in Atlanta and is set to run through September 9, with the final show taking place in Las Vegas.
“It’s on! We don’t think we’ve ever looked forward more to kicking off a tour than this one,” Mötley Crüe previously said in a statement. “We can’t wait to finally see all the fans across North America again. Get ready for a wild ride this summer!”
