Drummer Tommy Lee played his first full performance with MÖTLEY CRÜE for “The Stadium Tour” last night (Tuesday, June 28) at Bank Of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
As most fans are aware, Tommy broke four of his ribs just two weeks prior to “The Stadium Tour” kicking off with DEF LEPPARD, POISON and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS. According to his wife, Tommy sustained the injury on his right side after falling down the stairs of an AirBnb the couple were staying at in Nashville while MÖTLEY CRÜE was rehearsing for the upcoming trek.

At the first few shows on “The Stadium Tour“, Tommy would play the first three songs of MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s set before being replaced by Ozzy Osbourne/BLACK SABBATH drummer Tommy Clufetos for the rest of the concert.
When Tommy initially announced at the Atlanta kick-off show that he had broken his ribs, Lee told the audience: “I wish I had a fuckin’ badass story, like me and Conor McGregor fuckin’ scrapping out in some fuckin’ bar or something, but I don’t.” Three days later, at CRÜE‘s concert in Orlando, Lee said: “About fuckin’ two weeks ago, I broke not one, not two, not three but four fuckin’ ribs right here. Crack. I’m not gonna tell you how because it’s fuckin’ bullshit. I wish I had a cool story for you, but I definitely don’t, man; it ain’t fuckin’ cool.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s long-delayed North American tour with DEF LEPPARD, POISON and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS will conclude on September 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
