Tommy Lee played drums on the first five songs of Motley Crue’s first show on ‘The Stadium Tour’ last week in Atlanta. Lee was down to three at last Saturday’s shows in Miami and Sunday in Orlando before he was replaced by Tommy Clufetos, who also worked with Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath.
Lee broke four ribs two weeks ago.He did come back out to play piano and drums on their 10th song of the set, “Home Sweet Home.” Bassist Nikki Sixx commented on Lee's performing, tweeting, "The fact that Tommy was told by the doctor to not play with four broken ribs & he beasted half our show is a miracle.”
Nikki added, "We are a band and are proud of his strength. He is doing the whole tour and day by day adding more songs. What a [bleeping] animal. Anybody out there ever break your ribs?"
The tour, with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett, continues tonight in Washington, D.C.
