Mötley Crüe founder pulls out of reunion tour due to broken ribs
Drummer and founding member of glam metal band Mötley Crüe Tommy Lee broke four ribs and was forced to pull out of a reunion tour along with other members of the band who hadn’t been together for the past seven years. Page Six reports.
Despite broken ribs, the musician still took part in the concert at Truist Park in Atlanta, USA. He lasted five songs, ignoring the advice of a doctor who asked him not to go on stage.
“I’ve been resting and healing and even though the doctor told me I shouldn’t play at all, you know I’m stubborn and will push through the pain of every show, playing as many songs as I can,” Tommy Lee wrote on social media before the concert. .
Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil also broke his ribs during a concert last year. The musician did not notice that there was a gap between the edge of the stage and the sound equipment, and fell into it, falling to the concrete floor.
Mötley Crüe was founded in 1981 in Los Angeles. The band was formed by drummer Tommy Lee and backing vocalist Nikki Sixx. They were subsequently joined by Vince Neil and Mick Mars.
