Tommy Lee plays first full set since breaking ribs

It’s been a rough month or so for Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee. Two weeks before his band were set to head off on their North American stadium trek on June 16, alongside Def LeppardPoison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Lee sustained a major injury in Nashville while Crüe were rehearsing, breaking four of his ribs.

Desperate to not pull out of the tour, the drummer has been striving to play as much of each set as possible, before having to hand over the drum sticks to his stand-in Tommy Clufetos due to being in too much pain.

At the quartet’s recent show on June 28 in Charlotte, North Carolina however, Lee finally was able to make it through a whole performance.
