Motley Crue, who is believed that would never return playing after its “farewell” tour in 2015, recently performed in Kansas City during The Stadium tour.
Looking back, it was reported in 2014 that Motley Crue has filed and signed this “cessation of touring agreement” which forbids the band from doing tours after finishing their The Final tour in 2015. The iconic band even promised that they will never, ever, ever get back together after their scheduled breakup the following year.
In 2019, The Stadium Tour was announced to happen in the summer of 2020. It is a North American tour by British rock band Def Leppard, who are joined by Motley Crue themselves. However, due to unexpected circumstances like the global pandemic, the planned tour was pushed back to 2022.
The long-delayed North-American trek successfully kicked off its first show in Atlanta, Georgia last June 16, but Motley Crue were only able to do the first full show on June 28 in North Carolina. Tommy Lee, suffers from injuries he had two weeks before the tour’s launch.
The injured drummer was hesitant to share the reason of his injury, but his wife stated that it was because he broke four of his right ribs when he fell down the stairs during the band’s rehearsal. He was not able to play full sets on the early parts of the tour, he can only do three songs at most.
After that, he was replaced by Tommy Clufetos for the rest of the concert. However, during the band’s performance last June 25, Lee returned into being the badass drummer somehow. He managed to finish five songs which amazed many including his bandmate, Nikki Sixx, who even praised him. Sixx tweeted:
“The fact that Tommy was told by the doctor to not play with 4 broken ribs & he beasted half our show is a miracle. 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 fucking animal. Anybody out there ever break ur ribs?”
The Stadium tour marks as the Crue’s first live performance after bidding their farewell in 2015. It is scheduled to end by September 9 in Las Vegas. Watch their recent performance below.
