Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee Forced to Sit Out Bridgeport Show With Wrist Injury
As Motley Crue bring their proven brand of hard rock to their fans one last time, fans hoping to see Tommy Lee pound the skins were out of luck at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Ct. last night (Oct. 16) as the iconic drummer was sidelined again after missing the band's Buffalo, N.Y. date on Oct. 14. While remaining hopeful the tendonitis would subside before taking the stage, as the clock ticked it became apparent earlier in the day he would be unable to perform for a second time.
Filling in again was Alice Cooper's drummer Glen Sobel, who powered his way through the set and kept the show alive. As was true for the Buffalo gig, Sobel did not perform the famed 'Cruecifly' drum solo. The stunt is a spectacle that sees Lee's kit lifted and guided through the air like a roller coaster on two tracks with the kit and Lee spinning 360 degrees on a horizontal axis while playing a drum solo.
Motley Crue have three more dates left on their North American leg of the tour before heading over to Europe. The band will return stateside in December to close out the Final Tour. To see Motley Crue, check out the remaining dates at the band's website.
