Tommy Lee won’t be able to play the drums for several Crue Fest 2 shows, after suffering severe burns on his left hand while playing with sparklers. Read more on Tommy Lee below.
Tommy Lee will be out of commission for a few of the Crue Fest 2 shows due to his hand injury.
The drummer actually burned his hand while playing with sparklers. Lee’s thumb and forefinger were wrapped in bandages when he explained his absence from Saturday’s show in Detroit.
Tommy Lee stated, “First of all, I suck. I was having fun and I burned myself,” said Lee, who proceeded to hand the crowd a bottle of Jagermeister and thumped on a drum with his right hand during the encore for Girls, Girls, Girls.
Bassist Nikki Sixx commented:
“Accidents do happen and, yes, frustration does happen to everybody, including Tommy, who would rather play drums (even with a damaged hand) than just about anything in the whole world. But following doctor’s orders for a few shows is what we have to (do) right now (or cancel shows). We all wanna say we’re sorry Tommy has to sit out a couple shows, but we hope to have him back up on the drums ASAP.”
