Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee Bringing Drum Rollercoaster To December U.K. Tour


Tommy Lee has revealed that he will be performing on his drum rollercoaster during the band's U.K. tour next month.

The Mötley Crüe drummer will play a drum solo in which he will be launched into the air on a fixed rail, where he will be spun upside down over a series of rollercoaster-like loops. The act also includes pyrotechnics in the background.

Said Lee of the rollercoaster: "I wanted to show people what happens behind the drum set, so I decided to expose it all by flipping the drums vertical, upside-down making them disappear and fly over the audience's heads!"

He added: "This idea came about from when I was a kid going to concerts. Whenever the drummer started his drum solo, I wondered why people would leave to go get a beer, buy a t-shirt, restroom, whatever!!"

Mötley Crüe will be touring with Def Leppard and Steel Panther next month, kicking off their U.K. dates with a December 6 show in Birmingham and wrapping up with a December 14 show at the Wembley Arena in London.
