Motley Crue to tour with Tommy Lee’s 360 degree Drum Rollercoaster.
The wonders of the wheel will be spectacularly unveiled during Tommy Lee’s thrilling drum solo where he is launched into multiple loops and pyrotechnics while continuing to perform.
Not one to keep the fun to himself, the drummer also hand picks a fan from the audience to join him for his crazy ride at every show.
Daredevil, Tommy Lee says “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!! 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 audiences heads! Mötley Crüe brings you on a thrill ride, jump on the 360! Let’s do this! By the way, it’s really f*****g difficult playing while on this ride!”
The band’s highly anticipated tour kicks off next month in Birmingham. Witness the insanity for yourself at the following dates:
TUESDAY 6 BIRMINGHAM LG ARENA

FRIDAY 9 GLASGOW SECC HALL 4
