See Tommy Lee’s newest drum rollercoaster
Motley Crue’s drummer Tommy Lee wants to add a seat for a fan to sit in whilst doing his drum solo on the band’s farewell tour. Named “The Cruecifly”, Tommy’s solo sees the drummer move around the venue on a rollercoaster track where he loops the loop while performing.
“I wanted to add an extra seat,” the drummer says, “because I wanted to take a fan with me, which we may still do. We’re still kinda messing around with the insurance company, because it’s one thing to insure me over the audience, but it’s another to insure another just regular folk that I pick out of the crowd. That’s a whole other animal, so we’re working on it.”
Lee has performed stunts during his solo for years, and he says “The Cruecifly” tops them all. “I’ve been wanting to do [this] my whole life, and [other tours have been] leading up to this,” he explains. “This is like the mothership.”
Lee and Motley Crue recently kicked off their farewell tour after more than three decades together. The two-year treak, billed as “The Final Tour,” sees the band on the road with special guest Alice Cooper. North American dates will wrap up November 22 in Spokane, Washington
