MÖTLEY CRÜE: No Shows Will Be Cancelled Following TOMMY LEE Injury

October 13, 2005

MÖTLEY CRÜE's management has sent the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the onstage incident Wednesday night (Oct. 12) that resulted in drummer Tommy Lee being hospitalized for minor burns:

"Tommy Lee suffered minor burns on his arms and face while suspended 30 feet above the stage during a pyrotechnic explosion at a MÖTLEY CRÜE concert in Casper, WY on Wednesday, October 12. He was treated as an outpatient at a local hospital and is expected to fully recover.

"MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil said, 'He didn't look good while the paramedics were treating him backstage so we chose to err on the side of caution and send him to the hospital.'

"No shows will be cancelled.

"The MÖTLEY CRÜE tour has been the unexpected success story of the live concert year. After six years apart, the band reunited earlier this year for a tour that has been one of the biggest box office attractions of 2005.

"Following the end of their own U.S. tour later this month, the CRÜE will join the ROLLING STONES for shows in Portland and Seattle before touring in Japan and Australia."
