TOMMY LEE Misses Third Consecutive MÖTLEY CRÜE Concert (Video)

October 18, 2015

MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee was unable to perform at the band's concert Saturday night (October 17) in Manchester, New Hampshire because he is suffering from tendinitis.

Lee also missed Wednesday's (October 14) show in Buffalo, New York, and Friday's (October 16) gig in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Filling in for him has been Alice Cooper's drummer, Glen Sobel. It is not clear if Lee will perform during Sunday's concert in Bangor, Maine.

Lee said in a statement that he was unable to play after sustaining an injury of "severe inflammation" to his left wrist.

"I am told this injury is temporary and that I will be back on stage very shortly," he said. "I'm doing everything in my power to speed up the healing process. I hate not being able to play for you guys!"

The 53-year-old drummer tweeted earlier in the week that he was in pain and unable to hold a drumstick but promised that he would rejoin his bandmates at the end of each show to play piano with his "good hand" for the finale of "Home Sweet Home".

MÖTLEY CRÜE's "The Final Tour" kicked off last year and will end New Year's Eve at the Staples Center in Los Angeles after one last round of North American gigs.

While announcing the first details of "The Final Tour" at a Los Angeles press conference in January 2014, the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE revealed that they took the unusual step of having their lawyer draw up a formal "cessation of touring" agreement that goes into effect at the end of 2015 and prohibits the members of the group from going on the road again under the MÖTLEY CRÜE banner.

The 2014 leg of "The Final Tour" was one of last year's top-grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million.
