Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe has recently been admitted to the hospital due to a hand injury, a fact shared by his wife Brittany on Instagram. Brittany posted a picture of Lee with his hand wrapped in bandages, simply captioning it “Such a champ,” but didn’t elaborate on how the injury occurred. Despite the setback, Lee seemed upbeat. This development, however, has sparked concerns about the band’s ability to meet their upcoming tour commitments.
Currently taking a break from touring, Mötley Crüe is scheduled to resume their live performances in May at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The tour includes stops at major events like Welcome to Rockville 2024 in Daytona Beach, Florida, and Summerfest 2024 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, before wrapping up at the Ottawa Bluesfest in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, in July. They also recently announced a special performance at the North Dakota State Fair on July 19, 2024, a popular event attracting hundreds of thousands of fans, with tickets going on sale in March.
Alongside their touring plans, Mötley Crüe has been stirring excitement with various activities. They marked the anniversary of their formation on January 17 with a significant announcement, revealing the launch of the Crüeseum, a digital museum chronicling their four decades in the rock scene. There’s also buzz about new music, following Nikki Sixx’s teaser about a potential 2024 album release.
The band is experiencing a lineup change as well. With Mick Mars concentrating on his solo work, guitarist John 5 is set to join the group, signaling a fresh era for Mötley Crüe.
