The Stadium Tour, after being delayed for over two years, finally kicked off last night (June 16) in Atlanta, and the biggest headline from the show came via Tommy Lee.

The drummer didn’t perform during the entire Motley Crue set due to sustaining four broken ribs two weeks prior to the tour kickoff. Lee would make it through the first five songs in the Crue’s setlist before exiting and having Tommy Clufetos take over, but he would return to the stage to play piano on “Home Sweet Home.”

Lee said in a statement, “Man y’all ain’t gonna believe this s—! I broke 4 f—ing ribs! But I’ve been resting and healing and even though the doctor tells me I shouldn’t play at all, you know I’m stubborn and I’ll beast through the pain every show for as many songs as I can! And have no fear, my boy Tommy Clufetos is here to help me out until I’m back 100%. We’ve all been waiting years for this moment and there’s no way I’m missing this! On with the show!”

Of course, there was also the matter of singer Vince Neil, who received a lot of press leading up to the tour about whether he’d be in proper shape after a disastrous May 2021 solo gig saw him cut his set short after losing his voice. While Neil looked noticeably slimmer and energetic, we’ll let you judge his vocals in the fan-shot video below.

Def Leppard also had the daunting task of playing through significant rain during the first half of their set before the weather cleared up.
