Mötley Crüe: ‘The 360’ Drum Kit


Mötley Crüe launched their summer U.S. tour last Tuesday (June 7) in Dallas, TX at the AT&T Center. One of the highlights of the current tour is the new “360” vertical drum rollercoaster, which features Tommy Lee being launched into multiple vertical loops while continuing to perform. To add to the fun, Lee is having a fan picked from the audience join him for his crazy ride at every show.

"This idea came about from when I was a kid going to concerts,” explains Tommy Lee. “Whenever the drummer started his drum solo, I wondered why people would leave to go get a beer, buy a t-shirt, restroom, whatever!! I wanted to show people what happens behind the drumset, so I decided to expose it all by flipping the drums vertical, upside-down, making them disappear and fly over the audiences heads! Mötley Crüe brings you on a thrill ride, jump on the 360! Lets do this! By the way, it's really f@cking difficult playing while on this ride!”

For the first time, Mötley Crüe called on the fans to decide everything from the support acts Poison and the New York Dolls, to the songs chosen for the summer run, making it the ultimate fan-interactive tour. For the final set list, the band listed every recorded song and surveyed fans at their website; the shows will include several songs the iconic band hasn’t performed live together in almost 20 years.
