During an interview for Triple M, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee revealed the details of how they are planning to regain the reputation of the band in 2020.
As you might remember, back in 2015, the famous heavy metal band Mötley Crüe members announced that they were done touring together. However, later, their biographical film, ‘The Dirt,’ was released digitally on Netflix on March 22, 2019. The success of the film led to the band’s backing down from their cessation of touring decisions.
Through the end of 2019, Mötley Crüe officially announced their upcoming reunion for ‘The Stadium Tour‘ in 2020, which would be welcoming fellow rock veterans Def Leppard and Poison.
On a recent conversation with Triple M, the talented drummer of Mötley Crüe, Tommy Lee, talked about their plans of regaining the band’s reputation in 2020. Tommy specifically mentioned the impact of ‘The Dirt’s success on their comeback plans as part of the upcoming ‘The Stadium Tour.’
Here’s what Tommy Lee stated about getting their reputation back during the interview:
“I think that definitely spiked and maybe had some effect on the sale of ‘The Stadium Tour’, because I really believe it invigorated or brought in a newer audience also that maybe hadn’t — obviously maybe heard about us, but had never been to a show or never really knew our story.
And I know for a fact, ’cause people have written to me about it, going, like, ‘Dude, I can’t even believe that’s what it was like in the ’80s. Fuck! Nothing is like that anymore. It was, like, anything goes.’ And I believe a whole younger generation of kids are, like, ‘Oh, I’ve gotta see this.’ I mean, it was such a fucking awesome time that I think a lot of kids are bummed that they missed out on that, they didn’t get to experience it.
So maybe now is their chance to come and give it a taste. Who knows? I’m just guessing. But I know for a fact a lot of kids are, like, ‘Dude, man, that’s crazy you guys are even alive. Woah!'”
Furthermore, Tommy talked about how much he appreciated the success of ‘The Dirt‘:
“It is really crazy, man and I’m grateful that the movie even got made, for one, and how Jeff Tremaine, the director, packed in years of mayhem into an hour and a half — whatever it was; close to two hours — into that amount of time. How he did that is beyond me. It’s just fantastic — fucking fantastic.”
