Motley Crue Drum Set Up Banned in Some Venues Because of Safety Risk
In recent weeks, Motley Crue have been out on the road with their farewell tour. While the event promised to offer fans the thrill and spectacle of seeing the Crue for one last time, not everybody has been leaving satisfied.

As Classic Rock reports, some fans have been questioning why the Cruecifly - the elaborate rollercoaster drum rig that extends over the audience, has not been featuring at all shows.

As drummer Tommy Lee revealed on Twitter after a show in Milwaukee, the stage set up poses a health and safety risk in some venues because of its massive size:

"Hi guys. Want you to know certain venues cannot handle the Cruecifly. It's not our fault their roof cannot hang the rig. It's massive!"

While fans at the Milwaukee show might have been disappointed by the absence of the Cruecifly, they were treated to a rendition of the band's new song, "All Bad Things." Check it out below:
