Tommy Lee slams meet-and-greet fees
Cash critic: Tommy Lee
Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee is refusing to take part in meet-and-greet sessions on the band’s current tour – because he doesn’t agree with fans forking out for the experience.
The drummer won’t be present for those who pay $899 for Crue’s Kickstart My Heart ticket package at venues in Australia.
Lee says: “For those of you that are asking why I am not doing any more meet-and-greets – it’s got nothing to do with me not wanting to meet the fans.
“I just don’t agree with doing it under the certain given circumstances. I love you all and I’ll gladly high-five y’all if I see you – and you won’t have to pay me for that.”
Last year Lee released a furious statement slamming fan who tried to take photos in private circumstances, saying: “You wouldn’t want a handshake standing at the pisser in the bathroom next to me, would you? Or when you’re eating a quiet meal with your family, some rude jackass comes up and asks for a picture. Just take a second and think: is this cool?”
He later revealed the outburst came after someone attempted to snap a picture while he was collecting the ashes of his recently-departed mother.
