MOTLEY Crue's drummer Tommy Lee has quit the reunion tour after he broke four of his ribs.
The band member left in the middle of performing at last night's concert.
A fan at the concert posted a video of Tommy on Instagram explaining what happened and he reposted it to his account.
The drummer greeted the fans and thanked them for being there.
Although he did not give an explanation for how he broke his ribs, the 59-year-old did tell the crowd he broke four of them about two weeks ago.
"I wish I had a bada** story like me and Conor McGregor scraping out at some f**king bar or something, but I don't," he told the crowd.

Tommy lasted only five songs into the setlist before he was in pain and had to leave for the night.
However, that was five more than he should have played.
"The doctors told me 'No playing' and I was like are you f**king joking, bro? We got a tour to do," Tommy told the crowd.
"But I ain't sitting out for s**t. My boy, Tommy Clufetos (Black Sabbath's drummer) is going to help me out here and I'll see you guys later. Let's get on with the godd**n show," the drummer said as he walked off stage.

After playing the show, Tommy went into more depth in a lengthy Instagram post.
He stated again that he broke four ribs and that the doctors told him not to play, but he was "stubborn" and "wouldn't listen."
"But I've been resting and healing… and I'll beast through pain every show for as many songs as I can," he wrote.
He was sure the Black Sabbath drummer would help him out because everyone "has been waiting years for this moment" and he "wasn't going to miss it."
CRUE IS BACK TOGETHER
Motley Crue took a seven-year hiatus, where they told fans they were quitting touring and were "completely done."
However, in 2018, the band started recording new music and released four songs for the band's biography film, The Dirt.
Rumors started to circulate in 2019 that Motley Crue would be touring together, following the success of the Guns 'N Roses Reunion Tour.
The band was ready to come back strong than ever, but the COVID-19 pandemic set everything back and canceled their shows.
However, they are finally out on the road again after years of not performing.
It kicked off on June 16, along with Def Leppard, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, and Poison.
And of course, Tommy Clufetos joined them as well and will help out the Crue drummer until he's "100 percent back at it."
The Stadium Tour runs through September 9, ending in Las Vegas.
Tommy is most known for being a rock legend and for being married to Pamela Anderson.
The drummer is the founding member of the heavy metal band, which was put together in 1981.
He also founded the rap-metal band Methods of Mayhem and pursued solo music projects.
The drummer has dabbled in TV and starred in two reality shows.
The couple's relationship was so publicized and popular that a Hulu series was made about them called Pam & Tommy.
Unfortunately, they split in 2010 after getting married in 1995 and decided to co-parent their children- Brandon and Dylan.
