Motley Crue, Poison and New York Dolls Tour Details

(Gibson) Motley Crue have revealed further details of their forthcoming tour with Poison and New York Dolls, including drummer Tommy Lee's show-stopping drum solo gimmick.

Lee's solos are always a point of great discussion among Crüe fans – over the years they've included everything from a rolling drum kit to a magic trick involving a gun-toting astronaut. On this year's tour, Lee's drum kit will ride on a 360-degree roller coaster, and will be launched on multiple loops while he thrashes the skins.

Veteran production manager and set designer Robert Long says the 2011 set design is a "hard-hitting Crüe rendition of a rock 'n' roll burlesque theater," with the stage enveloped in red velvet drapery and a damask printed wall of guitar amps.

The tour's set list was selected by fans voting on MotleyCrue.com and includes tracks that haven't been performed by the band in nearly two decades. more on this story
