    LOS ANGELES --
    A mechanical mishap led to a strange moment during Motley Crue's final show.

    The mishap happened during Tommy Lee's big drum solo. Lee performs on a drum set mounted to a roller coaster track above the crowd. On Friday night, the coaster broke down, leaving lee suspended upside down at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

    "It looks like the rollercoaster is broken," he yelled. "Well, f--- the rollercoaster! Come on guys, help. Come get me. I can't believe this is happening on the last night. I knew something wasn't right when I took off."

    There was then a pause in the show as roadies unhooked the drumkit from the rails, so Lee could continue performing, but the hitch didn't ruin the show, which featured a string of hits, including a cover of the Sex Pistols' Anarchy in the U.K.

    Morning,

    WOW ... I just found this thread while searching through WS having my morning coffee ... I heard the news on Saturday and was just stunned!

    And just unbelievable that this happened on the last Crue Concert ever

    I saw Tommy ride his Crucifly Rollercoaster twice with no problems ...

    Motley Crue outdid themselves on their FINAL TOUR ... one of the best concerts I have ever attended !

    At 53 years of age, I'm surprised Tommy Lee still has it. The guy did not stop playing the drums upside down until at least a minute or two after the coaster stopped and was in that position for more than 5 minutes, joking with the crowd. God bless him.

    Hi dotr !

    for posting the entire video !

    I only saw snippets, so I was glad to see the whole roller coaster portion of the concert ...

    Oh, and Tommy's upside down comedy routine ...

    I was impressed with Tommy's professionalism although some profanity he did not panic. Poor guy... Glad he was rescued. Whew!
