TOMMY LEE Is Looking Forward To MÖTLEY CRÜE Tour

MÖTLEY CRÜE's Tommy Lee has told The Associated Press that he's looking forward to going on tour with the group — so he can get some rest. The 42-year-old drummer, who recently reunited with his band mates for a world tour, says he's been working on so many television and music projects that he needs a break.

"There's no Tommy time anymore. I gotta go on tour to get a vacation," he told The Associated Press. "I'm looking forward to a little boredom."

Lee has been pulling double duty, rehearsing for the tour to support the band's CD "Red, White & Crüe" as well as finishing his solo album. He recently wrapped filming at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for the NBC reality show "Tommy Lee Goes to College", which will air this summer.

On tour, Lee says he's "basically living for those two hours a night to go out and rock."

MÖTLEY CRÜE's tours were notorious for their party atmosphere.

"That's why I bring my music studio on the road with me — to keep Tommy out of trouble," he said.

The tour opens Feb. 14 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with shows scheduled through mid-June, according to Lee's web site. Stops on the tour include New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Oslo, Norway, and London.
