Report: Free TOMMY LEE Concert Falls Flat As Attendees Flee Early

Craig Wagner of the Daily Nebraskan is reporting that a free thank-you concert in Lincoln, Nebraska, courtesy of Tommy Lee's TV entourage, turned out to be less about music and more about TV.

Crowds waited impatiently outside the Rococo Theatre for more than an hour, comparing Tommy stories of retakes and staged antics.

"Right now I'm asking myself why I'm standing in line this long to see Tommy Lee," said freshman art major Eric Chloupek.

Outside the door, a sign stated that entering the theater granted filmmakers the right to use students' images "throughout the world in perpetuity."

"Make this unbelievable for TV," Lee said when he took the stage. "Trust me when I say this, the whole world is watching."

Holding a microphone before a bullhorn he said, "Let's show these people all around the world what's going on in Nebraska. Don't let me down. They're all watching."

Thanking Chancellor Harvey Perlman, who stood on a balcony above the stage, Lee professed he was having an emotional moment. Then he thanked the audience, his roommate, his band, and once again asked, "Can we make this amazing for TV?"

The crowd cheered before the stage, on which Lee, recording artist B.T. and another disc jockey stood. Playing a cover of BEASTIE BOYS' "Fight For Your Right", the University of Nebraska-Lincoln drumline entered the stage, and the horns of the marching band entered the audience. Read more.
