Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee says he was ripped off by one of the hottest rappers out there.
Travis Scott’s Astroworld tour features some pretty cool staging elements to try and bring the theme park concept to life. Lee wants credits for mechanisms he first used in his live shows nearly a decade back -- a 360 degree Ferris wheel contraption that held the drummer and his drum kit and a roller coaster that allowed him to move around above the crowd. He wrote, “Just found out this [effing] idiot @TravisScott or someone on his team ripped off the 360 AND The Cruecifly! [What the hell]? Get an original idea bro.”
If you compare video of the two stage shows, it’s easy to imagine that Scott’s setup was at least heavily inspired by Motley Crue. The rocker says, “I get copying is a form of flattery but this is just straight off my [stuff].”
