The accompanying photo showcased Lee in good spirits despite a bandaged hand, with the caption affectionately noting, “Such a champ.” However, the specific details regarding the nature of the injury were not disclosed.
The timing of Lee’s injury sparks concerns about Mötley Crüe’s upcoming concert commitments. Presently on a hiatus from live performances, the band is slated to make a return to the stage in May at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
