Tommy Lee is back. American’s favorite bad boy returned to perform his first full set on Mötley Crüe’s stadium tour Tuesday night (June 28) in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Lee broke his ribs just weeks before the band kicked off their much-anticipated reunion tour. Before last night’s show, he was only able to perform the first few songs of each concert before having Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos step in for the rest of each set.

In a social media post, Lee’s wife, YouTuber Brittany Furlan, explained that the drummer had fallen down the stairs while trying to carry luggage during their stay at a rental home in Nashville.

Lee seemed in top form behind the kit on Tuesday, as he performed for the full 15-song set. Video footage shows the drummer more than keeping up with his musical colleagues. Watch fan-filmed footage of the show below. The Crüe’s tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett picks back up Thursday (June 30) in Nashville, Tennessee.
