The long-time Motley Crue drummer is the next act, along with DJ Aero, to perform at the House of Blues at Showboat's free Party Pit music series.
ATLANTIC CITY — Tommy Lee is currently a busy guy.
The long-time Motley Crue drummer, Hollywood celeb, tattooed madman and ex-husband of Pamela Anderson is currently part of the Deadmau5 Meowington Hax Tour with Excision and ZEDD, which kicked off at the House of Blues in Boston in October for three sold-out shows and continues through December on select dates.
In addition, Lee has a 2011 tour with Motley Crue, the veteran hard-rock band that will play shows in Europe later this year.
Meanwhile, Lee's getting himself some TV work, with NBC's Tommy Lee Goes to College, and the upcoming Syfy show Culture Shock with Tommy Lee.
Called "an investigative travel show," Culture Shock is an unscripted series that stars Lee as "he attempts to uncover various rituals, symbols, and other mysteries of secret societies," according to an Entertainment Weekly story.
“This is the first show that I’ve been a part of that will blow our minds and reveal things that will explain almost all our questions,” Lee told the magazine. “I’m very excited to be partnering with Syfy on this show. It’s going to be an amazing experience for all involved.”
Good News for Atlantic City Area Fans!
Although the DeadMau5 tour isn't coming close to Atlantic City, with dates in November and December in California, Ontario and the Bahamas — DeadMau5 did just perform a high-profile show at the Borgata in Atlantic City at the end of September (see photos here) — Atlantic City Weekly has learned that Lee will be coming back to Atlantic City, this time for a free concert at the House of Blues Party Pit (Backstage).
The free concert is set to take place Wednesday, Nov. 23, the day before Thanksgiving. DJ Aero will be appearing with Lee.
The show time has yet to be announced.
The free show follows similar free concerts at the House of Blues venue (formerly called Backstage, now called the House of Blues Party Pit) including appearances by former Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk (see photos here) on May 20, the Gin Blossoms on July 23, and most recently the band Fuel on Oct. 15.
Jason Spencer, regional director of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City said at the time: “From Ed Kowalczyk to Gin Blossoms and now Fuel, Backstage offers fans entertainment options that no other party pit in Atlantic City can match."
Tommy Lee's is definitely the most high-profile act the free concert series has booked thus far, which could mean that even bigger acts will appear at the Party Pit in the months to come.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

“You look at the drugs and the drinking and it’s amazing that we’re all still here,” Vince Neil tells AC Weekly. “We survived some dark days. We could have died many times from many different things.
"We have our typical relationships. It’s a cliché, but it’s like a marriage. Things aren’t always going perfectly. But a friend of ours pointed out that when the three of [us] are working together and singing together it's something very, very special."
On March 10 heads will bang at The House of Blues Casino at Showboat Atlantic City as the casino’s Party Pit plays host to the band, Filter. Known for their hard style and deep lyrical content, Filter will perform their greatest hits beginning at 10pm.
"It was a little bit of a culture shock coming from Las Vegas, as you can imagine. But then when I actually spent some time [in Atlantic City] and spent some time in competitors' casinos, I was pleasantly surprised and I feel that, you know, being involved in Revel is a very exciting piece of history for Atlantic City and I think will change how people look and perceive the market."
"At this point, it’s kind of like I have what I do. You know, beat-orientated, blues-driven, acousticky kind of music. You know folk, hip-hop, country, whatever you call it, I have what I do."
Surely concert-goers will be jumping around for this one.

� � Beauty & the Donald Not everybody gets a slot machine created in their likeness, but if you're a sex symbol, it helps. To be unveiled at the Taj Mahal Saturday, June 11 - as part of the casino's day-long Donald Trump birthday celebration - the new Playboy Get Lucky Wheel features photography of Pamela Anderson, star of the current Fox show Stacked, shot by David LaChapelle exclusively for Bally Gaming. Anderson and Trump will be on hand at the casino on Saturday, as the pair hands out $90,000 on the Boardwalk at 6:30pm as part of Trump's "Quarter Million Dollar" birthday giveaway. The party is expected to continue into the night at the Casbah nightclub. - JS 'Stewed, Screwed, Tatooed' Inspired by last year's punk shows at Atlantic City's Croctails and Le Grand Fromage timed to correspond with the Tattoo Extravaganza at the Convention Center, Hot Rod Tattoo is presenting a line-up of local punk and heavy metal bands this Saturday night at Le Grand Fromage at 25 Gordon's Alley. Along with Margate's punk-rock accordion artist Malcolm Tent, featured acts will include Jumpship, Bubble Eyed Dogboy, Resin, Siege Engine and A.C. Slater.

AMERICA AND KID Rock. The two go together like vanilla ice cream and hot apple pie. Whether he's rapping about sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, singing a pop-country duet with Sheryl Crow or lending his name and image to a NASCAR racecar, the Michigan native screams AMERICA. Some say it's more red neck America than anything else, but with each multi-platinum album that he's put out, Kid Rock has shown that there's more to him than originally meets the eye. Thus far he's pretty much done what any good artist ought to do. He listens, he learns, he challenges himself and he perseveres. All the while, he never forgets how to party and have a good time. He performs for our troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar, sings about the difficulties of being a single father and exemplifies the melting pot that is not only American music, but also American culture. He has successfully walked the hip-hop/hard rock line for several years, helping to bring that genre-blurring style of music into a genre of its own. Some would say he's a pioneer, others a rip-off artist. He's a culmination of Hank Williams Jr., Gregg Allman, Waylon Jennings, Run DMC, Beastie...
The odds were stacked in favor of Donald Trump as he welcomed Pamela Anderson to Atlantic City to celebrate his 59th birthday last Saturday, June 11 at the Taj Mahal. The festivities kicked off with a VIP Slot Tournament where regular slot and game players faced off to win one of the six top cash prizes being awarded that night. Additionally, a "special edition" Playboy slot machine from Bally Gaming, designed with sex symbol Anderson in mind, was unveiled. Anderson, like Trump, has been very successful licensing her name to a variety of different products. After appearing on an unprecedented 11 Playboy magazine covers, Anderson has fostered a gainful relationship with Hugh Hefner and Playboy Enterprises. That relationship formed the basis of this project. This was the debut of the Pamela Anderson Slot Machine in New Jersey, an exclusive to the Taj, which now houses 12 of the machines on its casino floor. While waiting for their turns to play, the gamers in attendance at the birthday bash had a chance to try out the Pamela Anderson Slot Machine. Husband and wife Lynn and Randy Stein from East Windsor, NJ gave their evaluation of the game. "It's cute," said Lynn. "You have to...
