Tommy Lee, drummer for heavy metal band Motley Crue, suffered minor burns at a concert in Casper, Wyoming on Wednesday during a pyrotechnics explosion.
Lee was treated for minor burns and subsequently released
Lee was treated at a local hospital for the injuries to his arm and face, which occurred while he was suspended from a wire 30 feet above the stage.
The 43-year-old played one more song before the concert was cut short.
"He didn't look good so we chose to err on the side of caution," said singer Vince Neil on Thursday.
Neil was himself injured last month when he tore a calf muscle on stage during a concert in Memphis, Tennessee.
The accident occurred while Lee was being moved back and forth between several drum sets.
An eyewitness described the pyrotechnics involved as Roman candles.
According to the band's publicist, Lee is expected to recover fully from his injuries.
She said concerts in Bismarck, North Dakota on Friday; Rapid City, South Dakota on Saturday; and Sioux City, Iowa on Sunday would go ahead as planned.
