Tommy Lee only has 9 fans at show

I'm not a fan of Tommy Lee at all and I'm glad to see others don't support bad music too.
What do you guys think?

Is this the beginning of the end of Tommy Lee demonic movement.

Dancehall star Tommy Lee Sparta was shook by his Trinidadian fans over the weekend when only 9 people showed up for his concert.

The “Uncle Demon” deejay was the headlining act on the concert slatted for Guaracara Park in Pointe-a-Pierre, Trinidad on Saturday March 23rd.

However, by approximately 2 a.m. promoters “Sparta The Concert” called off the show while staring at an empty venue. The handful of patrons who paid to see the deejay was refunded their admission.

Sources close to the promoters told Urban Islandz this morning that they are very disappointed and will not be booking Tommy Lee for another show.

“We are very disappointed because we expected a huge turn out and invested heavily in getting the venue up to scratch,” the source said. “We probably will not be booking this artist for another show because clearly its all just a hype.”

Lack of talent and a bad message, he's got two strikes already. Kind of odd to see a gothic type style adopted in JA, hopefully the trend ends.

Satan worshiping reggae???? Seems like an oxymoron.

A lot of modern day dancehall is what I like to call "stresshall" and this guy epitomizes the worst of it. I heard Pamela Anderson is still a fan though. ; )

So what..evil music is all over the globe. Dancehall, Reggae does not equal Rastafari. nor the other way round. Rasta can be manifest in all creativity all works.. and shall the anti-thesis. Nah worry if him pack a house..evil men do all the time. Blessed that this one did not.

More time evil comes in more appealing packages, even the devil in the Bible is an "angel of light". Reggae has always been a genre of stark contradictions focused on the same things the devil perpetuates, greed, lust, violence. People are just shocked when 1's use it in such a direct way.

However you may feel about Motley Crue's music (and most of it is sugary crap), anyone who's seen them live can attest that Tommy Lee does not suck.

Dubguy, he might have skills, but he still sucks in my book.. They have a name for dudes like him.. Something like a douche

"one of these days when you hear a voice say come,
who you gonna run to?"

that voice is the reaper, the piper.. coming to collect..

truth and reality heard by those with ears to hear.. deep within this simple, sing-songy tune.
some people cant get beyond the smiley touristy feel of this tune.. but the lyrics deep..

That's what I use to think until I met him....About 5 or so years ago I was asked to help with some spinal health care problems (I'm a Doctor of Chiropractic) for Tommy Lee and his tour manager at their hotel as they passed thru Seattle for a Motley Crue thing . At first I said no, cuz I had thought he was a "douche". I then remembered that I help everyone, douche or not at my practice so I went and helped them out. He was very respectful and "normal". After I checked out their spines, he invited me to stay and hang out for a bit. He asked me about my family, where I was from, how I got into my profession, and we had a really great conversation. Funny part was when he asked if I was going on any vacations this summer and I said that I was about to leave for this thing called Reggae On The River (think it was the last year). He said "is that the reggae festival on the Eel river in Humboldt? He had just heard about it a month or so before and had been checking it out online....lol

The experience was a lot different than I thought it would be. I have met many famous rasta JA stars that treated me with much less respect. The reality is you really don't know much about these stars, and what we see on TV, stage, videos some times are nothing like the real ting....

Hate to break it to you but there have been many reggae shows with bonafide artists who drew less paying customers than that...so don't be so quick to make fun of the guy.

ok

Love that reggae!

I've been to a perfect giddimani show with about 12 people total in the place!! Had to do with horrible promotion tho! I didn't hear about it till hours before and my friend that told me about it couldn't even make it cuz his ride situation .. Giddimani still performed.. A pretty short and sad set but it was obvious why..

It's not about who shows up, it's about how horrible that "music" is

I saw Johnny Clarke play to about 10 people at Moe's Alley a few years back. By the end of the show he was playing to two people on the dancefloor, myself included. Big up Mr. Clarke, doing it nice for me on a quiet Sunday night.

Saw Lutan Fyah about a year ago here in Durham at a very small spot....about 40 people or so. Luckily found out about the show the day before. I was speaking to him before the show and he said that he puts the same passion into every show, whether it be 50 or 5000. He played for over an hour and was very into it, even though you could tell he wasn't that familiar with the backing band too. A true humble artist.

Was one of my favorites for many years, but that show really put him at the top of my list.

SpliffP and I went to 19 Broadway to see Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band circa 2001 or 2002. The band started up right after our group of 4 walked in. They played two full sets of music for maybe 10-15 people. It was only my second time seeing him (first was SNWMF 2000) and the show was great. Clinton chatted us up between sets as well.

Regarding Tommy Lee(he of rock, not current JA dancehall), having observed him during an in-store meet & greet on the day of his solo LP release, I found him a genial and good natured rock musician, who wore a grin and showed sincere appreciation for his fan base(which, as I pointed out to my staff, included the cream of my region's professional lap-dancers).

Actually, you know who he reminded me of?? That character in the male enhancement ads who (as Lee does) has that big as* grin going on, as his wife stands in the background looking transcendentally post-coital.winking smiley

1998, Dread and Irie Club, Dallas, Tx-Justin Hinds , maybe 9 people. Justin performed admirably but he was visibly upset. Sad day, that one
