Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx claimed that KISS ripped off their stage design for their farewell tour. In another conversation, drummer Tommy Lee slammed rapper Travis Scott for the same reason.
Recently, Nikki Sixx spoke in an interview with SiriusXM, and revealed the truth behind their claims against KISS and Travis Scott. He said:
“We’ve got no problems with [KISS]. You know who we had a little bit of a problem with? This company [that built the stage] — I’m not even gonna give ’em props [by] naming them.
We’ve worked with them a long time with our production manager, and they’ve done stuff with us that’s really cool, like Tommy’s roller coaster and different versions of that. And that takes a lot of technology and a lot of people to make it happen, make it cool and make it safe. You’ve gotta take that around the world.
Well, then, they give the same thing to Travis Scott. And Tommy was bummed. But we misdirected our anger. He was mad at Travis Scott. Travis Scott probably didn’t even know that we even did that however many years ago. And then my thing was they’re using the same arms that we developed.
But you know what? Not shame on KISS, not shame on Travis Scott — shame on the company for doing that. We will never work with them again.”
