It was a hot summer night on July 19th, 2009, at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, when 14-year-old Jason Hartless stepped out on stage to kick off the opening night of Mötley Crüe’s “Crüe Fest 2” Tour as the hired drummer for one of Motley Crue’s supporting acts. Everything changed when the 14-year-old Jason Hartless received a call explaining that a band scheduled to tour on the Crue Fest 2 Tour needed a drummer to crisscross the United States until Labor Day weekend. Without hesitation Jason jumped at the opportunity.

This was the summer that Jason was transitioning from junior high to high school, it would also be his first year of marching band camp and drumline. So the choice was go to band camp or tour all summer with Motley Crue. It was not a hard decision.

Fast forward 10 years to the day and Hartless will kick off the opening night of the Ted Nugent ‘The Music Made Me Do It Again!’ Tour, once again drumming for the Motor City Mad Man. This will be Jason’s fourth tour drumming for the rock icon. He started drumming for Nugent in 2016 on the “Sonic Baptizm Tour”.

The 2019 “The Music Made Me Do It Again!” Tour is a must-see!”
