Motley Crue apparently feel you can own various types of stage equipement. Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx have both accused KISS of using some of the same show gimmicks that Crue did on their final tour in 2015.
Lee, who is no stranger to accusing others of jacking his stage show, posted a video of a recent KISS performance shocked at how similar the stage wizardry was to Crue's final shows:

Even Nikki Sixx got in on it, making his point much clearer:
Wow. Our body wasn’t even cold before they took this exact grande finale from our tour.Might not matter to Kiss fans but it does to Crue fans.I dug their music when I was a little kid and it was cool to Co-Headline together a few years but this disappoints me.Anyway. 🏴☠️ pic.twitter.com/ZgUGbE7IyB

You see, KISS used the same exact crane that the Crue rented from a live events company so they're jackin' their shit!
KISS have plenty to criticize but this seems like a bit much. I agree with Axl from MetalSucks' theory that the Crue are just stirring up some publicity for themselves because their Netflix movie is coming out next month.
KISS are still on the road, here are dates.
