From USA Today:
Mötley Crüe has announced a three-week stint at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas starting Feb. 3 for four days a week. As the first hard-rock band to sign on for a Vegas residency, the group promises “over-the-top craziness,” says lead singer Vince Neil, 50.
Tickets for Mötley Crüein Sin City range from $65 to $179.50 and go on sale Saturday at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT at motley.com, the Hard Rock website (thejointlasvegas.com) and Ticketmaster.
The stationary show is a new concept for the band that’s currently touring with Def Leppard in the U.K.
“When it doesn’t have to move around from city-to-city, day-by-day, options become incredible,” says drummer Tommy Lee, 49, who adds that the show will be an interactive experience where fans are “in the show, not watching the show.”
Though the guys are vague on details, they hint at naked Girls, Girls, Girls, some non-Crüe entertainers, a souped-up drum kit and sky-high production values. “You’re going to leave and say, ‘Dude, I can’t believe what just happened here,’ ” says Lee.
The band will be rocking together a decade after the release of autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. A lot has happened since then: Lee has been DJing electro-house music with DJ Aero, and Neil was a contestant on ABC’s Skating With the Stars and came out with his latest solo project last year, Tattoos & Tequila. Both said “the time was right” for the Vegas gig.
Neil, who is a Vegas resident, says he’s excited to perform for all the walks of life that visit his city. “It’s going to be everybody — a biker standing next to the attorney,” says Neil.
Attendees are “coming there to rip it, Vegas-style,” says Lee. “That’s why we signed up for this.”
