BAND FEATURED IN KIA SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL
Rolling into this past weekend’s Super Bowl festivities where they were featured in the KIA Optima commercial, the world’s most notorious band has taken the world’s most notorious city by storm. Mötley Crüe–vocalist VINCE NEIL, guitarist MICK MARS, bassist NIKKI SIXX and drummer TOMMY LEE—launched Las Vegas’ first-ever hard rock residency with MÖTLEY CRÜE IN SIN CITY at The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with two rapturously received sold-out shows.
The MÖTLEY CRÜE IN SIN CITY experience got underway this past weekend on Friday, February 3–also declared MÖTLEY CRÜE Day by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman–as The Joint transformed into a ro Of Los Angeles,” “Looks That Kill” and “Girls, Girls, Girls,” the band also dedicated a portion of the show to an acoustic performance.
High above the audience on a floating circular platform, they performed stunning renditions of “Without You,” “On With the Show,” “Bastard” and “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away).” Other songs in the set included rare live gems “Piece Of Your Action” and “Afraid,” which haven’t been performed live in over 10 years. VINCE NEIL sailed over the crowd on a giant cross, while singing the grand finale of “Home Sweet Home.”
On Saturday night (February 4), MÖTLEY was joined by their friend Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach who jumped on stage for “Smokin’ In the Boys Room.” Rumor has it there will be more guests jamming with MÖTLEY CRÜE throughout their residency.
“The MÖTLEY CRÜE IN SIN CITY residency transformed the town, not only the Hard Rock Hotel,” states Paul Davis, Vice President of Entertainment, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “It’s never been done like this before.” Billboards on the world-famous Sunset Strip in Los Angeles and the 15 Interstate upon entering Vegas beckoned fans to the Hard Rock. Upon entering the casino lobby, VINCE NEIL’s custom 1932 Ford Coupe hot rod was displayed and poker players found themselves gaming on MÖTLEY CRÜE branded tables. Even maid service signs for hotel guest rooms indicated clean up for “Home Sweet Home.”
“For the first time, fans have a chance to be part of a limited engagement of the most notorious band in rock and roll in the greatest rock and roll club in the world: The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas,” said John Meglen President/Co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Live. “And the Hard Rock has been transformed to a Motley shrine…wait until you see this spectacle!”
On Sunday, February 5, the quartet returned for the third night of the run which lasts through February 19. Leading up to it, fans experienced their current KIA automotive TV commercial during the third quarter of the Super Bowl. The 60-second spot, titled “Drive The Dream,” stars VINCE, MICK, NIKKI and TOMMY in a race car dream sequence performing their 1989 smash hit “Kickstart My Heart.” Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, mixed martial arts legend Chuck Liddell and champion bull rider Judd Leffew are also featured in the commercial. A 90-second version of the spot can now be viewed online.
