Video of Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx recently spitting on fans
Video footage has surfaced on www.youtube.com of Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx spitting on fans during the band’s tour stop at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida on September 2, 2015.
Apparently and reportedly, Sixx got frustrated with some fans in the front rows taking selfie photos and he ended up spitting on them. Sixx‘s bandmate Tommy Lee was reportedly not pleased with what took place and the pair apparently sent a few tweets on twitter.com in that regard.
A tweet from Sixx on September 2nd states: “Stop taking selfies and be AT the concert idiots. #morons #FrontRow #Miami.”
Lee tweeted after the Miami show on September 2nd: “I want to apologize for the shitshow tonight! Well …I played good!”
A subsequent tweet from Sixx on September 3rd indicates: “I never said DONT take pictures of a show.I said stop taking pictures of YOURSELF or living IN YOUR PHONE “ALL NIGHT”. WATCH the show.”
Since July 2, 2014, Motley Crue have been touring on what they have contractually agreed to be their last ever tour as a band and which has been dubbed the “All Bad Things Must Come To An End” tour. The group’s last tour has not been without its share of controversy.
Sleaze Roxx caught the first show of the tour at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, which was plagued with interruptions during the concert and a subpar performance from Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars. Sleaze Roxx stated in its review of the July 2, 2014 show: “The slogan for Motley Crue‘s “final” tour is “all bad things must come to an end” — it could not be more appropriate. On opening night of their alleged last tour, Motley Crue, or rather guitarist Mick Mars, provided a shockingly subpar and unprofessional performance to the sold out crowd at Grand Rapids, Michigan.”
Sleaze Roxx also commented: “Oddly, after “Primal Scream”, guitarist Mick Mars came out to play a less than memorable solo. A guitar solo? After the third song? Why? The solo was pretty poor and ended with Mars simply playing some basic riffs. Eventually it became apparent that the band was experiencing some technical difficulties as frontman Vince Neil explained that there was a hole in drummer Tommy Lee‘s bass or kick drum. Mars had likely been sent out to pass some time, and that would explain the “quality” of his guitar solo. Once Mars was finished, Neil indicated that the band would be back in three minutes — but another ten minutes passed by with nothing happening. What a momentum killer. Eventually Motley Crue were back and tried to recapture their momentum with some good versions of “Same Ol’ Situation” and “Looks That Kill”, along with a meek version of the oldie “On With The Show”. The unthinkable then happened when Mars completely screwed up the intro to “Too Fast For Love”. Perhaps his bandmates were frustrated with him because Lee, or was it bassist Nikki Sixx, threw him under the bus by declaring to the crowd something along the lines of, “Mick does not remember how to play the song — the song is only 35 years old”. Ouch — that hurts. It was somewhat obvious when listening that Mars was off, but now it was public knowledge. This then led into an approximately 20 minute break where the house lights — yes, the house lights — were turned back on. Another huge momentum killer. I would have thought that a veteran band such as Motley Crue would have weathered the off-time by entertaining the crowd, but apparently not. This would have been an opportune time for the very charismatic Tommy Lee to go out and shoot the shit with the audience, but instead fans had to wait with the show interrupted for quite a long time.”
The problems on opening night did not stop there as Sleaze Roxx noted: “To me, the worst part of the night came when the guitarist screwed up yet again during the intro to the classic “Live Wire”. That song has likely been played at every single Motley Crue show, but there was Mick Mars faltering so badly that his bandmates had to stop the song. I even saw what was likely an exasperated Lee with both of his arms raised as if to say, “What the fuck is he doing?””
