Vince Neil, Great White And Slaughter Cancel Show Due To Power Outage
August 18, 2013
The show went on for Ratt and Dokken when their private jet had to make an emergency landing after smoke was detected in the cabin yesterday, but Vince Neil, Great White and Slaughter were unable to overcome a massive power outage caused by a nearby traffic accident — leading to the cancellation of their Saturday night concert at Ford Park in Beaumont, Texas.
A press release by Ford Park stated, “An auto accident on Highway 124 near Brooks Road caused a massive power outage that affected Ford Park this afternoon, which has compromised the ability to safely continue with tonight’s performance of Vince Neil, Great White and Slaughter. We regret this incidence occurred but the band and promoter have agreed to reschedule this show, date to be announced at a later time. The safety of fans is a priority for all parties involved. Purchased tickets will be honored at the future date or refunds can be obtained at point of purchase.”
Vince Neil and Motley Crue will begin their second Las Vegas residency on September 18th at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “There’s a lot of cool stuff we’re going to use this time,” Neil said of the 12-show residency in an interview with Vegas.com. “Technology changes so rapidly and new stuff comes out all the time. All of a sudden someone goes, look at this, and we go, ‘Holy shit, that’s cool.’ We have to outdo ourselves every time we put something new together. This one — I don’t know how we’re going to top this one. There’s some crazy stuff going on in this thing and just a lot of fire and smoke and monsters and all kinds of cool stuff.”
“I think we’ll dig a little deeper in our bag of songs and do a lot of stuff that we haven’t done in many, many years,” Neil continued. “Those are going to be fun — fun for us and fun for the audience. So, it’s new songs, but it ain’t really new songs. They’re old songs, but they’re new to a lot of people.”
As for the rumors about Motley Crue retiring in the near future? “We’ll do the world probably a couple of times over and call it quits,” Neil said. “It’s about that time.”
