November 11, 2008
GUITAR CENTER AND MOTLEY CRUE AWARD THE LAST VEGAS THE ULTIMATE CAREER-ALTERING OPPORTUNITY…A CHANCE TO TOUR WITH THE WORLD’S MOST NOTORIOUS ROCK BAND
The Last Vegas, winner of Guitar Center On-Stage, surprised with immediate opportunity to open for Motley Crue this Friday, November 14th at The Palladium In LA
In front of a capacity crowd, Guitar Center and Motley Crue tapped The Last Vegas from Chicago, IL, as the winner of Guitar Center On-Stage at the world famous Whisky A-Go-Go last night. Over the past eight weeks, bands across the United States submitted their music at makerockhistory.com. From close to 8000 submissions, 30 semi-finalists were selected, which were then narrowed down to the six top undiscovered bands in the country, with The Last Vegas prevailing as the one band chosen for the ultimate, career altering opportunity – the chance to open on tour for rock icons, Motley Crue. The Last Vegas will get the opportunity to experience the mayhem of touring with Motley Crue, and for a taste of what’s to come, check out the Motley’s video for “Mutherf*cker of the Year” below.
In addition to the slot on Motley Crue’s 2009 “Saints Of Los Angeles” U.S. tour (dates to be announced on Friday, November 14th), The Last Vegas also takes home $25,000 cash, $20,000 in exclusive new gear from Gibson Guitars, management from Tenth Street Entertainment, and a recording deal from Eleven Seven Music. In true Crue fashion, The Last Vegas also found out that their career is literally going from “0” to “60” overnight and will be opening for the notorious rockers at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles this Friday, November 14th. The band will record their first single immediately. It will be available as a stream on AOL on November 24th and as a download on iTunes by November 25th.
“The overall talent and energy of The Last Vegas surpassed our expectations,” said Motley Crue’s Vince Neil. “Motley Crue is excited to pass the torch on to these amazing musicians, just as Ozzy did for us over 25 years ago.”
