Motley Crue Launches Las Vegas’ First Ever Hard Rock Residency In February
December 4, 2011
Three decades after beginning its iconic journey of debauchery and decadence, Motley Crue has announced plans to invade Las Vegas with the city’s first-ever hard rock residency: Motley Crue In Sin City.
The world’s most notorious band will he heading to the world’s most notorious city where they will perform an extended run — starting February 3 through 19 — at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Tickets went on sale on Saturday, December 3rd at www.motley.com, www.thejointlasvegas.com, www.ticketmaster.com and the venue box office. VIP seating and packages will also be available. The shows are produced by AEG Live.
2012’s Motley Crue In Sin City show is sure to leave the loud impression that what happens in Vegas will be heard around the world. Vocalist Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee have big plans for Motley Crue In Sin City to create a never-been-done before and incredibly interactive Vegas experience. Exact details about the show — expected to supersede the band’s high standard of production — are being kept under wraps for now to keep an element of surprise for fans. The engagement falls during a holiday-packed time in the calendar year: Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine’s Day and President’s Day.
The band made the announcement on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight.
“It is a dream come true for me especially living in and loving Las Vegas,” says singer Vince Neil. “I am thrilled that a guy like Piers Morgan would help kick it off!” Adds drummer Tommy Lee, “I don’t know about you, but when I think of Motley Crue I think of filthy sex, drugs, a REALLY big show and way too much fun… sounds like Las Vegas doesn’t it? A match made in heaven!!!”
“We are very excited to announce our upcoming partnership with legendary rockers Motley Crue,” said Paul Davis, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “The one-of-a-kind production will be the most unique, interactive, fan-driven concert experience the band has ever created. Motley Crue is a perfect fit for the Hard Rock and we can’t wait for this unforgettable residency to begin!”
Adds Bobby Reynolds, Vice President of Booking for AEG Live Las Vegas, “We’re thrilled that Motley Crue is creating their most notorious show ever and bringing it to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in notorious Las Vegas. This concert experience is going to represent what the fans love most about Motley Crue, the Hard Rock and Las Vegas: good times, rock n’ roll and a stage show like no one has ever seen before!”
