Motley Crue Signs $100 Million Deal For Three Albums


February 11, 2008

Motley Crue rocker Vince Neil had 110-million reasons to smile for his birthday blowout weekend here–just two days earlier Vince, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars signed a $100-million+ mega deal to produce three albums and perform three world tours for the giant LiveNation entertainment conglomerate.

“We’ll actually have been together for 37-years by the time it comes to an end,” laughed Vince. I joined my pal and neighbor at the first dinner party that Planet Hollywood president Mike Mecca gave for him at the resort’s hot celebrity restaurant KOI. Then last night we all met up again for the second birthday celebration in Robert DeNiro’s new AGO restaurant at the Hard Rock.

By coincidence, my friend John O’Hurley, who is starring in Spamalot at the WYNN, was also there and offered his champagne wishes. A last-minute surprise was Saved by the Bell actor Dennis Haskin’s late-night arrival from Los Angeles to join the birthday group. Vince, who will go off next month on a solo tour of Canada, told me that the first of the three long world tours starts this July. The new contract runs for the next 10-years and includes 169 concert dates on the first global journey!

Motley Crue was formed in 1981 and, as one of the best-selling hard rock heavy metal acts, have sold 50-million albums worldwide. With their next, ninth studio album, The Dirt due this fall.
