Three decades after beginning its iconic journey of debauchery and decadence, MÖTLEY CRÜE has announced plans to invade Las Vegas with the city’s first-ever hard rock residency: “Mötley Crüe 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. The iconic band will perform four shows a week. Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day and President’s Day fall within these dates.
In honor of Las Vegas’ first hard rock residency, “Mötley Crüe In Sin City”, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman has proclaimed Friday, February 3, 2012 as “Mötley Crüe Day.”
Speaking to the Las Vegas Sun, MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil said of the upcoming show, which will include an array of theatrics, pyrotechnics, aerialists, wild video displays, a rollercoaster drum set and even a “little people” version of the band, “It’s pretty amazing. I think people are going to walk out of this show going, ‘What the (heck) just happened to me?’
“We’ll have a Little Crüe in there. We’re going a little more than two hours. It’s a long show, full of amazing visuals and stuff you would not expect from a rock concert.
“This isn’t a thing where we just set up some amps and go out and play. The production is so over the top, man. It’s a full-blown show. . . It’s Cirque [du Soleil] meets rock. This is not a show where you just sit there and look at the stage. It’s happening all around you. We’re utilizing the whole place, the whole Joint, as the stage. We came up with some of the craziest ideas we could, then went to the engineers to see if it was possible.”
“If you look at what was a smaller version of what we’re doing now, it was the ‘Carnival Of Sins’ [2005-2006] tour. This is that show times 100.”
“We’re actually rehearsing now, doing all these different versions of old songs. We’ll have an acoustic set inside the show that we rarely ever play. There will be a lot of stuff that, even if you’ve been to see MÖTLEY CRÜE a bunch of times, will be new for you.”
