MÖTLEY CRÜE recently became the first hard rock band to sign a short-term residency at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
The CRÜE will play a three-week series of four-night concerts a week at the off-Strip casino starting on February 3 and running through February 19.
Speaking to USA Today, MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil said the show will be more of a spectacle — “something we could not do on a regular tour” when sets have to be put up and pulled down every night. There will be nine dancers, aerialists, plus “a lot of songs MÖTLEY hasn’t played in many years,” according to Neil, including “Piece Of Your Action”.
Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee have big plans for Mötley Crüe In Sin City to create a never-been-done-before and incredibly interactive Vegas experience.
Said Neil, “A lot of the perception is that musicians go there to die … ‘Oh, you guys must be ending your career.’ ” In reality, Vegas is a happening place where “you can be so creative.”

Neil said that if the run of shows is a success, the CRÜE could return for more dates in the future.
