MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil recently spoke to FoxNews.com about the band’s current tour with POISON and NEW YORK DOLLS (see video below).
“We’ve got the full big production, and Tommy‘s [Lee, drums] crazy drum solo thing that he’s doing, the big roller coaster,” he said. “I mean, it’s a great concert, it’s a great package,” Neil continued. “POISON has a ton of great songs, they’ve been around for 25 years. And the DOLLS.”
On the NEW YORK DOLLS:
“They’re big influences on MÖTLEY CRÜE. I have David Johansen out there singing. I mean, it’s pretty cool!”
On MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s stage show:
“It feels good to just get out there with a big show. We’re all about [for] a 10-dollar ticket, give them a 100-dollar show. . . After the show, my knees hurt, my ankles hurt, the next morning my shoulders hurt. But once the lights go down, the music starts, you don’t feel any pain anymore. It’s just the next morning you’re like, ouch. We’re a bit older, now.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s current headlining trek with support from POISON and special guests NEW YORK DOLLS kicked off on June 7 at Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, Texas and will hit approximately more than 40 cities before coming to a close in August.
