According to Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun, MÖTLEY CRÜE will become the first hard rock band to sign a short-term residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The CRÜE is rumored to be playing a nearly monthlong series of three-and four-night concerts a week at the off-Strip casino starting at the end of February. Expect the official announcement just before Thanksgiving prior to the band’s U.K. tour with DEF LEPPARD and STEEL PANTHER.
MÖTLEY CRÜE wrapped one of summer’s biggest rock tours as headliners and honorees for the Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) live on Sunset Boulevard on August 20. The show, a combination of classic hit songs, massive pyro and fireworks displays, state-of-the-art sound and visual effects — including “The 360” drum coaster, with electronic music sensation deadmau5 joining Tommy Lee for a ride — rocked over 15,000 fans. It marked the largest crowd ever for the SSMF.
MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s summer trek landed the group on the Billboard “Hot Tours” chart six times since the tour launch, marking it as one of the legendary rock group’s most successful tours to date. The 48-city trek tour — which launched on June 24 and wrapped last month — was one of the summer’s highest grossing, packing amphitheaters and arenas all summer long, drawing half a million fans.
