The Mohegan Sun Walk Of Fame honor seeks to recognize those individuals who have made significant contributions to the success of Mohegan Sun as the Northeast’s premier entertainment destination. All of the individuals inducted into the Mohegan Sun Walk Of Fame will have their name engraved on a plaque that will be permanently placed at the entrance to Mohegan Sun Arena.
Hailing from Los Angeles, California, MÖTLEY CRÜE — Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums) — has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years. In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, three Grammy nominations for “Best Hard Rock Performance” and countless sold-out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans. The first rock band in history to have completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel Casino, MÖTLEY CRÜE is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind-blowing elements such as Tommy Lee‘s 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song “Sex”, released in summer 2012), but remain on the forefront of entertainment via cutting edge social media interaction. The band was featured in the award winning Super Bowl commercial for the KIA Optima. MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s New York Times bestselling memoir, “The Dirt”, is currently being adapted into a major motion picture.
