When The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino announced it would be teaming up with the world’s most notorious band MÖTLEY CRÜE, I was extremely excited because I knew this was going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. I knew very little about the band when we first announced the show back in December 2011 but as each week goes by, I find myself loving them a little more.
MÖTLEY CRÜE is comprised of Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums). They’ve been around for more than three decades! They’ve introduced the world to songs such as “Kickstart my Heart,” “Shout at the Devil,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood” and many, many more. They have accumulated album sales exceeding 80 million worldwide, 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 and countless sold out gigs across the globe.
As I had never experienced a MÖTLEY CRÜE show before, I didn’t know what to expect but let me tell you, the band has really lived up to its reputation for being over-the-top. It is definitely a one-of-a-kind, only-in-Vegas experience. The show is an incredibly interactive production unlike anything seen in their previous shows. The second you walk into the property, you enter a “Carnival of Sins” extravaganza with stilt walkers, fun house mirrors on your way to the box office and even the hotel bar is draped to look like the inside of a circus tent. That is just the beginning because the show gets crazier! Mötley Crüe in Sin City features fire breathers, acrobats and Tommy Lee’s 360 degree drum coaster, where he literally plays his drums while riding a rollercoaster upside down. AMAZING!
The show is a must-see and even if you’re not a fan, you’ll leave as one.
