The members of Mötley Crüe are joining the likes of Celine Dion and Cher and heading for Las Vegas.
The band is gearing up for a three-week stint at the Hard Rock Hotel, they revealed on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.”
"We're the first hard rock band ever to have a residency [in Vegas]," Vince Neil said. "There's been bands like Santana and Elton John and these kinds of acts, but for us, Mötley Crüe, we're all about theater and about over-the-top stage show, so it's a perfect fit for us."
According to a statement, the guys will begin their stint at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on February 3, and they’ll perform through February 19.
Vocalist Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee aren’t revealing Sin City details, but according to the statement, the “interactive Vegas experience” will “supersede the band’s high standard of production.”
Tickets start at $45 (plus various service fees), and are on sale now. Tickets can be obtained at the Hard Rock Box Office, Ticketmaster, or Motley.com.
