Motley Crue: Vegas residency 'a perfect fit'
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.
Will you be putting Crüe tickets on your holiday wish list?

Will the casino be taking bets on how long this will last/who ends up back in rehab first?
They need a hype man, like Flava Flav. And probably should consider doing some drugs.
I agree with the imbecile. Their music doesnt rhyme or anything. Dont they even know what rap or hophop is? Plus they have never won the BET awards or been on Sout Train.
yeah. motley crue are the worst rappers ever.
"first hard rock band to have residency"? Ever heard of STEEL PANTHER!!!??! Rocking Vegas AND L.A every week for hella years..
If you build it, they will come.
I herad that guy named Motley night be a doooodooooo eater.
Then him and I should have dinner some time. Maybe I can "cook" for him, a nice Pittsburgh Platter? Then he can give me an Alabama Hot Pocket!
just another lame boy band
All their songs sound like they are immitating Madonna.
Um Observer and Jenny both of you are idiots. Motley Crue has been around for years. Justin Beber and Lady GaGa arent even in the same catergory as Motley Crue and second Motley has been around a long time long before Berber and GaGa even existed.
I agree with you Observer. They are just Justin Bieber wannabee. Always copying his and Lady GaGas stuff.
I will hv to goog motley crue. I hv never heard of them.
They're hacks. Nobody cares.
Really? For over THIRTY YEARS? You're such a jack hole, no wonder your wife seeks the company of other men.
Longevity does not equal relevance. Ask Wayne Newton, Barry Manilow or Celine Dion about that.
PAT BOONE RULES.
It is spelled lesbean you idjit.
Vince may not live here, but his tatt shops are every where here.
I dont like their music. It sounds like lesbian music to me.
I like they way they syncronize their dance moves, reminds me of glades night and the pips.
Dude...is that supposed to be a joke? If it is....you're a complete idiot. If you're serious....you're a complete jacka$$....
