Mötley Crüe will become the first hard rock band to do a Las Vegas residency when they take over the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in February. Dubbed “Mötley Crüe in Sin City,” the residency will include 12 shows between February 3rd and February 19th.
In a conference call to announce the shows, frontman Vince Neil promised “over-the-top craziness. This is Las Vegas. Vegas is based on big, big shows,” Neil said. “This show we are putting together right now is something that we have never done in our lives. This is an interactive show we’re putting on – it’s going to encompass the whole venue, not just the stage that we’re standing on – a 40- by 60-foot stage. This is going to take over the whole place.”
Drummer Tommy Lee said on the call that they’ve imagined doing a show like this for years. “We’ve gone through a lot of the big Vegas production shows and we all have talked about it many times going, ‘God, could you imagine if we could only get our hands on this kind of an opportunity what we could do with it.'”
