Nikki Sixx has gone on record to say that Motley Crue‘s residency in Las Vegas, which will launch in February and run for three weeks, is only scratching the surface of what he believes “will be the biggest probably four to five years of the band’s career.”
Things are thrilling in the Motley Crue camp, as the band gears up for the first-ever rock band residency in Las Vegas. However, despite all the hoopla and history making coinciding with the Feb. 3-19 stay in Sin City, singer Vince Neil said he is considering splitting from the band after the Vegas shows wrap.
Word on the street is that Motley Crue will have their own Las Vegas show starting in 2012. Move over Siegfried and Roy and Celine Dion. They will be the first hard rock group to get their own Vegas show!
As expected, Motley Crue vocalist Vince Neil has pleaded guilty in Las Vegas Justice Court to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. The charge stemmed from an incident last March in which Neil allegedly harassed his ex-girlfriend Alicia Jacobs and her friends after a show at the Las Vegas Hilton. Had Neil not pleaded guilty, he would have faced a more serious charge of battery constituting domestic violence.
Vince Neil has agreed to a deal which will have the Motley Crue singer plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct and pay a $1,000 fine related to an alleged domestic violence incident involving his ex-girlfriend, former Las Vegas television entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs. In return, county prosecutors in Las Vegas will drop one more serious count of domestic battery Neil was facing.
During Motley Crue’s show on Saturday at the Outlaw Jam in Maryland, Nikki Sixx jumped into the crowd and went after a guy who was apparently videotaping the band’s set. See video of the incident after the jump.
Its been about a week since Motley and Poison started their tour in Dallas, TX. A couple weeks ago I told you to get your tickets for this "must see" event. I am sure some of you didn't take my word for it and now you have to relive the concert through YouTube videos. I found some great footage of the performance that were popping up. I sure did want to go to the concert for the spectacle alone -- pyrotechnics were claimed to be second to none -- but then the performance would be an "ear-gasim." No so lucky me I had to work and didn't get see the epic concert of the year -- here are the videos of this show in our own back yard. Wanna see a roller-coaster on stage -- after the jump!
Here's some audio from Nikki Sixx on Sixx Sense where he talks about why Motley Crue does not do encores at the shows. Pretty interesting background here on why they think an encore at a concert is a waste of time. Audio after the jump.
