From September 18th to October 6th, MÖTLEY CRÜE will headline their second residency in Las Vegas, NV at The Joint inside The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. This series of 12 special shows is now being referred to as, An Intimate Evening In Hell.
In other Crüe news, vocalist VINCE NEIL recently spoke with Ed Condran of Atlantic City Weekly; an excerpt from their chat reads as follows:
“This is a brotherhood,” says Vince. “You have your ups and downs. But we always make it through. We love making music with each other. It’s pretty simple. Anybody who has been in a band for a while can relate to what I’m talking about. We’ve had our share of rough patches. I was out of the band for a few years and so was Tommy (Lee, drummer), but we all know that this band works best when it’s the four of us together. We were younger when we went through some things and I think it helps that we’re all older and wiser.”
But many of the bands, which enjoyed considerable success during the 1980s, along with the Crüe, aren’t playing big halls like Neil and company.
“It’s different with us because when we come around it’s like the circus is back in town,” Neil says. “Maybe that’s why we still play big rooms. Fans know what they get with us. It’s a high-powered, fun show.”
Wild rumors have run rampant since the band’s salad days. Neil chuckled when asked about what he considers to be the most ridiculous belief among Crüe fans.
“It’s that we don’t get along,” Neil says. “We laugh about that stuff. People try to figure out our lives. They see that we each have our own tour bus and they think, ‘They don’t get along.’ We travel that way because we can afford to. Think about it. Nikki (Sixx, bassist) has his kids and so does Tommy. We all get along great. If that weren’t so, we wouldn’t be doing this.”
