The Dirt: Mötley Crüe in Sin City at the Joint at The Hard Rock

The one and only Mötley Crüe will be mounting a temporary residency - dubbed Mötley Crüe in Sin City - at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas in February 2012. This will NOT be a Crue touring show stopping in Vegas for three weeks but instead a wholly new experience that will be mounted at the Hard Rock and only the Hard Rock for a very limited but extended period of time. Imagine if you will, Showgirls meets Motley Crue, a rock n' roll redefinition of the Vegas spectacular. Did I forget to mention there will be boobies?

The show is pretty much still in a conceptual stage with the Crue and four producers culling ideas into a Cirque du Soleil inspired 360 degree interactive experience that will encompass the entirety of The Joint at the Hard Rock. The band will in the pit with the audience on the stage and surrounding areas.

Currently, plans call for rehearsals to begin in early January with the residency running from February 3rd to 19th, three week run of shows in February 2012 with the option to expand. Pre sale tickets start at $41 (plus tax and tags - cheap!) are on sale NOW.

Here's the fancy promo they put up on the YouTube:

Comments & Discussion:

I have the same theory about Mick Mars that I do Keith Richards. They both stopped shooting heroin years ago and just started shoot formaldehyde to keep themselves preserved so they can stay young since they're both apparently going to live forever. Dudes look rough.

I'll happily take 11:1 on Girls Girls Girls. That's almost like a sucker bet...

HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA I'll put a dollar down on that Razzle bet, just to have the stub as a memento........ and then have it autographed by Monroe, Yaffa and McCoy !!!!

PS : Mick can barely stand up and Vince never could hit a single note so, yep, I'll pay 70 bucks for this "extravaganza".

Girls, Girls, Girls is part of their encore, at least it was when myself, Donnymac66, Spyder and Donnymac66's gal saw them at Red Rock.

Can I get some odds on Vince Neil actually singing an entire song and not having to have the backup singers or the crowd sing for him?

I would rather see Poison have a residency, as based on their performance as the middle act when we saw Motley Crue back in June, they're playing because they enjoy doing it and aren't out there to collect a paycheck....

I hope that Dangerous Toys will open.

The thought of being in the same room with Mick Mars is frightening. Maybe they should schedule this for Halloween instead?

Unfortunately, there will be no opening bands... but there will be an intermission!

Given that this is going to be choreographed, I'm betting on the same set every night with heavy emphasis on the hits.

I still have Dangerous Toy's first album somewhere... on cassette.

The Razzle odds... ouch!

I agree with vespajet... the odds of Vince Neil actually singing an entire song?

I think this is going to be a full on rock-m-roll blowout. Looks like they want to use the fact that they don't have to take the stage down every night to do some really crazy stuff. Their last couple of tours have gotten pretty elaborate.

I love the residency idea but not the cold weather timing. I'd really want to wrap some quality pool time around a night like this, especially for the day-after detox.
