Motley Crue singer talks Las Vegas residency

Motley Crue kick off their Las Vegas residency at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on February 3.

The Crue become the first hard rock group to play a residency in Sin City at this level, and singer Vince Neil talked to about how thrilled he is with the project.

“For me being a Vegas resident, it’s a dream come true,” says Vince. “For one thing, it’s really cool to be able to put on a show that we’ve always dreamed about.”

“It’s just not going to be your regular show where the stage is set up on one end of the building, and the rest of it’s seats,”
Neil explains. “We’re going to pretty much encompass the whole venue. We could be playing in the back of the place, above you, on the side of you. We’re using the latest technology in visuals. We really made the effort to do something that no one’s ever really seen before. I don’t want to give away everything, but the technology that we’re using is pretty advanced. I think a lot of people are going to be blown away with the show.”

The Crue and the Hard Rock have teamed up to add some extra touches to complete the experience for fans.

“We’re really decking out the Hard Rock…We’re putting in a lot of memorabilia in there besides what they already have,” Vince says. “We’re taking stuff out of our houses, and [the Hard Rock] is going to put it in display cases on the way into The Joint. So it’s kinda cool.”

“It’s just going to be one of the biggest shows that Mötley’s ever done and one of the most extravagant. If you’ve seen Mötley before, it’s a pretty tall bill. So, it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
