Motley Crue to host Las Vegas residency in 2013?

This past February, Motley Crue became the first hard rock band to host a Las Vegas residency.

The group performed a three-week series of shows at the city’s Hard Rock Hotel.

Now, Crue frontman Vince Neil says things went so well the first time, the band have been invited back to do it again.

A long-term resident of Sin City, Vince was asked by Grammy magazine if Vegas was is becoming a more rock and roll city.

“Yeah. I mean, Santana has a residency at the [House of Blues],” says Neil. “It's just started opening up more and more. We've been asked to do another residency next year.”

Will the Crue do it?

“I'd like to,” says the singer. “Every night sold out. We'd have 4,000 people every night. I started asking, ‘Who's here from out of town?’ And 90 percent of the people were. There's just so much stuff to do here if you're a rock fan. There's great shopping, great strip clubs, great restaurants. And the restaurants have gambling.”

The Crue are currently on a summer tour of North America with KISS.
