Motley Crue singer becomes part owner of AFL’s Jacksonville Sharks

Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has become part owner of the Jacksonville Sharks of Arena Football League.

“It’s a great action sport growing in popularity with every game,” Neil tells his pal Robin Leach at the Las Vegas Sun. “There are some incredible players. I love the game.”

Neil says he has plans to move the franchise to his adopted hometown of Las Vegas in the next two years.

“It will be perfect to have an AFL team in Las Vegas,” he adds. “I sense the city would love it. I know that I will because it’s on my home turf.”

Neil’s ownership venture into the AFL follows the recent purchase and launch of the LA KISS by KISS members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.

Vince and Motley Crue will launch their farewell trek – billed as “The Final Tour” – on July 2 in Grand Rapids, Michigan with guest Alice Cooper.
