Motley Crue singer to launch an Arena Football League team in Las Vegas

Motley Crue singer Vince Neil has reportedly received approval to launch an Arena Football League team in Las Vegas.

Neil’s pal Robin Leach at the Las Vegas Sun reports the expansion team will be in place in time for the 2015 season.

Vince has already asked for AFL approval of Las Vegas Outlaws as the team’s name to join other clubs such as the Arizona Rattlers, Portland Thunder, L.A. Kiss (owned by a group that includes Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS), New Orleans VooDoo and Pittsburgh Power.

Last month, Neil signed on as a part-owner of the Jacksonville Sharks of the Arena Football League.

There’s no word yet if the singer’s partial ownership in the Jacksonville franchise will remain once the Las Vegas team is in place.

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.

The band will release a new song, “All Bad Things Must Come To An End”, as part of a new greatest hits package that will surface in sync with the tour.
