Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is slamming fans who were busy taking selfies in the front row during the band’s final show in Miami on Wednesday.
“Stop taking selfies and be AT the concert idiots. #morons #FrontRow #Miami” tweeted Sixx after the concert at the American Airlines Arena.
“People have their ear/eye glued to their phones,” responded a fan. “No longer interacting with live people in front of them. Self-absorbed society.”
The fan’s reply prompted Sixx to tweet, “Missing living in the moment at a concert is a crime.”
Various Motley Crue supporters on Twitter report Sixx was seen spitting on fans in the front row during the Miami show, with one posting a video clip of the bassist’s interaction with the offenders.
Drummer Tommy Lee added to the sense that something was amiss in Miami, posting, “I want to apologize for the shitshow tonight! Well ...I played good!”, to which a fan replied “aftr 31 yrs and 19 shws +/ur solo tour...u need 2 talk 2 the bass guy...spitting on the audience throughout the show? not happy.”
At press time, Sixx had not commented or responded to the spitting accusations.
Motley Crue recently launched the last North American leg of their farewell tour as they head down the home stretch of final live appearances.
The group will wrap up their live career with three shows in late December at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, closing things out on New Year’s Eve.
