I'd love to make this work. Me, Motley Crue and Las Vegas. We just go together so well.

Roll call: which glammers are making the trip to Vegas for this?

I did the trip and show last year and it was good...but I'm crued out I think...seen them alot of times in the last 10 years...not saying I won't go...I do love Vegas and the rock shows myself...a good show at Vinyl or HOB is always good too...

Yall know I love the Crue but they need to either call it a day, or change the frickin setlist. I despise nostalgia acts & thats what theyve become!

Just saw them Saturday in A.C. & still trying to convince a buddy of mine to do the trip to Vegas in the fall! \m/ \m/

Like Toddwiggy, I'm a bit Crued-out. I've seen them 6 or 7 times in the past 10 years and as much as I love them, I don't feel any requirement to see them again.

I do, however, disagree that they've become solely a nostalgia act, though. Unlike Poison who has been playing the exact same songs and same set for the past 10 years, Motley actually plays new (and good) songs, and they do mix up their set list. There are also lots of kids in the crowd, and the vibe is generally more current than for a lot of the older bands.

Certainly not for $120 a ticket.
$25, I'd consider it, but since Vince only squawks every 5th word, I'll only offer them every 5th dollar.

Seriously guys. I've seen you since your very first club gig. You're a shadow of the band you once were. Hang it up & go out with a shred of dignity.

Yeah, $120 per ticket is ridiculous. I paid $15 tops to see them on the Dr. feelgood tour. That's good enough for me. Although Vegas is an awesome town!

I feel that that they know its time to call it a day,,they feel it. I'm done with the 2013 Crue.I will always, ALWAYS love and respect the 'Too Fast For Love' Leathur Records fckn' CRUE!. The album that I bought at Rocket Records for $3.99 a million years ago..ohh the memories!!

I saw MC last week Thursday May 23rd, at the Event Center, at Turning Stone, in Verona NY. Deb & I had 10th row and my son had 2nd row on Mick Mars side. I was very impressed. Vince sang 99% on the money. The band was tight. The mix was great.

Why do you have to be "done" with a band that still kicks ass and puts on a *gasp* a show ?

And yes we've all spent $10 to see our bands, but there comes a time when you want to see them in a spectacular place or time and you have to pony up more $$.. Big deal, I'm older and make a little more scratch where I don't need my paper route money to save for two weeks to buy Shout at the Devil at my local dime store.

Sorry, I don't want them to hang it up and you shouldn't either. As My Cousin Vinny says ~ your argument holds no water :)

GNR, I agree with you that MC shouldn't have to hang it up until they're ready. It's their band, and their decision. That said, I too can make decisions: one being the decision as a consumer to not reward ridiculous ticket prices by paying them. In 1989, I paid about $15 to see MC in a major venue on a major tour. A $120 ticket price in 2013 reflects an 8-fold increase. Given that, in general, many other goods in 2013 are costing 2 to 4 times what they did in 1989, an 8-fold increase in ticket prices is nothing more than price-gouging, and I refuse to buy into it.

bob is absolutely correct. that's (part of the reason) why tom keifer's tickets are about $25 (with "handling" fees, to boot). He does have meet-n-greets for a little more, but so what...it might be worth it for the fan that never met him and wants some one-on-one face time with him.

I think MC's best tour was the Carnival of Sins tour...period. They did it right then and therefore, I, like bob, won't be going to see this tour; and just last week, they played two nights at the Sands Casino Bethlehem which is almost within walking distance from my home and I "refused [to not] buy into it."

I know, shameless tom keifer plug. somebody save me.

I THINK I'll go -- If I got the $$$. Dealio is, I've seen 'em 6 times in the last 5 years. I gotta agree with, brace yourselves, BK Allday -- DRAMATICALLY change the setlist every night you're on stage in Vegas.

Take a cue from your idols, Cheap Trick. They are constantly changing it up for EVERY show (except when they did that Vegas stint as Sargeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band a couple years back).

I just found out recently i might make it to one or two shows in vegas. ive seen them three times and ill see them three hundred more. yes some songs stay the same but they mix it up a bit, and their stage shows are over the top all the time!! long live rock n roll. motley forever will rule no matter how many times i myself see them. but thats my own opinion though.
