Sin City residency
If you missed Motley Crue serving out their residency in Las Vegas, don’t worry … they’re at it again. The band has announced they’re bringing their depravity back to Sin City for another 12-day run. That’s gonna be later this year between September 18 and October 6. With the new residency, they’ll have an entirely new set design. In other Crue news, the band may have ruffled some feathers the other day at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. A Twitter message posted by bassist Nikki Sixx shows a trashed bed in the middle of the hotel’s parking lot. The bed was allegedly dropped out of an 11th story window in an obvious publicity stunt to drum up interest in their new residency stint.
