Mötley Crüe Promise 'Full Blown' Vegas Cabaret Show!

Mötley Crüe

In the midst of the controversy concerning Mötley Crüe's forthcoming "cabaret" appearances in the Hard Rock Casino, Las Vegas, Mick Mars has attempted to ease fans apprehensions by promising a full blown Crüe performance.

During a recent interview with Metal Express Radio, guitarist Mick Mars offered a few clues of what to expect. "They [the fans] would like us to do more of what we did in Red White & Crüe," explained Mars, "with the tent circus thing and having clowns and that kinda stuff running around, and doing that kinda stuff. Which is fine, ’cause I love dwarf tossing."

Asked what made the band decide to head to Vegas at this point in their career, Mars replied, "I think a lot of bands are trying to do a short residency there. This could work out to be a lot of fun, or it could work out to be a disaster, I don’t know yet. We’re doing it at a really good time, and they’re going to give us a lot of room. I don’t want to say I’m apprehensive about it, but I’m hoping it opens up new doors for us."

Regarding new material, Mars echoed Tommy Lee’s recent comments about the band possibly regrouping for another album after they get off the road.

Mötley Crüe have just finished their UK shows with Steel Panther and Def Leppard, which also courted controversy and had British rock fans asking why Def Leppard were on a bill with two heavy rock bands? Certainly on the UK dates Crüe and Steel Panther seem to have been the crowd favourites with large portions of the crowd leaving gigs before Def Leppard took the stage. Reports of Leppards performances haven't been great and Joe Elliot has constantly used the excuse that he 'had a cold' to explain the sub-standard performances.
