At the halfway point of Mötley Crüe’s 12-show residency, vocalist Vince Neil says it’s going well. “There’s a lot going on in this show–a lot of fire,” he says about the Crüe’s second residency at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, which is a “completely different show” than last year’s. The previous one was themed Mötley Crüe in Sin City; this one is titled Mötley Crüe Invites You to an Intimate Evening in Hell. Both feature eternal hits “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Dr. Feelgood.” This one benefits from the addition of flamethrowers and 30-foot fireballs. Neil, who is busy expanding his Strip Club/restaurant empire with the upcoming opening of Tatuado Bar B Q at Circus Circus, says, “We’re just having fun right now.” This was especially true when a female fan kissed him at a recent performance. So what does Neil recommend you wear to Mötley Crüe’s three remaining shows (Oct. 4-6, $45 and up)? “A Mötley Crüe T-shirt.”
