Motley Crue in Seattle: Blistering Hour Long Set.... Lucky Portland is Next!
Yes, for you Crue-Haters, you missed a major set in Seattle... probably sittin' back on your fat azz belching beer...
When the Stones have such an EXCEPTIONAL band opening for them, it's raises their game too, as we've seen time and again...
Those of you lucky enough to be catching the Crue / Stones in Portland and then Metallica / Stones in San Francisco, please report back.
Here's a review from someone who actually saw the show...
Perhaps Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe, known as Frank Ferranno growing up here in Seattle, was referring to that 1965 Arena concert when he said he couldn't get into a Stones show here when he was young because he had "a pocketful of joints."
"Tonight I got a pocketful of joints, and there ain't nothin' they can do about it!" he gloated.
The bad-boy band of the 1980s opened with a blistering hourlong set marked by pillars of fire — ignited to Tommy Lee's drumbeats — a dwarf in a monster costume and three leggy strippers.
Introduced as "The Masters of Disaster," they blasted off with "Shout At The Devil." Lead singer Vince Neil, in black and white leather, roamed the big stage. Black-clad Mick Mars, in a top hat with a skull and crossbones, long black coat and Frankenstein boots, moved little but was impressive on guitar.
Neil let loose a blue streak of expletives when a motorcycle sound effect malfunctioned during "Girls Girls Girls," but the rest of the set, including extended versions of "Dr. Feelgood" and "Same Old Situation," went smoothly.
"It's just that demon life has got me in it's sway..."
