You know, I wish I was actually seeing Motley Crue. Unfortunately, my concert was the first of the apparent many that drummer Tommy Lee was unable to play in. Due to a terrible case of tendinitis, Lee hasn’t been able to play in any of the shows since October 14th, which is definitely a huge bummer. I mean, it’s the last tour ever, and you’re missing out on one-fourth of the band! However, you’ve got to sympathize with him- he’s made it clear that this is literally killing him, and has made a small speech at every concert to let everyone know how badly he wishes he could be out playing. I am extremely impressed with Glen Sobel, however. He deserves major props for my concert especially. Not only did he play two shows in one night (and so far every night from then), but he learned Motley Crue’s entire set in about one afternoon.
A phenomenal job was done by both Motley Crue and Alice Cooper. The set lists are what you would imagine; Alice played hits such as Feed My Frankenstein, Ballad of Dwight Fry and Poison, while Motley Crue played their biggest hits too, including Girls, Girls, Girls, Shout At The Devil, Live Wire, and closed the show with an emotional Home Sweet Home. Alice Cooper, as usual, had a great stage show- filled with all the fake deaths you could ever want to see in one night. The same applies for Motley Crue, they used a hell of a lot of pyro and flew across the crowd on more than one occasion. Such a great show slightly compensates for the fact that we were missing our drummer.
Thankfully, I’ve seen them three times. If not, I would have definitely been a little bit upset if I didn’t get to see the band and the show in it’s entirety. They were unable to the the drum solo, as well as the Cruecifly. But when it all comes down to it, there’s nothing that the fans can do except hope for a speedy recovery.
