    Rock legends Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, and Tommy Lee, otherwise known as Mötley Crüe, put on an incredible show last night at the KFC Yum! Center. It was bound to be an impressive performance considering that the current tour they are on will be their last. Their final tour, presented by Dodge and created by Live Nation, will run all the way through 2015, and special guests Alice Cooper and The Raskins are accompanying them all over the globe on this amazing journey to the end.

    The band played so many of their greatest hits, such as Wild Side, Primal Scream, Smokin' in the Boys Room, Dr. Feelgood, Girls, Girls, Girls, Shout at the Devil, and Kickstart My Heartto name a few. The set was literally on fire as flames flew out from behind the band, and Nikki Sixx was shooting fire from his bass as well. Tommy Lee also did his memorable spinning drum solo across a structure that extended toward the middle of the arena. Vince Neil rocked with his vocals as he moved across the stage, and Mick Mars played with such intensity that I thought one of his guitar strings would snap. It seems that Mötley Crüe is truly giving it their all to make this last tour their best tour.

    I had only ever seen live performances from Mötley Crüe on the internet until last night, so I was more than excited to attend the show. I had so many great bands to listen to during my childhood thanks to my parents who grew up during the 70's and 80's, and Mötley Crüe was one of them. It was such a privilege to see the band put on such a fantastic show, and it's even more special because this is their final tour together. I could tell that the band was feeling nostalgic because Nikki Sixx took a moment to talk about how the band came together, and he even emphasized that it may not have happened if he had stayed with his former band. Additionally, the band came out and performed their last song of the night, which was Home Sweet Home. Two screens above the main stage showed the audience old photos and headlines of the band throughout the years. Lastly, Vince Neil said that we were all together last night to celebrate 33 years of Mötley Crüe's music, and I think the entire arena did just that.
