Motley Crue Return to the Strip with New Vegas Residency!

The ringleaders of rock, Motley Crue, have officially announced their new Las Vegas Residency, which will be invading Sin City this September!  Serving as a follow-up to their remarkable and historic 2012 residency, in which Motley Crue became the first rock band to host an extended stay event in Las Vegas, the band will return to the strip with their notorious, extreme, and over-the-top antics that stand as a must-see for their millions of fans.  This cluster of special shows will include an all-new production for Motley Crue, and the band is pushing their own envelope and offering plenty of surprise elements for fans to go with their hit-heavy set of iconic rock anthems.  Motley Crue will once again take over the stage at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for an exclusive twelve show engagement September 18th through October 6th, with tickets currently on sale and going fast.  The full list of dates can be found below.

By far, the most exhilarating part of Motley Crue’s live show over the past couple years has come from Pearl artist, and rock’s biggest drumming superstar, Tommy Lee and his 360 Rollercoaster EPro Live drum set!  For the past 30 years, Tommy Lee has stood atop the rock drumming podium, with his exhilarating live show and iconic drumming entertaining millions and inspiring some of today’s finest drummers.  Upon joining the Pearl roster back in 2010, Tommy chose the innovative technology of Pearl’s EPro Live drum set, turning to the sounds in Pearl’s Redbox module for his preferred tones, and the real feel of the Tru Trac heads to complete his setup.  Putting the EPro Live through an even bigger test than imagined, Tommy then decided to mount his massive Pearl EPro kit onto a rollercoaster track, which flips Tommy around and back throughout his solo.  The full specs on Tommy’s EPro Live drum set are as follow:
