NEWS / Motley Crue ended their career just short of 35 years after it began with a final show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Not long into the show, lead singer Vince Neil said "This is the last time you’ll see the four of us. Back in 1981 you got four teenagers roaming the streets of Hollywood, eating, drinking, smoking, f---ing. And here we f---ing are, 34 years later." He then got choked up and had to turn around for a few seconds before saying "Most of all, I want to thank you motherf---ers for coming out and spending New Year’s Eve with us. Now let’s get to the music."
Their set included many of the fan's favorites and very little change from the shows over the year-and-a-half of the final tour although the order was in pretty constant flux. They opened with Girls, Girls, Girls on the final night but ended with the song they had been using all tour, Home Sweet Home.
Only one thing out of the ordinary happened with Tommy Lee's drums getting suspended upside down, with Lee attached, during his drum solo. The crew had to climb up the roller coaster to get Lee down and things working again.
The set list:
A concert film, with a mix of their shows from the final run at the Staples Center, will be released in the future. (Bron: Music News)
