The notorious Motley Crue will be back in Des Moines at the Wells Fargo Arena on February 17, 2009. Ticket prices range from $29.50 to $95.00 (ouch!). They go on sale this Saturday.
I did see the band when they were here in 2005 and the show was fun. The crowd is a little lame, as much of it is an older crowd that prefers to sit rather than headbang to Shout at the Devil, but there are still plenty of hot chicks and the occasional younger generation of fans.
The new album isn't bad either, which is saying quite a lot for a band that falls under the glam-rock/hair-metal genre (a category which hasn't had much good material since the 80's).
Here is the video for Motherfucker of the Year, the most recent single off the new Crue album. A little poppy and contrived yes, but it makes for some mindless enjoyment.
