MÖTLEY CRÜE – front and centre, that’s the only way to see these heavy metal legends play after 30 years last night at the Entertainment Centre, Sydney.
The hard-living legends, Nikki Sixx (Bass guitar), Tommy Lee (Drums), Mick Mars (Lead guitar), and Vince Neil (vocals/guitar) may look weathered, but these guys aged between 49-60 years old know how to still rock with the best.
Live Music Photographers were not there for a professional role, but for strictly entertainment purposes. The only way to really see and feel MÖTLEY CRÜE play was to make my way up to the front and centre. By the end of the first song, I was up there.
The next 1 1/2 hours I was guided by a wave of people head banging, jumping up and down with ‘Devil Horns’, pushed in the back, kicked in the legs, pinched by people trying to squeeze into a gap no bigger than a tuna can. Not to mention having other peoples sweat being rubbed on my face and body, strangers arm pits in my mouth. But hey, like one guy said, “are we here for fucking Cold Play?”
Everything from Tommy’s roller coaster drum set, Mick’s look of ’death warmed up’, Nikki’s saliva spitting antics into the crowd and Vince’s “where’s all the fucking good looking women at” attitude, there was no better way to see these guys than up close and personal.
Sex, Drugs and rock’n roll, MÖTLEY CRÜE, what more can you say about these guys??
