MÖTLEY CRÜE has landed at position No. 5 on Billboard.com's "Hot Tours" list of top-grossing tours. The band sold 32,083 tickets (out of a total capacity of 36,570) for its 12 Las Vegas concerts — which were held at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel during an 18-day span from September 18 through October 6 — with revenue topping $3.1 million.
The fall shows, dubbed "Evening In Hell", were an all-new production, designed exclusively for The Joint in partnership with AEG Live.
"There is no show like this. There never has been, and there never will be," MÖTLEY CRÜE lead singer Vince Neil told Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun. "You've seen video fire from other rock acts on tour, but never the real thing."
Vince continued: "It's more than any rock group has ever produced or attempted. It really is entering the depths of hell. There's fire all around and fire coming down from above.
“There's no question this is the most dangerous theatrics ever created and far more than anything we expected. But, hey, this is Vegas, and we do bigger, bolder, badder, sleazier here better than any other place on Earth.
"We have the best fire tech experts in the world. This is so over the top, the only thing cool is what we do! Basically, we're setting everything on fire in a way that's never been done before."
