VINCE NEIL Forced To Cancel Performance At American Drag Racing League World Finals

MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil was forced to cancel his featured performance at the American Drag Racing League (ADRL) world finals on Saturday, October 23 in Ennis, Texas when two tornadoes struck the Texas Motorplex racetrack and forced over 30 thousand race fans to evacuate the venue. The promoter of Neil's concert, Gabe Reed, commented, "We did everything possible to make the concert happen but in the end mother nature had other plans. In the consideration of the safety of the fans, Vince, the ADRL and I mutually agreed that the best decision was to call the concert off. We look forward to next year's ADRL season and are excited about our partnership with the ADRL to produce concerts at next year's racing events."

A veteran rocker of more than 30 years, Neil has been the boisterous front man for MÖTLEY CRÜE, one of the most well-known rock bands in history. Neil's latest solo effort, "Tattoos & Tequila", has received rave reviews and his autobiography of the same title was released last month.

MÖTLEY CRÜE has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide and Neil has been at the forefront of that extreme lifestyle while performing classic hits like "Girls, Girls, Girls", "Kickstart My Heart" and "Dr. Feelgood". Neil has long enjoyed a special relationship with the racing community and he jumped at the opportunity to perform in front of a huge audience at the Texas Motorplex.

Now in its sixth year, the ADRL is widely recognized as the nation's premier sanctioning body for the sport of eighth-mile drag racing thanks to its innovative business model.

Drag racing is regarded as one of the fastest growing sports in the world and the ADRL is at the forefront of that movement. Its unique complimentary ticket approach has led to unprecedented growth and capacity crowds at each of the 10 events on its annual national tour, and mixing rock and roll and drag racing is sure to attract a raucous crowd.
