MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil and his solo band completed a successful South American tour with a sold-out appearance in Sao Paulo, Brazil on February 27. The trek included four concerts in four countries in as many days and included additional shows in Santiago, Chile; Santa Cruz, Bolivia; and Buenos Aires, Argentina. The tour's promoter, Gabe Reed, commented that "the response by the fans to this tour was amazing. We had sold out shows at each stop and Vince was in great form. Now we are off to spend some beach time in Aruba!"
Video footage from each concert can be seen below.
"Tattoos And Tequila", the title track of Vince Neil's forthcoming solo album, and the accompanying video are available for free download at www.vinceneil.net.
"Tattoos And Tequila" is expected to be released in early May. The CD was recorded with bassist Dana Strum and Jeff Blando (both of SLAUGHTER) and drummer Zoltan Chaney. At least two cover tracks were reportedly laid down during the sessions — CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL's "Who'll Stop The Rain?" and SEX PISTOLS' "No Feelings".
In a recent interview with The News Tribune, Vince stated about the upcoming CD's title, "It's rock 'n' roll. That's it. It has nothing to do with MÖTLEY CRÜE. Tattoos and tequila is basically my life."
Vince told Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun last week that his voice is in great shape as he approaches his 50th birthday, and although the CRÜE is not touring again until early summer, he will be on the road with his solo band until then.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Neil is also writing a book akin to MÖTLEY's autobiography, "The Dirt", with Esquire writer Mike Sager.
