The original hard-rock band incrusted themselves in cumbersome granite, marble, and obsidian to create music too weighty for lighter rockers to perform. Delve into elemental forms of rock with today's Groupon: for $43, you get a ticket to see Mötley Crüe plus guests Poison and the New York Dolls—part of KDKB-FM's 40th anniversary concert series—at Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion on Friday, June 17, at 7 p.m. (a $71 value before fees, or up to an $85.50 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees). Groupon holders will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis in sections 201, 205, 302, and 304. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Mötley Crüe has rocked stages for three decades with its signature mélange of intense guitar, heavy sound, and over-the-top stage outfits. Singer Vince Neil roars out lyrics over the shred-filled soundscape created by guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx, and drummer Tommy Lee, creating memorable tunes that resound in the minds of listeners like the ringing of heavily tattooed bells.
The concert also features Poison and influential special guest the New York Dolls, who supplies rock-filled decibels in volume enough to satisfy the most voracious listeners. Attendees can gorge their ears on the crisp sound waves emitted by all three groups at the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion, an outdoor venue with a partially covered pavilion space intended to shield heads from inclement weather and the withering glares of music-hating birds. Some seats may not be under the pavilion's shelter.
