The original hard-rock band incrusted itself in cumbersome granite, marble, and obsidian to create music too weighty for lighter rockers to perform.

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 New York Dolls supplying rock-filled decibels in enough volume to satisfy the most voracious eardrums. Attendees can surf the crisp sound waves emitted by all three groups at the Save Mart Center, which sports enough space for ample throngs of fans to revel in the music and discuss the etiquette of shouting politely.
