The original hard-rock band incrusted itself 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 $17, you get a general-admission lawn ticket to see Mötley Crüe, with guests Poison and New York Dolls, at Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood on Sunday, July 10, at 7 p.m. (a $26 value before fees, or up to a $33 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 6 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 New York Dolls supplying rock-filled decibels in volume enough to satisfy the most voracious eardrums.
Attendees can surf the crisp sound waves emitted by all three groups at Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood, which sports enough space for ample throngs of fans to revel in the music and debate the future of college sports. With today's deal, fans can park bodies anywhere on the open lawn behind the seats. Guests on the lawn are free to stand or bring blankets, on which they can lie back and search for clouds in the shape of Martin Van Buren.
