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 $24, you get one ticket to see Mötley Crüe, plus guests Poison and the New York Dolls, at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park on Friday, July 1, at 7 p.m. (a $30.50 value, or up to a $48.85 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 the New York Dolls, who supplies 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 the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre. One of the largest outdoor venues in the Midwest, the venue provides ample space, letting concertgoers move, shake, or send semaphore signals to distant friends without claustrophobia. Groupon-holders will be seated in sections 201–208 on a first-come, first-served basis after picking up tickets at Will Call.
