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 GrouponLive deal: for $19, you get one general-admission lawn ticket to see Mötley Crüe, with guests Poison and New York Dolls, at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel on Sunday, July 17, at 7 p.m. (a $29.50 value before fees, or up to a $38.50 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 6 p.m., and tickets will be available for pickup at the box office. Parking is included in the ticket price.
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 on the spacious lawn at the PNC Bank Arts Center, which sports enough space for ample throngs of fans to revel in the music and discuss the etiquette of shouting politely. Guests can tote along lawn chairs that tower no more than 9 inches above the ground, providing convenient body parking and non-view-obscuring comfort.
