Motley Crue Add High-Flying ‘Transformer Stage’ Stunt to Farewell Tour
Tommy Lee's not the only member of Motley Crue who can fly anymore. The band has added a new trick to their already explosive stage show, one that finds both Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil flying high over the crowd during their main set finale.
As you can see in the video above, the band's performance of "Kickstart My Heart" now concludes with Sixx and Neil being lifted off the stage on special platforms, flying high into the air and over the crowd. Of course, while this is happening confetti is flying everywhere and enough pyrotechnics for two major 4th of July celebrations are being set off.
It's not like the Crue's stage show was hurting for visual stimulation beforehand, as it already featured Nikki Sixx's flame-throwing bass, an entire second stage rising to the sky for the "Home Sweet Home" encore, and the latest in Tommy Lee's ever-more insane flying drum kit stunts, the Cruecifly. (By the way, fans can buy seats on that "Home Sweet Home" stage, which has been dubbed the Cruesnest.)
Motley Crue's final tour – with the legendary Alice Cooper opening – plays in Paso Robles, California tonight (July 25) and continues until their last-ever show on New Year's Eve show at the Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles. You can get all the dates and ticket information at their official site.
