MÖTLEY CRÜE - Carnival Of Sins Live

During their late '80s glammy-metal heyday Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Vince Neil, collectively known as
Mötley Crüe, lived up to their rowdy reputation, often bringing them close to death. At that time these kind of hair bands were a dime a bakers dozen - but the difference with these guys were the fact that they actually had some damn fine rock songs, still cool today. This ass-kicking original line-up comeback tour takes out all of the stops. The authentic LA glam-metal bad boys light up the stage with a hefty show of around two-dozen songs, covering all the best tunes across their repertoire including Too Fast For Love, Shout At The Devil, Dr. Feelgood, Girls Girls Girls, Generation Swine and New Tattoo. Most of the album title tracks get a spin, as well as Looks That Kill, Theater Of Pain, Too Fast For Love, On With The Show, Too Young To Fall In Love, Red Hot, Louder Than Hell, Live Wire, Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away), Home Sweet Home, Same Ol' Situation, and Kickstart My Heart. Nikki Sixx gets a solo which is hardly your regular bass solo, but more of an electronic-pyrotechnic display. Tommy Lee's drum solo takes him from his kit up into the ceiling to an industrial and electronic kit. Lee also comes from behind his drums later on with a video camera to have the audience flash their breasts. Cover versions of The Beatles' Helter Skelter and Sex Pistols' Anarchy In The UK close up the show. For the carnival theme the huge stage set-up is enhanced with a carnival tent look, sexy dancers, a midget host, chopper bikes and loads of lights and pyro. The show opens with a stop-animated sequence of the band having to save the world from a big comet. The second disc of extra features include a documentary of the tour, interviews, meet & greet with the fans, as well as two music videos for Sick Love Song and If I Die Tomorrow. The former track features animation depicting each member's darkest hour, from car crashes and over-doses to jail time. There's also a time-lapse clip of the stage set-up. The audio options for the show include Digital Stereo, Digital 5.1 or DTS Surround.
