    Meal comment wasn’t a typo. The issue with Crue and many other bands of that era is they stayed at the party WAY too long. Some of these bands still going on today should have respectfully bowed out a long while ago or gone onto other projects. Now as they continue on into elderly status, what’s left of the original members, are being classified as a pitiful mess onstage as they continue on. Let’s not kid ourselves, the abilities most of these bands had a long time ago is long gone as of today.

      I amended my comment, I knew you were making a joke, I guess I should have omitted the question mark. I had it there initially, because that was the first time I have had “heard” that name. I have seen Vince Veal before, but not Vince Meal-LOL!

      JJ, as long as you don’t get your hopes up too high you won’t be disappointed. I don’t expect these guys to sound, sing, play, or even look like they did in the ’70s/’80s, and I’m ok with that, none of us are in our 20’s anymore. Unless you’re a freak of nature like Rob Halford, Sammy Hagar, or Steven Tyler, hell, even Mick Jagger! You’re definitely not going to sound or be able to perform like you used to, and even those freaks aren’t as sharp and as crisp as they used to be, but again, it’s 2021, unfortunately.

    • Doug R. on

      Add Ted Nugent to the freaks list, nobody told Ted it was 2021, because he still sounds like he did when he was tearing it up in the ’70s!

  • robert davenport on

    I saw a comment saying you can’t expect some of these aging singers to sound like they’re did when they were young ….sorry yes I can , if I am spending money, a lot of it, I expect a great show and vocal ~if you cant sing anymore retire.

    • Doug R. on

      Robert, do you really expect (with a few exceptions, like I mentioned earlier) these guys to sound like they did back in the good ol days? No matter what the ticket price is? Is the Brooklyn Bridge for sale? … Why do think they all added so much extra pyro to their shows???…

  • robert davenport on

    Hey, doug 2 simple questions actually to any one on this site , why would you spend any money to see any band when the singer is older, and obviously way past his prime can no longer sing , forget about weight gain just pure musical ability # 2 please explain why you would spend hard earned money on something like that- thanks ~

  • robert davenport on

    In my question to doug I was not trying to be mean spirited , I really am interested to know why fans of any band would spend money knowing their favorite singer can no longer deliver the songs the way you heard them and made you love them , music is art and is appreciated differently by fans , exmp: what makes a die hard kiss fan want to spend a couple of hundred bucks to see paul stanley lip sync to a digital recording of his voice …I dont get it ….

      Hi Robert,

      I can only speak for myself.

      We bought tickets for the tour when they were first announced, because my girlfriend had not been to a live show in years, and we thought this would be fun I was mainly going for Def Leppard, and Bret Michaels, who supports veteran causes, so I love him. Any additional good performances were just icing on the cake.

      However, when it was announced, due to the virus, that ticket holders could either get a refund, or a postponement, we opted for the refund.

      At this point, I do not have any desire to sit outside in the humid, New York July heat, with a mask on, for four plus hours, that would be torturous. Even if this germ had been entirely eradicated, my interest in this tour has waned.

      I could change my mind again, by the time 2022 (which seems a lifetime away) rolls around, but as of now, my answer would be “No, thank you.”

    • Doug R. on

      Robert, that is exactly my point, that’s what I have been trying to say, but I guess it just wasn’t coming out the right way. There are only a handful of singers/performers who can still bring it like they did back in their prime (or close) as I’ve mentioned – Rob Halford, Sammy Hagar, Ted Nugent, Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger, and maybe a few others. Today with the internet, it’s pretty easy to know ahead of time what to expect before anybody pays out their hard earned money for a concert, nobody really shouldn’t be surprised as far as who still has it and who doesn’t, especially Vince Neil, because he never had it! I’m a Crue fan, but it’s mostly because of their songs (not all of em though) and because Mick Mars is 1 of the best guitarist on the planet! Either one! 😉 If I’m going to pay money to see Motley Crue, it’s for 2 reasons, the music, and to have a good time, not to listen to Vince Squeal!

    • Rattlehead on

      Dana, maybe in 2022 Sykes will be touring, and you can use your ticket refund to attend his show! :o)

      And I expect many other fans, like you, to lose interest in this Crue tour by the time 2022 rolls around…..

    • Dana on

      LOL!!! You’re too funny.

    • Rattlehead on

      Robert, I will no longer spend a lot of money to see certain acts. I have seen both Metallica and Megadeth countless times. I can no longer tolerate the sloppy play of Lars and Kirk. I also don’t like the way James sings the songs rather than deliver them with that “anger” he used to have in his voice. The other “turnoff” I have is these bands both tune down for vocal reasons. When their classic era songs are performed in alternate tunings, the songs lose a lot of power, IMO. I’d much rather listen to “Master of Puppets” and “Rust in Peace” rather than attend one of their shows and be reminded why I should have stayed home and saved the money…..

    • Doug R. on

      Not me, bro, I’ll never lose interest! If I have the opportunity, I’m there! I would love to be outdoors, drinking beer in the fresh air with my hands up in the air like I just don’t care! 😉 This isn’t just about the Crue, this is also about Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, and celebrating the ’80s! It’s about taking a ride on the Wild Side with the Rock Brigade, and having Nothin’ But A Good Time! What else can I say? I LOVE ROCK ‘N ROLL!! 😉 Cheers!

    I think live music, live events in general, are going to explode now that the restrictions are going away…people are wanting to get out and rock and rumble again.
    I also wish people wouldn’t be so concerned about how they comment on social media sites…we’re talking about something as low stakes as music and art…when the stakes are this low you can get into heated discussions, can’t you? this overtly polite stuff is super annoying..unless of course you’re talking about someone famous, then you can just shred them to bits for no good reason (?!)
