REVIEW BY: Debby Rao
Rock legend Vince Neil, returned to New England to play the new ‘80s rock club hangout Jarrods in Attleboro, MA. I got to see Vince play this summer on the Poison tour, and it was great to have a chance to see the band play in such an intimate club setting.
The band hit the stage at 11:30 p.m. and from that moment on, the audience was pumped up and singing along toe very Motley Crue song. The band opened with my favorite, "Smokin’ In The Boys Room." Dressed in jeans and a gray sweatshirt, Vince Neil looked great and you could tell he was in a good mood and ready to rock. So let the party begin!
Vince asked the audience what they wanted to hear the band play. From opening song
"Smokin’ in the Boys Room" until closing with "Dr. Feelgood, the show was spontaneous and fun. The band played all the Motley Crue hits including
"Girls, Girls, Girls," “Wildside," “Shout at the Devil" and “Looks That Kill."
The intense energy of former Union drummer, Brent Fitz and bassist Alan Vine was amazing. Brent also played keyboards on "Home Sweet Home." Guitarist Jason Hook put a new twist into the Motley Crue hits with his great guitar solos. There is talk of a Motley Crue reunion next year, but personally I think the chemistry and talent of the Vince Neil band is amazing. Vince is the only member of Motley Crue that can pull off a solo tour and make it work.
The band ended the show with "Kickstart My Heart" and then came back to play two encores including "Teaser" and "Dr. Feelgood." Vince knew what the audience wanted to hear, and the band delivered a great night of old school rock and roll.
