For three bands that made their names in rock history in the late 70’s throughout the late 80’s, it was quite amazing to see them still rockin in 2011!
Mötley Crüe, Poison and The New York Dolls came and conquered Aaron’s Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA Sunday July 10th!
Opening the night and setting the scene was The New York Dolls. David Johansen and the band spun right into their well-known songs including “Dance like a Monkey,” which went over well with the crowd. Johansen and his band mates delivered a solid set! They mixed old-school classics with fabulously catchy tunes off the three critically acclaimed albums they’ve released since reuniting in 2005.
Poison was there to bring the house down and with the crowd they had to work with, that is just what they did. Poison is on their 25th anniversary tour. If you can believe that! 25 years of rockin and rollin. What makes Poison Poison is that they stick to what they’re good at, which is playing party music, and the audience eats it up! The majority of the crowd had probably seen them 25 years ago so this was a trip back in time. The crowd literally screamed every word of “I Want Action” along with Michaels, all the while flames burst from the pyro machines on stage.
Mötley Crüe ended the night with a bang! Singing their best loved songs Vince Neil was definitely there for the crowd. Tommy Lee was the star of the show, as we could expect, and Nikki Sixx really brought the crowd in! When they played “Same Ol Situation” which was the 5th song into their set, the crowd reacted with a furious roar. Their set list for the night was Wild Side, Saints of Los Angeles, Live Wire, Shout at the Devil, Same Ol’ Situation (S.O.S.), Primal Scream, Home Sweet Home, Don’t Go Away, Mad (Just Go Away), Drum Solo, Guitar Solo, Looks That Kill, Dr. Feelgood, Too Young to Fall in Love, Too Fast for Love, Girls, Girls, Girls, Smokin’ In The Boys Room (Brownsville Station cover), Kickstart My Heart
All in all it was a great night of rock n roll!
