Got to be a wee bit pissed if you spent a fortune on the end of the road shows and now sat with tarnished memories.

Haha, what a joke. However, if this somehow made it to Australian shores I would change my pants due to the introduction of an unspecified jism-like presence that had suddenly appeared.

Back in the day, didn't the likes of Def Leppard and Motley Crue hate the likes of Poison?

I agree, back in the 80's or 90's this would have been a must see for many of us, but unfortunately now their live shows (especially the vocals) fall well short of our memories of the guys in their prime.  While I am not surprised the Crue didn't stick to their guns, especially considering the money, as Peter said, it is a bit of a slap in the face to fans who spent money believing it was truly their last opportunity to see them

I didn't see the show but all my friends who went to see Leppard this year said they were still good. Unlike Bon Jovi who headlined and were dreadful.

I do feel like Leppard is still sounding great and putting on excellent shows.  The only problem is how uninspired their setlists are outside of their Vegas shows.  It's tough getting excited about a 15 song setlist that will be 13 of the same songs they play on every tour.

As for Crue, I saw them on their last tour and they were downright horrible.  It's a shame as I was a big fan of them back in the day and they always put on fantastic shows.  These days though, Vince holds the mic to the crowd for the crowd to sing every other line while Mick Mars looks like a hologram statue off to the side.  It's pretty painful to watch outside of the girl dancers.

As for Poison, they're still pretty good but again the setlist is boring as can be and they'll play the same 8 songs with CC's guitar solo and Rikki's drum solos.  Their act never changes and we know they don't have any new songs to bring to the table.

15 years ago this would've been a great bill but I have little desire to see this now.  I'd rather take that money and travel to see new bands that are making good new music.  And that's coming from a big Leppard fan lol.

Yeah they did, probably because Poison reminded them of what they really were especially Motley, This is why I always liked the heavier bands like Maiden, Priest, Savatage etc just more integrity

I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?

I've never seen Def Leppard or Poison, so their set lists would still be fresh to me. ;) Poison only play 8 songs, though? That's soft. I have friends who have seen Def Leppard on recent visits to Australia and they also said they were still very good. 

Anyway, I don't for a second think this'll make it to Aussie shores. 

I have seen Motley Crue a few years back (possibly on one of their last ever Aussie shows - one of them...). I enjoyed it 'cause I had great seats and I just loved seeing them, but Vince's every 10th word left a little to be desired.

Motley (I think Nikki) said that they would never be seen out with Poison. Somethinga bout not being classed as a pussy hair band.

This was always set up to potentially be a big publicity stunt with the contract being broken due to 'demand'
Nikki is claiming taht they have a tonne of new fans after the movie who deserve to get the opportunity to see them.
Sad that they'd end up having to endure Vince's vocals.

I saw Def Lep a coupld of years ago, and was lucky enough to have seats upgraded for some reason.
First time seeing them. Great show, sounded great.

Haven't seen Poison since before Native Tongue.
I have some awesome photos of that gig though with my old SLR and a 300mm zoom lens.
Not sure I'd be too interested in seeing all three bands.

Actually don't want to see Motley again
Saw Def Lep recently, and Poisons set would be short.

I'd be happy to pay and see a full Poison show though.

I've seen all 3 live and every one of them put on a great show.

I somehow doubt that even if it is true that it will never go outside of the USA seeing as Poison (well Bret) seems to either  think the rest of the world does not exist or his bandana will explode if he leaves the USA.

 

That said, I would go in a heartbeat.

I have seen Motley several times since 2005 and saw them on the final tour as well, I loved them everytime.

Lepp always put on a great show, although last time I saw them was with Crue and Steel Panther, and their set just paled in comparison as far as showmanship goes.

Poison I have only ever seen once back in 1993 on the Seven days live tour with Kotzen on guitar, so would kill to actually see the band with CC on guitar. As long as it is a greatest hits package, thats all I care about.

 

Overall, anyone who feels "ripped off" by Crue un-retiring is deluding themselves as god knows how many bands and artists have retired from touring, only to return. Kiss, Ozzy, Thunder (twice), Bowling For Soup (said no more UK tours and they are coming back to tour for the second time since they retired from UK touring) & even Whitesnake back in the 1990s.

Anyone who does not like them or feels they are no longer relevant really need to pull their necks in and let those who do actually want to go see them just enjoy them. I mean, its not like anyone is forced to go see them.

I Saw Poison with CC, before Richie. I'd live to see Richie play with them, but it sucks to be me I guess.

Re: Crue.
Everyone has a different opinion on them.
Personally, I find it hard to listen to Vince in concert, and have no interest in seeing that.

As for the un-retirement thing, I don't have an issue with a band changing their minds and coming back. If there is a market, go for it. Make your money, have your fun.
The issue I have is all the gullible fans who were tricked in to seeing the final tour thinking this was their last chance.
I bet many paid meet and greet based on that.
I bet many paid for very expensive seats that they normally wouldn't have tried to afford.
Some probably paid a lot to travel to see a show, thinking it would be their last chance.

I believe (and have since they dragged out the 'contract') that it was all a big scam.

These are just my thoughts, and in the end I guess I really don't give too much of a shit.
I will choose not to see them, and for those who got scammed, I guess buyer beware and all that.

I saw Crüe on the last tour and I don't feel scammed at all. I travelled (albeit not as far as others) to see them and it was amazing. I'd understand if they had gone on tour the year right after the ''farewell'' tour, but this is 5 years later we're talking about.

To be honest I had serious doubts about them getting back, as much as they love money there were two factors I thought would make another tour really difficult and therefore unlikely: Vince's state and Mick's health

Now granted, Vince has been performing recently although he's in the worst shape he's ever been so I guess this will just continue into next year :D but happy to see that Mick is fine to play

Fortunately I have seen them all in their heyday:

Motley opening for Ozzy supporting Shout At The Devil (or as Vince would have you believe, "Wow at the devil", then again on the Theatre of Pain, Girls, Girls, Girls and even Feelgood.

Def Leppard, twice on the Hysteria tour when they did those "concerts in the round", Tesla opened the first go and then LA Guns.

and Poison opened for Ratt supporting Look What the Cat Dragged In and then again on their Open Up and Say Ahh with Tesla opening this one.

 

I'd see them all again but it would have to be on the cheap. For what they'd be asking for this tour I'd wager I saw them all multiple times for less back in the day and from what your all saying it sounds like they are phoning it in with lackluster set lists and run times.

 

If they did it right Lep would take Pete Willis out and Motley would bring along Corabi and that would be a fitting send of to all of their lustrous careers.

    • Personally I try to get my news from many sources so that I can see issues from all sides...I think the Trump supporters are maybe too close to the issues to see clearly and those that think Trump walks on water and can do no wrong will never change their opinions no matter what he does ... maybe it is easier for those of us on the outside looking in to weigh the issues or maybe we are all biased depending on our influences growing up....
    • One thing I'm 100% sure of ....I'm very grateful that I'm not black and living in any country that is white dominated....the racism may be more obvious in the US but it exists here in Canada too.... somehow we need to educate everyone about one simple fact...there is only one race and that is the human race....
    • Review from cgcmpodcast.com (by Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall): Back To The 80s In a day that EPs are the thing to do, it’s easy to miss them.  They appear, and then poof! They’re gone. Fortunately, I found this one, and the cover caught my eye. As most of the readers know, I am a HUGE fan of that ’80s sound, and era, and this one seemed right in my wheelhouse. A Brief Background Born from the ashes of the group Miss December, The Rocket Queen gang is heavily influenced by the sounds of the ’80s & ’90s.  Hailing from Zaragoza, Spain, Dolly Glam (Vocals), Gabi Bultaco (Guitar), Gaby Gonzalez (Guitar) Arturo Millán (Bass) and Carmelo Echarri (Drums) first entered the studio in 2015 to record their first EP titled First Round. Since then, like many other bands, they went through some lineup changes and have continued to work in festivals and concerts with many well-known artists. 4 Tracks of ’80s Awesomeness Back to the 80s is a four-track EP that has those sound bites that any fan of the genre craves.  Slick guitars, slamming drums, killer bass lines, and slick, harmonic vocals. The title track has it all. Female vocals could sit along with other female vocalists such as Lee Aaron and Lita Ford just to name a few. “Little Treasures” follows the title track with leading drums and a great attack from duelling guitars. The production of this EP is worth a mention here as well!  Nothing seems to be buried and it’s very slick without being overdone. Side Two “Broken Heart” is another great track featuring some stellar guitar work, not to detract from the rest of the group, however. Aside from the riffs, and pinch harmonics, the drums are pounding here, and the vocals are above reproach. This very well could be a personal favourite from the EP. Rounding out this EP is “Feel the Night”.  Yet another great ending to an EP. Energetic, and fist-pounding! This track is single-worthy representing everything that the band says they are influenced by. This track just oozes the ’80s and is a great way to end an EP leaving the listener wanting more!  Great job! Psycho-Babble One can only hope that this is a taste of a possible full-length album from Rocket Queen. If this is the sound that they have, then I do want more. However, knowing the industry, and how bands have to raise the money to record these days, I’m truly praying that this EP sells well, and creates a buzz to be able to raise those funds!  Until then, I’ll just sit, raise my fist in the air, and go Back To The 80s!   Band: Dolly Glam – Vocals Gabi Bultaco – Guitars Gaby Gonzalez – Guitars Arturo Millán – Bass Carmelo Echarri – Drums   facebook          
    • Why is it serious, now? No disrespect to the officers who lost their lives in this, but why is it only serious now? And, yeah, it is difficult to separate the peaceful protesters from the "thugs." Especially when some of those "thugs" are wearing a badge. That's the whole point. 
    • Just thought I'd bump this after starting to see some positive reviews and knowing that the band has started sending out pre-orders early. Couple reviews: https://hubpages.com/entertainment/Wicked-Smile-Delirium-EP http://lifemusicmedia.com/ep-review-wicked-smile-delirium/?fbclid=IwAR3gsUF7TFpSGcrpmfrq_uqGEs2VNcSbBrwAvggCQ21gKDULyF03Xg8kHsk Looking forward to getting this one as I've really dug the first two songs.   Reminds me of 80's era Judas Priest mixed with Skid Row or something.  I'm generally not huge into "heavy metal" and honestly don't even visit that part of the forum frequently lol.  But I always dug Turbo era Judas Priest as they got more melodic then.  And of course loved Skid Row's debut.  And that where I see this fitting in....sorta heavy metal vibe but still melodic with hooks.       I don't think I've ever had an EP in my top 10 year end list but I see that changing this year with Shriaz Lane's Vibration and this release.  Hopefully a full album isn't too far off 
    • Your second amendment is there to ensure the people have weapons available to defend themselves against the government having learned from the days when we ruled you that sometimes those in power aren't the good guys.  I'm curious. At what point would it be OK for 'the people' to be rise against the government?  When I was at School our English teacher spent a lesson on the Irish troubles.  This is back in the day when there was a real threat at any time of a Bomb planted by the IRA blowing you up. He came from the Irish point of view as he had relatives on the Republican side. Was a really difficult conversation but enlightening.  Perhaps think why all these people are so upset.   
    • the UK and the US prob had the worst and slowest reaction to the pandemic. Sad but true.  Now trump has cut funding to WHO which is ridiculous. 
    • most news channels.  but it's pretty easy to see that the situation is bad. multiple instances of peaceful protests being run down.  not good  & Trump tweeting 'get tough police' today is not helping bearing in mind what led to this. 
    • No he's a blowhard, his own party is constantly telling him to shut it, but tell me this, how do you separate the peaceful protesters from the thugs? they blend in with the thugs, tonight a 2 cops were killed, now the shits serious, common sense says anyone who is truly there to protest will abide by the curfew laws, and leave, and that's what happened in Atlanta, but it's nothing to do with Trump, he kept his mouth shut for the most part, now that police are being targeted, watch, it's going to get rough, but the police are racist if they defend themselves, Trump has kept it entertaining, because the media is always trying to set him up, I'm not even a republican, I'm a libertarian, but I do not like where the left is trying to take things, I wouldn't say Trump is a conservative, he's a business man, not a politician, the sad thing is, he's done a lot for the black community, I can give you examples if you care, they just don't want it, cause it would mean work, and Sambora, how do you react to a pandemic? don't know if there's a guide for that, I think he did good, he just as you said, needs to stop shooting his mouth off, but the circus is to entertaining.
    • you know Glen, i don't know where your at, I mean what country, so I'm not sure what news feed you get, the American media, News, Entertainment, music, etc. are extremely slanted, sometimes it's almost nauseating, and they are the fuel behind whats going on, they pick and choose what to report, this stems from their ownership, their really isn't a truly non biased news outlet I can think of in the US anymore, this is truly why Trump calls it fake news, because they no longer even try to hide the fact that its so biased, in truth it's not so much fake, as it is extremely biased, it's a very deep and long story but if you need examples it's completely easy to give you many examples of what im talking about, they report 1 side of issues, and take things so out of context it should be illegal.
