Tickets are still available and range from $39.75 to $106. To order, call (603) 293-4700 or log on to
Mötley Crüe first catapulted into public view in 1981, as the foursome distinguished themselves from the punk and New Wave-soaked Sunset Strip, donning New York Dolls debauched leather. Stylistically suggesting Alice Cooper, Kiss and Aerosmith, Neil's caterwauling vocals and Mars' melodic guitar riffs prompted the indie debut of Too Fast For Love that year. With the group's burgeoning Southern Cali popularity and first tour, Crüesing Through Canada, the album sold 20,000 copies; enough to spur interest from Elektra Records, which remastered Too Fast for release in 1982, followed by sophomore Shout at the Devil in 1983.
The multi-platinum Oklahoma City hard rockers, Hinder got just freaky enough for their latest offering and fourth full length album. Of course they've still got some big rock anthems such as "Ladies Come First," but tracks like the acoustic "Get Me Away From You" boast gritty charm with just the right amount of pop prowess.
