    It was a very rockin' end to a fantastic race day. I was expecting to be a little disappointed as I have been to the 'elders of rock' venues before and they are almost always painful. This time it was less painful and almost enjoyable. 
    It was very obvious that Vince was on his game from all the Motley Crue shows over the last few years. 

   I will start with the playlist which consisted of Motley Crue classics for the most part and speckled with some covers. 
    Vince sounded good while  other band members were just ok. The drummer, Zoltan Chaney, was a faint shadow of Motley Crue's Tommy Lee.  The bassist Dana Strum, held his own while guitarist Jeff "Blando" Bland, completed the formula.
Overall a fun show, but still a reminder that we all grow old.

     Saturday Night Concert!

LONG BEACH, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2015) - Vince Neil, the legendary voice of famed rock and roll band Mötley Crüe, will star in the Saturday, April 18 "Rock-N-Roar Concert" at the 41st Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
The concert, free to race ticket holders, begins at approximately 6:45 p.m. on the concert stage adjacent to the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center.
Neil will be playing all the Mötley Crüe favorites, which include some of the greatest rock songs of this generation:  “Home Sweet Home,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart” and “Same Ol’ Situation.”
Coming to Long Beach will be nothing new for Neil. In 1992, he got a taste of professional auto racing, competing in four Indy Lights races including a 17th-place finish in Long Beach.
Raised in Compton, Vince Neil fell in love with music as a child, developing a broad vocabulary that ranged from classic Motown to hard rock. As a teenager, he performed with local bands and fronted the popular band Rock Candy before reuniting with high school buddy Tommy Lee in 1981, sealing rock and roll history with the formation of Mötley Crüe.
“Being raised in Southern California and being a race fan, this has always been my favorite race,” said Neil. “I am very excited to be a part of it, this is going to be ‘bad ass.’”
When not performing, Neil oversees a number of entrepreneurial efforts as well as The Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation (, a tribute to his daughter whom he lost to cancer in 1995, which has raised more than $2 million to help combat childhood cancer.
