Thursday May 2, 2013 Credit Union Centre - Saskatoon, SK
The tour that came through Saskatoon on May 2nd was not what we are used to seeing in the spectacle that has been known as Motley Crue. Sure there were the hits like “Girls Girls Girls”, and “Kick Start My Heart” and newer songs “Mutherfucker of the Year” and “Saints of Los Angeles” but the show was missing something, pyro. Yes we had some girls on stage slutting it up and being background singers but the fire and lights were lacking.
The show started with the band parading through the venue with banners and flags and only Vince was willing to high-five the fans that waited to see them. Although the music was at the prime, for which I got to sing into Vince’s mic for “Home Sweet Home”, I missed the show l ike Carnival Of Sins from 2007.
The show only had about five-thousand people attending which left a mass of empty seats, probably because for $150 a ticket is one of the most expensive concerts in a long time. One unique aspect was the roller coaster of Tommy Lee’s drum kit that had him play upside down. A fan was also chosen to ride it with Mr. Lee through a contest from our local radio station ROCK102.
Overall the show was good, I can’t say great because for the most part the band stood at their microphone stands and didn’t look like they cared but it was at least a show.
