Tuesday night at the Hard Rock, L.A. glam-metal heroes Mötley Crüe bring their grown-up and toned-down debauchery, while their searing Sunset Strip sound remains intact. With infinitely underrated guitar god Mick Mars, enigmatic songwriting bassist Nikki Sixx, genre-defining vocalist and aging pretty boy Vince Neil, and the wild pounding thump of Tommy Lee's near-perfect drumming, we might not be able to recreate the experience of seeing them at the peak of their wild, death-defying ways--but within the grand hockey arena scheme of things, it's gonna be an evening awash in devil horns, sweat, and straightforward hair-metal love.
Mötley Crüe, with the Last Vegas. Tuesday, March 3, Hard Rock Live, 5747 Seminole Way, Hollywood. Show starts at 8 p.m.; tickets cost $50 to $125. www.ticketmaster.com
