Motley Crue coming to Turning Stone on May 23

By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

VERONA, N.Y. - Motley Crue brings their signature style of rock music and stage spectacle to the Turning Stone Resort Casino Event Center on Thursday, May 23 and will mark the band's first appearance at Turning Stone.

Perhaps the most momentous accomplishment of Motley Crue's rock n'roll legacy is the fact that its original members have survived to tell their tale-while remaining as active and relevant today as bands half their age, many of whom drew their style and attitude from the original bad boys of rock. Vocalist Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee have commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years.

Motley Crue's bragging rights comprise worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million-25 million in the U.S.-seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 top 40 mainstream rock hits, and six top 20 pop singles.

Their song list includes some of the most iconic rock tracks of the last 30 years, including "Smokin' In the Boys Room," "Home Sweet Home," "Girls, Girls, Girls," "Dr. Feelgood" and "Kickstart My Heart," to name just a few.

$55, $65, and $75 tickets for the 8 p.m. May 23 Motley Crue show at the Turning Stone Resort Casino Event Center go on sale Friday, March 8 at 10 a.m.. Call the Turning Stone box office at (315) 361-7469 or visit
