The notorious heavy metal legend Motley Crue is coming to Atlantic City! On May 25th at 8pm, the veteran LA rockers will play at the Mark G. Etess Arena in the Trump Taj Mahal. The band will play at the Taj Mahal’s contemporary, club-scene inspired venue as part of their 2013 Canadian/US Tour.
Known for their notorious lifestyle and over-the-top personalities, the members of Motley Crue are some of the biggest rock legends of all time. Formed in Los Angeles during the 1980s, the band’s popularity reached a fever pitch in the late 1980s when they released their album Dr. Feelgood which earned the band two Grammy nominations.

Despite being massively successful (the band has sold over 80 millions CDs over the last 30 years), the band is best known for their crazy antics, heavy drug and alcohol use, and glam rock style.

Neil also killed the drummer of Hanoi Rocks as a result of a drunk driving accident.

The compilation album Red, White, Crue was released in 2005, and their ninth recorded album called Saints of Los Angeles was released in June 2008. Starting in 2009, Motley Crue started “Crue Fest” which included a variety of top bands including Drowning Pool and Godsmack. Motley Crue also teamed up with Poison in 2011 in order to celebrate their 25th and 30th anniversaries. And in
