Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue performing in Atlantic City

Motley Crue kicked off their tour in Atlantic City, NJ over the weekend at the Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena. Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers opened the shows, and MMR was in the house for both nights.

On the first night, Friday May 3rd, fans were treated the live debut of Motley Crue’s brand new song “Dogs of War”. Watch footage from the show below.

In an interview with Radio Sara of WMMR Philadelphia, Vince Neil and Tommy Lee confirmed that more new material is on the way, but it might not be in the form of an LP. Neil tells us: “You put out 10, 11 songs (in an album) and half of the songs never get heard by anybody. And we figured if we do a couple songs at a time, we’d give it the full attention that it needs and put out singles. That’s what we want to do right now.”

Tommy Lee adds: “I think it’s cool. Because what’s going to happen here is you’re going to get more, more frequently. The albums take forever to kind of conceptually put together, to record, do all that stuff, (and) it could be several years between a release. Now we’ll just go in and record something and we’ll just put it right out.”

Next up for Motley Crue is an underplay tonight (5/6) at a small club in NYC, the Bowery Ballroom. Maybe they’ll bust out a deep cut for that one. Below, see the setlist from their tour kickoff on May 3rd and photos from the show on May 4th courtesy of Bill Raymond.
