Hinder, Theory Of A Dead Man and The Crue

Last night was The Big Night. KC, Spencer, Shawn and I all took a tour to Hamilton and Copps Coliseum to see Motley Crue. The fist act was Hinder...I thought that I hated them, but as it turns out, they rock! I'm not sure about the lead singers personal Axl Rose/Davey Jones/Mick Jagger swagger, but the music was stupendous. Truly.

Theory Of A Dead Man came on next. Hmm. To me, they sound an awful lot like Nickleback. I keep waiting for my 'Rock star' song, and then I remembered - oh, yeah...These are the Santa Monica guys. I actually really like that song, but I have to be honest, I was happy as hell when they ended their set.
Motley Crue came out to the ass kicking Kick Start My Heart. The first few songs seemed to just flow into one another - seamlessly. It was nothing short of magnificent. Breath taking.
It was - The Crue!

Part way through the set, Tommy Lee (I say Tommy, you say Lee!) sat on the edge of the stage for a little q&a session. Of sorts.
He told us that he was horny as hell and asked if we all were, too.
(Ah, these mother daughters moments that I will never forget. Sniff)
He shared his jagermeister with the audience (ewww) and declared the city of Hamilton was now SLAMilton, cuz, he was, horny.
Tommy thanked us all for sharing our bitches with him (umm, you're welcome, I think??) and called us all MotherF#$%ers so many times that I lost count.
Vince Neil was - well, he was Vince Neil. He was incredible.
I was slightly shocked at the porn that was playing the screens. I mean, yeah, this is Motley Crue, but it was, ahem, weird to be sitting there with my daughter on one side of me and a sweet little eight year old boy rocking out on the other side of me while porn flashed on stage.
Mind you, I doubt very much that the boy even noticed the porn. It was his very first concert, he knew ALL of the lyrics to ALL of the songs and he was rocking out. I enjoyed him almost as much as the bands.

Of course, the smoke damn near killed me and today I have no voice at all from all of the coughing that I have been doing. That flu is still hanging on and I feel like...yuck. Still, it was worth it. I would do it all again in a heartbeat...Well, maybe not a heartbeat, but in another 2 weeks or so when we hit London for NKOTB!

gotta say...i don't get it.

Heidi the Hick said...

You crack me up! Crue, NKOTB!

Hey, I do get it... I'm not proud of it but I get it!

Did he do the boob cam? That was embarrassing! I'm such a prude! He did the swinging drum kit act for us. Did he do that? It was a scream! I kind of wish I'd seen the Q&A although I have a feeling you've just done the whole recap here!

Vince is... he's Vince.

Was Mick all bent over and gnarly? That dude is scary in a very odd-fun way!

I sort of have a wee crush on Nikki sixx these last few years. It's unexplainable.

I know EXACTLY what you mean about Theory.

And Hinder... they fit very firmly, in fact, they are the Poster Boys, for a special category of rock for which I have invented a special name. It's the "Fastcars Sluttygirlfriend Bigcock YeahhhhhAHHHH!"

I can't stand them! We were listening to it in the studio one day and I was like, "Dude, I have heard this before. And I liked it better the first time I heard it... When it was called THE 80S!"

But Crue, they just keep perfecting their thing. Cockroaches. Unkillable.

Marni said...

I love Theory!!!! I'm sorry they sucked for ya.

As for Crue... I've seen their show before and you are so right... they kick ASS.

Glad you had a good time.

Biddie said...

dilling - I don't really get it either, I just like it :)

heidi - You hate Hinder? lol. I liked them better than Theory. Mind you, it was a short set and I didn't have any prolonged exposure to them :)
I loved Motley Crue. I did. There was no boob cam but the crack head sitting in the seats directly in front of us didn't seem to clue in. She keep on flashin em.
Mick Mars is in his 60's, so the rumor goes.No wonder he is all knarly.
Nikki Six is not my thing, but is a killer on stage. They all rocked it.
The q&a session was almost my fav part (bitches!). Still, all I could think of was that honeymoon porno of Tommy and Pam..Lol. I have only seen about 10 seconds of it, but it still flashed thru my mind...again and again!
I had a great time. NKOTB next! Whoo! Rock on!!

Marni - Theory didn't suck, they just weren't my fav. They were actually very good live. I was thinking of you at the concert, cuz I know how much you like them :)

Burfica said...

oh my gosh sounds like a good time, but I probably would have been ahhhhhhhhhhhh about the porn. hehehehehee

Biddie said...

Burfica - Yeah...the porn was a bit icky. I mean, whatever if you are into that, but I was just NOT expecting it, you know? I mean it was pretty explict...
The rest of the show? I loved it!

Patty said...

I feel old because this is a group I never followed. I do enjoy concerts though and it sounds like this was a good one. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Biddie said...

Patty - hi! Thanks for stopping by :)
I had a fabulous time, and I am soo looking forward to the next one!

Palm Springs Savant said...

oh hilarious. It's funny doing things like that isn't it? I remember going to my first rock concerts and feeling so cool. Now I cringe at the cursing- I feel so old at times. glad you had fun.

Biddie said...

Rick - I'm glad that it's not just me! I am ceratinly no prude, but the cursing was excessive, to say the least.
Still, I had sooo much fun. I can't wait to go again!

whimsical brainpan said...

Rock on girl!

I don't consider myself a prude in the least but I'm surprised at the fact that they showed porn. Cussing I don't mind much, mainly 'cuase I curse like a sailor.

coffeypot said...

I'll stick to coutry. Toby Keith mostly.

Biddie said...

Whim - I swear like a trucker, too, but it just felt itchy to hear all of those words with my kid and an 8 year old sitting near me.
The concert was AMAZING though.

Biddie said...

coffeypot - I like some country, too. Some. Does Garth Brooks count?

Heidi the Hick said...

tommy & Pam? Ewwwww.

Mick Mars also has a bone disease which causes him a lot of pain. He's pretty brave to be out there rocking!

Biddie said...

heidi - Mick Mars had a hip replacement a couple of years back, too. A HIP REPLACEMENT, Heidi. Can you imagine???? OMG, he really does rock!!!!

Gardenia said...

Nice pics - when you get ready to have some fun, you really know how!!!!!

captain corky said...

Do you think KNOTB will show porn at their concert too? Somehow I doubt it. Glad you had a good time and I know you'll enjoy the next one.
