Missing out on the concert tour of the century because you can’t get press or photo passes, is one thing, but when you have free tickets, press credentials, a photo pass for Kiss & Motley Crue ,THE TOUR, and you’re in a snake skin dress-with red snake -skin boots, with fishnet stockings, and a V.I.P rope around your neck, all ready to rock and roll. Then the rain pours down, and the traffic is fifteen thousand deep, and you miss your press pick -up, and everything falls apart. The Live Nation event still occurs as planned, and on schedule, even if you are not.
The show still does go on, even without The Milwaukee Rock Music Examiner stage side. The nature of the music business, isn’t always smooth.
It does not stop those fifteen thousand people , who brave the rain, and sit in their cars for hours waiting to park, and who pay the $50-$250 ticket prices, and $13.00 beverage tag. Die-hard fans were ready for the pyro-technical, explosive, double-billing of Motley Crue and Kiss, Saturday September, 8th, at Alpine Valley Concert Theatre in East Troy , Wisconsin.
It was a good thing to have a team of individuals in place, to get the scoop for our readers and the fans.

“Motley Crue’s performance of , HOME SWEET HOME , blew me away. Motley Crue is one band that is still in their prime. During the show , Niklki Sixx, (bass) , wears a camobag on his back , containing water. At times, during the show , he poured a mixture of his own sweat and water into buckets, that were on the stage. At the end of the show, he threw his spit -filled buckets into the front row. He threw 3 buckets in all, one to the left side of the stage, one center , and to the right. The grass seated fans were soaked , a torrential mudd-fest, and the seated fans were now a spit-soaked mess, only adding more fun and excitement to the Live Nation concert. Tommy Lee’s , Drum roller coaster, had a winner from the local 95.1 WIIL ROCK , contest winner, a small and pretty blonde, riding shot-gun, for the spinning musical adventure.”
“Kiss did not play as many of the songs as one would prefer , but as a music lover, I felt, they rocked the house. LICK IT UP, was awesome and a crowd favorite. Kiss’ last song , I WANT TO ROCK & ROLL ALL NIGHT, brought the crowd to amazing levels. KISS had confetti throughout the song and worked the crowd until the end. Either way, both bands still have the magic that made them famous, and this music lover , would pay to see them, again. “
