MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil performed with his solo band on August 3 at the Porispere festival in Pori, Finland. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
Neil chose to go ahead with his shows at Porispere and Germany's Wacken Open Air (August 2) festivals despite the fact that his mother passed away just a few days earlier after a battle with cancer.
MÖTLEY CRÜE called it quits in December 2015 following an eighteen-month tour that saw the group performing to packed houses all over the world.
A tour film about CRÜE 's final shows, "The End" , came out last fall, and a film adaptation of the band's 2001 autobiography "The Dirt" is in the works.
Neil is continuing to tour the world with his solo band, which includes Dana Strum and Jeff Blando from SLAUGHTER , along with drummer Zoltan Chaney .
Speaking to "Trunk Nation" , Eddie Trunk 's show on SiriusXM channel Volume (106), Vince acknowledged that he is currently the only member of MÖTLEY CRÜE who is waving the flag for the band's music by performing CRÜE songs as a solo artist.
"It's a cool thing, because I love MÖTLEY CRÜE , I love MÖTLEY CRÜE 's music, and I love singing, and I love the fans' reactions when they hear the songs," he said. "Whether we're playing in front of a thousand people or twenty thousand people, I can only see the front row anyway. So I'm happy for me and for the fans to be able to still hear that music after MÖTLEY CRÜE is finished." Via Blabbermouth
