Celebrating at Celebration on the Grand

Celebration on the Grand's shift to summer came with a almost fall-like weather on Friday afternoon.

However, it wasn't autumn.

It was the Fourth of July -- Independence Day, with summer in full bloom on a holiday weekend.

The City of Grand Rapids' effort for sustainable special events debuted with excellent weather at Ah-Nab-Awen Park for the 35th annual Celebration on the Grand, which made the grand move from its fall dates.

Motley Crue Debuts ‘All Bad Things’ in Grand Rapids Performance [Video]

By Matthew Wilkening | Ultimate Classic Rock

Mötley Crüe premiered a new song titled "All Bad Things" on Wednesday night during the opening show of its farewell run The Final Tour in Grand Rapids.

Obviously, the recording of the song played at Van Andel Arena isn’t a band-endorsed, audiophile-quality recording. However, even in such rough form there’s enough to make us very curious to hear the studio version of this track.

Motley Crue Kicked Off Their Final Tour in Grand Rapids With Problems [Video/Photo]

Wednesday night in Grand Rapids was a bit rough for Motley Crue, as they kicked off their Final Tour at the Van Andel Arena.  The show was plagued with technical problems throughout, and oddness.

After the third song, Tommy apparently blasted a hole in the kick drum...I'm sure it had nothing to do with FBHW Producer Joe's stunt that morning.  Positive.

GRD’s Motley Crue Pre-Party Kicked Ass Before the Concert! [Photo/Video]

GRD wanted to have some fun for the Motley Crue Final Tour opening day, so we threw a little party outside the Van Andel Arena, in the BOB parking lot before the show.  We brought in some great bands, hooked everyone up with some alcohol, brought out some cool stuff to look at, and gave away great floor seats to the show!

Thanks to the great bands that played in the parking lot for everyone, Potatoe Babies, Fled Five, and Deadwood Stone, everyone was all rocked up and ready for the Motley Crue and Alice Cooper show.

Pre Partying For Motley Crue

I had such a fantastic time at Motley Crue, even if there were some hiccups in the set! Before the show we hosted the official pre party. At the pre party I packed a 6 pack of budlight in my lunch box to get the ball going, my job was to man the table where you could register to win some kick ass prizes!

Alice Cooper Rocks Grand Rapids at Van Andel Arena [Video/Photos]

Motley Crue and Alice Cooper hit the Van Andel Arena last night to kick off Motley's Final Tour in Grand Rapids!

Alice Cooper and his amazing band opened the show with a fantastic set of Cooper hits, one after the other, without any really stopping!

Alice and the gang ripped through the set at a fast pace, never slowing down and never letting up. The sound was great, the band was on fire and Alice brought out several of his famous props and effects for the show!

It's not a Cooper show if he doesn't cut off his head, get in the electric chair, sing in a straight jacket, and let his guitar players rip it up!
