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.

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.
