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!

And, now, why even have a band or musicians at all?
