    probably... It probably woke up the egos... :)...

    If they are all in good enough health, & people are willing to pay for it, then why not?

    the video is just someone reporting on it, asking what his followers think.

    I know Mike, & he has insider info. He's married into the family & one of his best friends is Mick's son...

    I had mentioned, one time that Mick's son came to me for lessons (on bass), but I declined because I wasn't giving any lessons. He plays guitar now, but, he played bass w/ Mike years ago ('80s).

    So, unlike this thread, there is no malice in Mike's video...

    I saw them in Tacoma in 1987, when they were still pretty much in their prime. The number of women pulling their tops up must have been some sort of record-I was 18 and couldn’t walk straight for a week after that show.

    I saw them in '87 too...I think Tesla opened up for them? Also saw them in New Mexico, Red Rocks and whatever they are calling Great Woods now. They might be f*****ups but I've got my money's worth every time.

    I saw them in '83. They pretty much sucked, but, they were pretty much young MC. That was at the US Festival. They played daytime (afternoon) on a hot SoCal day, where you didn't get any of the benefits of a light show, etc.

    IIRC, they were inbetween Quiet Riot & Ozzy.

    Who started that, ahem, INTERESTING tradition, anyway???

    I mean, historically, I'm pretty sure pulling up your shirt and shaking your tits WASN'T a common alternative to applause

    I think that brief flash in the Home Sweet Home video pushed the trend into a somewhat mainstream direction.

    While we're on the subject, I think I just figured out why so many people are screwed up these days-it's been almost 40 years since there has been an entire genre of music (and a popular one at that) dedicated to ensuring that everybody knew what their genitals were for. Let that sink in for a minute.

    I also saw them in '83 at the US festival.
    I'm good.
    I don't begrudge anybody from making a buck - doesn't mean they will make it from me.

    I seen them twice over the years. Scantily dressed women and loud rock music is always a good time.

    except, all the women will be over 50 now & they'll have wrinkled up leather for skin, saggy boobs & stretched out/faded tattoos...

    I see you haven’t been to many summer rock festivals.

    Saw them on the 'Theatre of Pain' Tour, just so I could see opening band, Loudness do their 'Thunder In the East/Tour in the West' show. Akira Takasaki SLEW on guitar. Excellent!:dude:

    That show is on YouTube. I liked that era of Crue. They were so young & hungry. Much disappointment after that though.

    They likely got the idea from Ozzy's 53rd Annual 'Farewell' Tour. Or they wanted to tour & make ca$h on the heels of interest in their their recent raunchy Netflix biopic, 'The Dirt'...

    we're talking a 3 headline tour w/:

    Motley Crue
    Poison
    Def Leppard

    Not really a summer festival. Their fanbase will be mostly the crowd they gained back in around 1983.

    I've been to plenty of concerts/festivals. Not so many festivals recently, but, when you are talking about a bunch of 60 year old men trying to rock out like they did in 1983, well, you probably aren't going to be getting a crowd of 18-24 year old beauties taking their tops off...
