The iconic lead vocalist of the American rock band Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil, will now be performing with Vixen at Inn of the Mountain Gods for an epic night of rock ‘n’ roll. This is going to be one amazing concert you don’t want to miss.
This legendary frontman of Mötley Crüe, is an international superstar, accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist. His unmistakable voice leads some of the greatest rock songs of a generation including “Wild Side”, “Shout at the Devil,” “Home Sweet Home,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart,” “Same Ol’ Situation,” and many others.
Raised on the tough streets of Compton, California, Vince Neil fell in love with music as a child, developing a broad vocabulary that ranged from classic Motown to Hard Rock. As a teenager, he began performing with local bands and soon discovered both a passion for the stage and a natural talent as a singer and performer. He fronted the popular band Rock Candy before reuniting with high school buddy Tommy Lee in 1981, establishing his spot in rock and roll history with the formation of Mötley Crüe.
Don’t miss the iconic all-female hard rock band Vixen. Rising to fame in the ‘80s, the group has sold over a million albums throughout their impressive career.
Vixen was founded in St. Paul, Minnesota by guitarist Jan Kuehnemund. Eventually, she headed for Hollywood with vocalist Janet Gardner, drummer Roxy Petrucci and bassist Share Pedersen (Ross).
The group quickly built their reputation playing the infamous Sunset Strip and signed their first major label deal with EMI. Vixen’s first hit single “Edge of a Broken Heart” then climbed the Billboard charts fueled by its heavy video rotation on MTV. Their self-titled freshmen LP garnered two more hits with “Crying and “Love Made Me”, which both charted on the Billboard hot 100 top 40. However, it was the group’s live performances opening for the Scorpions, Ozzy and Bon Jovi that pushed them into the spotlight.
The group disbanded in 1991 allowing the group members to focus on their own independent projects. In 1997, Gardener and Petrucci released “Tangerine” under the Vixen name. Kuehnemund reformed the group in 2002 with vocalists Jenna Sanz-Agero, bassist Lynn Louise Lowrey and drummer Kat Kraft. They went on to tour and release “Live and Learn” and “Extended Versions.”
Sadly, Kuehnemund was diagnosed with cancer just days before announcing the long-awaited reunion of the four original band members. She passed away in October 2013.
Guitarist Gina Stile joined the band in 2012 and was followed by Britt Lighting in 2017. For more information, visit www.vixenofficial.com.
