Motley Crue/Alice Cooper

When: Tue., Aug. 12, 7 p.m. 2014

"Welcome to the crazy, fucked up world of Motley Crue,” said singer Vince Neil at the beginning of the band’s 90-minute set at Blossom in 2012. While the singer severely twisted his ankle during the show, he soldiered through it and delivered a terrific set that was punctuated by hard-hitting renditions of the band's biggest hits. Throughout that show, scantily clad women danced on the stage alongside the band. During “Dr. Feelgood,” a woman in a straightjacket was hoisted up to the rafters. A cadre of assistants came out regularly to man a pair of high-pressure water cannons and soak the crowd. While Neil can't sing like he once could, he makes a terrific ring leader for the circus that is Motley Crue. And speaking of circuses, be sure to arrive in time to see shock rocker Alice Cooper. Cooper practically invented the theatrical rock show and though he's technically a senior citizen, he still puts on a helluva show. (Niesel)
