Thanks to Motley Crue’s invasion of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas this month, Sin City just became the new hair-metal capital of the world. As the band prepares to hit the stage for its two-week residency at the hotel Friday, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman officially dubbed Feb. 3, 2012, ‘Motley Crue Day.’ We imagine sales of eyeliner and leather pants on the Strip are about to skyrocket.

The platinum-selling band, highlighted in a recent Times feature story, will play four shows a week during its Vegas stint. In case you’re wondering what kind of stage show might lure people to party with the Crue rather than spend Super Bowl Sunday or Valentine’s Day with a loved one, take a look at some clips of the band’s high-budget interactive stage show that includes drummer Tommy Lee performing on a rollercoaster. It makes his sky-high, rotating drum cage from back in the ‘80s look like child’s play. Check out a list of dates and click here video of Lee’s wild rollercoaster ride below (caution: some raunchy language.)
