PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds cool to us and we’ve already rallied behind the Official Trailer for the film which I hope that you diehard Crue fans saw on THIS LINK. If not, please take a look and chime in appropriately on it if you are so compelled.
When I began hearing rumblings about screeners for the upcoming Motley Crue biopic “The Dirt” hitting some reviewers desks, I was wondering when the rest of the world would be receiving the films first trailer. Fortunately for all of us that trailer is here now and ready for you to rock along to. Oh and before you ask, I didn’t get one of these screeners myself so I was as eager to see any footage as the most ardent of Crue fans. Let’s check it out.
On December 31st, 2015 – Motley Crue performed for the very last time. This show was captured on video and will be screened for one night only in select theaters. Say goodbye one more time with fellow fans at this exclusive screening. Let’s give a round of applause to the folks at Fathom Events for giving us all the chance to cheer once more.
The Details: Back on 12/31/2015 Motley Crue performed as a band for the very last time during a tour called “The End”. Once it ended the band closed the book on a truly storied career and that was it. No more Motley Crue. The full press release about this event can be viewed HERE. The historic final show will be shown on the big screens at select locations for one-night only thanks to the folks at Fathom Events and even better to announce is that they want a whole bunch of PiercingMetal readers at the screening as well. Read more below on how to participate.
When and Where: Tuesday, June 14th 7:00pm at AMC Empire 25 Theatre (NYC)
To Participate: I probably don’t have to tell you that Motley Crue always delivered the goods when it came to an entertaining show for decades and over the course of my own live concert adventures I think I have seen them about eight times. Of course this is nothing compared to the diehards when it comes to their concert attendances. This contest continues our movie ticket giveaways on PiercingMetal and I’ll keep them similar to our concert ones. With this in mind please just give me three things about the band that you love the most. It can span your favorite albums, songs, meet and greets or past concert experiences. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well to check them out and encourage even more giveaways of this nature. Now since there are likely newbies in the mix that want to be a part of the fun, those people can get me three solid reasons why they must be at the show. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Please be aware that this is for a “single ticket only” and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry.
