Go check it out for yourself. Japan loves the Crüe more than most and these shows are gonna be off the chain.

Oh, the '80s. What a wonderful decade. At least for the boys in Mötley Crüe, that is. The '80s brought them great success and riches as they rode atop the heavy metal wave that sprang from the volatile and churning currents of the Los Angeles music scene. Unfortunately, the '80s also brought them monstrous drug addictions, from which they'd eventually emerge years later, thank you very much. They've learned and experienced much in the last 27 years and they haven't slowed down a bit. Well, maybe Mick, but that's not his fault, as you know if you know anything about the guys. Mötley Crüe has endured, despite their worst habits, and have come out the other side stronger than ever.
