Lewd, Crüed and Tatooed

Rated 3/5 (60%) (8 Votes)

Lewd, Crüed & Tattooed is the first Mötley Crüe concert film. It was recorded in Salt Lake City, USA on July 5th, 2000 during the Maximum Rock tour. The cover shows a pretty nasty girl reminiscent of the 80s era, the kind of cover that would raise the hair of some feminists! (-:

The band plays 15 songs and they picked most of the best songs of their career. Some of the highlights are Primal Scream, Home Sweet Home and Wild Side. They play three songs off the new album, New Tattoo, two from Shout At The Devil, four from Dr. Feelgood and happily, there are no songs off Generation Swine and Mötley Crüe.

This is a great concert with a good looking stage à la Sunset Boulevard and good flashes of pyro and explosions. Two great looking girls appear from time to time to back-up some vocals on some songs but this is not their main goal if you know what I mean. (-: Every time they appear, they are dressed differently.

The drummer is Samantha Maloney from Hole, the Courtney Love's band. She replaces new Mötley Crüe stickman Randy Castillo, who was sick during that tour. She is one of the great surprises of that show. She plays very well and with a lot of energy, she beat out all my expectations. She is a fan of the band. Samantha must be really happy to play real good music instead of Courtney crap! (-; Two thumbs up!

The sound is good but not awesome, but hey, this is not our first expectation from a Mötley Crüe concert! (-: Vince Neil skips some words and doesn't reach every high notes. That's the only negative point that I can tell. Mick Mars seems to suffer from his illness (bones) and doesn't move a lot but plays rather very well. Nikki Sixx doesn't seem to age really!

There are many great additional material on the DVD: The first Mötley Crüe song ever, never-heard-before Nobody Knows What It's Like To Be Lonely, a very good heavy song and the great funny cartoonish video clips of Hell On High Heels. There is also a short clip of the making of New Tattoo and some behind the scene footage.

Overall, a must have for every fans of the veteran hard rockers. A very good live performance and some really cool extras. It's really worth the price.
