    Carnival of Sins: Motley Crue Reunited

    After being away for a few years, Motley Crue (Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, and Tommy Lee) were back together for a big tour.

    They called it Carnival of Sins.

    My brother and I went to the Cincinnati show.

    It was set up like a circus show.

    They played a very long set (in fact, they had a brief intermission at one point).

    Very loud and rocking, as usual.

    One of my favorite Motley shows for sure, and I’ve seen them 8 times.

    I’ll always love this band.  Through thick and thin.

    Rock on!!

    1. Shout At The Devil 97
    2. Too Fast For Love
    3. Ten Seconds To Love

    Shadows Fall Soundcheck

    I’m typing this in 2023, and this was not a full concert I saw anyways, but nevertheless, it’s part of my history and I want it documented here.

    My friend Jamie was assigned to film a band of a friend of his at the Monkey Bar in Huntington, WV.

    I think the band’s name was Gizmachi or Bury Your Dead, but don’t quote me on that.

    I tagged along and mostly didn’t care, but I did like seeing Shadows Fall, who were headlining that night, do their soundcheck.

    I’ve been a fan for many years, so that was cool to see.

    He filmed the band, we hung around a little bit, then we left.

    Not much more to say.
