“Kickstart My Heart” is a good tune, but outside of that I’m not a big Motley Crue fan. In fact, I’d probably consider myself a bit disdainful of the band because of their over the top Hollywood glam lifestyle. So I wasn’t heart-broken in the least when the band bypassed Regina on its swing through Saskatchewan opting for stops in Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Estevan instead.
The Estevan gig was last night at Spectra Place. At some point in the concert a fan, described variously in media reports as “crazed” and “a raging moron”, jumped up on stage, knocked over 62-year-old guitarist Mick Mars and then tried to hug singer Vince Neil before being subdued by security. Mars suffers from chronic arthritis so the fan’s action was not only stupid, it was also dangerous to Mars.
