MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil sat down with Palms TV yesterday (Wednesday, June 30) and gave a preview of what fans can expect see and hear at his concert tonight (Thursday, July 1) at the Palms Pool & Bungalows at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Also available is a four-minute clip from Live Nation in which Neil answers questions from fans on Facebook.
Neil was arrested Sunday night (June 27) in Las Vegas, Nevada on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, police said Monday.
Neil, 49, was booked at the Clark County Detention Center and faces one count of DUI-Liquor, Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell told CNN. He was arrested at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday.
The singer was also allegedly involved in an incident in front of a Hilton Hotel where a fan said her camera was broken, Cassell said. Police are investigating that incident.
Neil's new solo album, "Tattoos & Tequila", sold 7,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 57 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"Tattoos & Tequila" was issued in Europe on June 4 via Frontiers Records and was made available in the U.S. on June 22 through Eleven Seven Music.
Neil recorded "Tattoos & Tequila" in the winter of 2009 with bassist Dana Strum and Jeff Blando (both of SLAUGHTER) and drummer Zoltan Chaney. The album includes two new songs — "Tattoos and Tequila" and "Another Bad Day", both produced by Marti Frederiksen (AEROSMITH, OZZY OSBOURNE, DEF LEPPARD) — plus a selection of classic cuts from some of the rock giants that have influenced Vince Neil throughout his musical career. The cover songs were produced by Vince and Jack Blades (DAMN YANKEES, NIGHT RANGER).
