Motley Crue @ Madison Square Garden (3/16/2009)

Logo - Motley Crue

Artist: Motley Crue
Venue: Madison Square Garden (New York, NY)
Opener: The Last Vegas, Theory Of A Deadman, Hinder
Date: 3/16/2009
Label: 10th Street Entertainment

A last minute call from a member of the Metal Community granted me an available ticket to the evenings Motley Crue show at Madison Square Garden and it was an admittedly nice surprise after what had amounted to be a rather trying day. These insane economic times and the tribulations we are all facing seem to matter very little when you convene with your friends and peers at a Metal show so I happily took advantage of the offer to join in on the fun. The fact that the band was performing in the legendary MSG was also a part of the night’s appeal because I had personally seen so many memorable shows at this arena and could not resist the possibility of adding one more to the already long and legendary list. The night’s roster was a full one with three openers to enjoy before The Crue would hit the stage and it all began with The Last Vegas, would continue on with a set from Theory Of A Deadman and then Hinder who were actually considered the “co-headliner”. Here is how the night went down should you be one of those who missed it.

“Take It To The Limit” (Deluxe Edition) by Hinder

Artist: Hinder
Title: “Take It ToThe Limit” Deluxe Edition
Label: Universal Republic
Release Date: 11/4/2008
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 3.5/5

To be honest I had limited background in the band Hinder when they had embarked on their co-headlining tour with Motley Crue but had to admit that a lot of the material that was done for the show I attended made me look into their release “Take It To The Limit”. I initially had some hesitation in doing this based on the Allmusic.com rating of their previous release “Extreme Behavior” as one of the year’s worst offerings but had to say that I found a lot of appeal in what was happening on their follow-up “TITTL”. To best describe what Hinder is doing is to say that they offer up a user friendly brand of Hard Rock that would and should easily appeal to the fans of bands like Nickelback and maybe even in some sense the nineties era Bon Jovi based on some of the songs which are clearly “live concert” sing along numbers. The band is fronted by singer Austin Winkler who has a raspy yet appealing voice and it seems as though all of the rest of the guys offer up some backing vocals to allow for bigger sounding choruses whenever possible. My favorite tune right off the bat was “Last Kiss Goodbye” which finds the singer dealing with infidelity as he tries to come to grips with his dissolving relationship. “Take It To The Limit” is a rocking number that features Motley Crue’s own Mick Mars on some guitar while “Loaded And Alone” paints a picture about how living life inside the bottle is not always such a flattering thing. I also took to “The Best Is Yet To Come” and “Heaven Sent” based on the positive ways that they depict relationships. There are some good lines in there that might make these quite the popular numbers for couples who are in the audience. I had to say that I liked the release much more than I had expected to and while there is nothing over the top or adventurous being done musically, the guys are all doing a good job. The band is rounded out by Joe Garvey (guitar), Mark King (guitar), Mike Rodden (bass) and Cody Hanson (drums). With the guys in Nickelback getting so much airplay there seems to be a call for this kind of Rock and I would rather see this happen than find another lame Emo band rising up.
