Mötley Crüe: Never too old to rock 'n' roll

You're only as old as the bands you feel, and when one of those bands wrote a song called "Dr. Feelgood," well, that's a clue, isn't it? There's almost an infinite number of nostalgia acts touring the country right now, but Mötley Crüe — hitting the AT&T Center as part of a national sweep with the even more decrepit Kiss — are at least one of the most reliably energetic of the graying glam-metal set. Like their face-painted tour mates, they'll also feature some brand-new music on an otherwise megahit-heavy playlist; Kiss has just released "Hell or Hallelujah," the first single from a new album out in October, and "Sex," a new single from the Crüe, dropped only a few weeks ago. Both songs are purely in the wheelhouse of their fan base, which means the show is sure to deliver everything you're looking for if you're even considering going to see it, alongside a heaping helping of pyrotechnics for when the fellas need to catch a breather. You'll probably see these guys again — some bands seem determined to tour until they die — but maybe never at this level of intensity.

Crüe can also boast something that few aging rock bands can: they're touring with the original lineup of Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, and Mick Mars. The price tag for all this enjoyment is pretty damn high, but at least a buck out of every ticket is going to Wounded Warriors, so you can even feel good about blowing the cost of three tanks of gas to hear the boys shout at the Devil one more time.
