Mötley Crüe, the world’s most notorious rock band, returned to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas to shock fans with wild pyrotechnics as they continued their second residency, Mötley Crüe Invites You to an Intimate Evening in Hell, Friday, Sept. 20 – Sunday, Sept. 22 following last year’s sold out stint.

All weekend, the award-winning music venue was transformed into a fiery arena, encouraging concertgoers to “Shout at the Devil” as the rock group performed hits such as “Saints of Los Angeles,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Kickstart My Heart.” The show left attendees wanting more, including Academy-Award winning actor Nicolas Cage who was spotted in the audience for a second time mingling with Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba on Friday; singer-songwriter Al B. Sure! on Saturday; and Tommy Lee’s girlfriend, singer Sofia Toufa.

Mötley Crüe will continue to rock the stage at The Joint from Wednesday, Sept. 25 – Sunday, Oct. 6. Produced exclusively by AEG Live, Mötley Crüe Invites You to an Intimate Evening in Hell offers a show unlike anything seen before with plenty of surprise elements. Tickets, starting at $49.50 (plus applicable service fees) are available at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.

Meanwhile over at REHAB, the “King of R&B” R. Kelly hit the poolside stage on Sunday afternoon where he signed autographs and took pictures with patrons. The artist sang “Hotel,” “Ignition” and “Move Your Body like a Snake” as partygoers sang and danced under the sun at Las Vegas’ original dayclub.

That evening, R. Kelly continued the fun as he hosted Industry night at Body English Nightclub & Afterhours where resident DJs spun at the turntables while guests danced the night away. The R&B artist took the stage to perform a few hits after thanking fans for their support. Afterwards, R. Kelly proceeded to his table where he partied with close friends and family for several hours.
