Following Motley Crue’s farewell tour this summer, lead singer Vince Neil will heading to Las Vegas to start up an arena football team and “build a Las Vegas team from scratch,” reports the Las Vegas Sun Now that he has AFL (Arena Football League) approval he can begin looking for an arena to call home and pick out team uniforms and assemble cheerleader. Yes, that means Vince Neil will have his own band of cheerleaders, much like any time he went on stage with Motley Crue. Vince has also asked for AFL approval to name his team the Las Vegas Outlaws, a very fitting name. We reported, back in April, that Vince Neil had joined an into an investment group to purchase the Jacksonville Sharks, and that he had the intention of moving the team to Las Vegas, but now he finally has the approval to go forward and start the team of his dreams!
The future Outlaws already have the perfect rivalry set up, and they haven’t even set foot on a field yet. The Los Angeles franchise KISS, owned by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of course, and the Outlaws, or Kiss vs Motley Crue is a match made in arena football heaven, pitting two of the biggest rock bands against each other in a fast-paced and violent, contact sport! I don’t think it would be too much to have a Kiss and Motley Crue to share a stage for a half-time show much like that 2012 tour they did together, but that is for the future to decide.
