Last night at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, theatricality was the name of the game as The Tour 2012, featuring Mötley Crüe and KISS, played to an electrified crowd.

Going on first, Mötley Crüe set the bar high as Vince Neil led a dramatic procession of Crüe banners, demons and scantily clad women through the crowd and onto the stage. Once on stage, the dram continued as aerial performers swung above the stage. In true rock 'n' roll fashion, Mötley Crüe made ample use of pyrotechnics, which included a flame-throwing bass guitar wielded by Nikki Sixx. Midway through the show, Tommy Lee rode his roller coaster drum kit around a huge track that placed him inverted about 40 feet above the crowd where he blasted out a drum solo.

Not to be outdone, KISS took the stage in an equally dramatic fashion, dropping from the rafters on a fire-spewing platform to a fog-filled stage. KISS is known for a live show that overwhelms the senses and last night was no exception. Playing to the crowd and cameras, the entire group mugged for fan and media pictures as a giant light board, trimmed with fire, flashed KISS. Between the posing and tossing ample guitar picks to the fans, it was clear that KISS knew how to please their self-described army of fans.
