Motley Crue Fans Plan 13th ‘Cruefest Hollywood’
Motley Crue began to make their name playing Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, so it’s appropriate that the band’s fans have kept that legacy going by annually staging ‘Cruefest Hollywood,’ a musical event that salutes the rock legends while also contributing to the Skylar Neil Foundation, created by Vince Neil in memory of his late daughter.
Now in its 13th year, ‘Cruefest Hollywood’ will take place at the Whisky-a-Go-Go in Hollywood on July 26. This year’s event will find Kemical Kill, Stonebreed, The Drama, Murder: FM, Rebel Hotel, Girl on Fire, Rachelle & the Rising, Stingray and Motley Too all taking the stage to pay homage to the rock and roll bad boys.
As previously stated, proceeds will be donated to the Skylar Neil Foundation, which Vince Neil started as a way to raise money and awareness for individuals who are doing work to find cures for cancer, AIDS and other diseases. Skylar Neil lost her battle with cancer at the age of 4.
The once small event has grown in size in recent years, with offshoot events taking place in New England, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Cleveland, Canada and Australia. Rockers such as Vains of Jenna, Steven Adler, The Lovehammers and more have dedicated their time in the past to playing the event.
