Mötley Crüe: The End, Saturday 1 December, 11.45pm, Virgin TV Ultra HD (CH 999) – press the up button on the EPG to easily access Virgin TV Ultra HD
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the baddest rock band of them all? The Rolling Stones? Led Zeppelin? The Who? Wrong, wrong and wrong again. The answer is Mötley Crüe, those leather-loving hair metal icons who ruled the 1980s with big anthems and even bigger hair.
In 2015, members Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars announced that they would embark on one last tour, playing more than 150 shows around the world. They even signed a contract that barred them from performing together under the name Mötley Crüe once their hard-rocking mission was over.
And now, you can watch them strut their stuff in stunning Ultra High Definition in a special recording of their last ever show. Held on New Year’s Eve (or as they dubbed it, “Crüe Year’s Eve”) at the Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles, it’s a mayhem-filled bonanza of classic songs, outrageous pyrotechnics and much, much more. You want nuance? You won’t find any of it here.
This final show from the bad boys of rock is just one of the amazing concerts you can watch on Virgin TV Ultra HD. Here, we explore the other musical marvels coming to the channel…
