Mötley Crüe front man, Vince Neil, performed two shows at Austin’s Saloon and Eatery’s Fuel Room in Libertyville, Illinois this week. Neil was originally slated to perform only one show on Friday, March 23rd, but tickets sold out so quickly – they added another show on Thursday the 22nd.
Opening for Neil on Thursday was Chicago based band F-N-R, who did a great job getting the audience pumped up and keeping them entertained. Neil hit the stage at 11 p.m. to a packed crowd chanting his name. Once he stepped onto center stage, a ride of rock and roll riffs captivated the audience until the end.
Austin’s Saloon has been a northern suburban restaurant and bar since 1992, but recently added their new Fuel Room in late 2006.
Austin’s Fuel Room is a great addition to the suburbs because it not only provides a great venue for local acts, but with support from 95 WIIL Rock – major national touring acts make their mark in this quiet suburb.
Buckcherry, Saliva, Crossfade, Warrant and Firehouse are just a few of the bands that have graced the stage at this Libertyville venue. Seven Mary Three will perform at Austin’s on Friday, March 30th.
95 WIIL Rock often holds unique promotions for listeners to win tickets to shows and to meet the bands. Vince Neil came to the 95 WIIL Rock studios Thursday morning on a promotion to give a listener a “Crue Cut”. Tim Nash of Kenosha, Wisconsin let Neil shave his head in order to get free tickets to the show and to meet the main man of Mötley Crüe.
