Chevy Court will rock to the greatest hits of superband Mötley Crüe as lead singer Vince Neil brings his solo tour to the Chevrolet Music Festival at 8 p.m. Thursday, August 29, during the 2019 Great New York State Fair. All performances at Chevy Court are free with Fair admission. That day is a Three Dollar Thursday, which features $3 admission. Concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet and are free with admission to the Fair.
Vince Neil, the legendary frontman of Mötley Crüe, is an international superstar, accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist. His unmistakable voice leads some of the greatest rock songs of a generation including “Wild Side,” “Shout at the Devil,” “Home Sweet Home,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart,” “Same Ol’ Situation,” and many others.
Raised on the tough streets of Compton, California, Vince Neil fell in love with music as a child, developing a broad vocabulary that ranged from classic Motown to Hard Rock. As a teenager, he began performing with local bands and soon discovered both a passion for the stage and a natural talent as a singer and performer. He fronted the popular band Rock Candy before reuniting with high school buddy Tommy Lee in 1981, establishing his spot in rock and roll history with the formation of Mötley Crüe.
Mötley Crüe’s epic 34‐year run included countless multi‐platinum releases, more than 22 hit singles, 100 million albums sold and dozens of global tours with sold out arenas, inclusive of some of the largest venues in the world. The band completed “The Final Tour” on New Year’s Eve 2015, closing the book that told the story of their iconic career. Despite the Mötley Crüe departure from the rock world, however, Vince Neil shows no sign of slowing down, continuing to carry on with the unending “The Legacy Continues Tour.”
Neil remains primarily occupied answering the call to his immense following with shows internationally in conjunction with the culmination of his fourth solo album. Besides being an international superstar, Neil is an accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist. He manages to own several restaurants and his own brand of both tequila and vodka. Certainly not least, his efforts have rallied millions of dollars for a non‐profit organization, The Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation, in tribute to the unfortunate loss of his daughter to cancer in 1995.
