It was exactly how one dreams a rock and roll fantasy would be, especially for rock royal Vince Neil when he celebrated his 52nd birthday because his theme song “Girls, Girls, Girls” was never truer.
Everywhere a guest turned in the former Elvis Presley suite at the LVH (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton), there were blondes, brunettes and redheads all decked out in miniskirts, fishnets and pink wigs.
They greeted guests at the elevator, they jumped up to serve drinks from the bar, they popped out of cabinets with taste treats and they served birthday cake in a replica of the Motley Crue frontman’s car. Instead of a rock group, which would have forced him to sing, Vince had a mariachi band on duty.
Vince’s guests included new Las Vegas resident actor Nicolas Cage, who will next star in the lead role of the action revenge thriller “Tokarev,” in which the Oscar winner hunts down kidnappers of his missing daughter. He’ll be seen first in “Joe” playing an ex-con who forges an unlikely bond with a troubled teen.
Boxing champion and Las Vegas resident Mike Tyson was another guest at Vince’s blowout bash, and the three huddled for my iPhone camera. “This is a bad boys club, but I prefer that we call ourselves rogues,” Nic laughed.
The trio chatted about a new project they are plotting, but I’m sworn to secrecy for now. Meantime, Mike, preparing for his one-man show opening in Indianapolis tonight, confirmed that he has a new restaurant operation coming up in The Linq at Center Strip alongside the world’s largest observation wheel, The High Roller. Now under construction, it’s total height will be 550 feet.
Mike is on tour with “Undisputed Truth” through May 5 in Westbury, N.Y. Meantime, Vince leaves next week for an Australian tour with Motley Crue opening in Perth with KISS on Feb. 28. After shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Mackay, he returns in time for a solo concert at Orleans Arena. The March 22 Bob Rocks show also will feature Quiet Riot, Skid Row, Warrant and Night Ranger.
“I literally get off the plane from Australia and go straight to rehearsals for the show the next day,” Vince told me.
