Vince Neil is back with a rock-solid performance after a disastrous first gig a few weeks ago.
Video footage of MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil performing the band’s classic songs “Dr. Feelgood” and “Looks That Kill” at a private concert last night (Thursday, August 5) in Austin, Texas can be seen below.
Sammy Hagar has come out and supported Vince Neil for an amazing performance.
Here’s what a fan wrote under Hagar’s Instagram post:
“Vince can’t sing anymore.”
Sammy Hagar responded:
“He was great tonight.“
Eddie Trunk’s tweet read:
“I can tell you with 100% honesty that Vince Neil sounded really good tonight live. Mötley Crüe fans will be happy to know he’s made some great progress since vocal issues last show that made so much news. Arrow pointed up for sure! Video on my Instagram.”
Motley Crue addresses this amazing performance from Vince Neil on social media.
Here’s what the fans said:
“Looking and sounding waaaayy better.”
“I’m shocked to see Vince sound & perform better”
“Neil sounded much better. Sammy always sounds good. ”
“Good for Vince. Hope he continues to improve.”
“Looks that kill was pretty good, actually. Look, he’s never going to be Dio as a live vocalist, especially at the age of 60. If he truly does get into better shape, loses 20 pounds, and strengthens his voice, I think he could pull off the stadium tour.”
“Damn… great improvement. Keep it up, Vince! Best he sounded in years”
“He looks/sounds better than last time out. It’s a start!”
“Much better this time and the drummer is kicking a*s back there“
Earlier, it was revealed that Vince Neil will headline the show and support comes from Great White.

After Phil Collen, recently Chris Jericho has now expressed his concern over Vince Neil’s voice.
Jericho discussed Neil‘s return to the stage during a brand new interview with “Loudwire Nights”.
Here’s what Jericho said (Thanks to Blabbermouth):
“It’s disappointing because I think everyone is pulling for Vince and they’re pulling for MÖTLEY CRÜE. And it’s gonna be tough doing because Joan Jett, I don’t know if you’ve seen her recently, she’s freakin’ awesome. And Bret Michaels — I was just talking about POISON the other day; they’re gonna steal the show. You’d better watch out for POISON, ’cause Bret Michaels is the best frontman out of all of those bands. And then DEF LEPPARD‘s DEF LEPPARD; they do what they do. And MÖTLEY CRÜE, they’re gonna have to really step it up.
“I’m disappointed to see Vince the way he is, because I think if he lost some weight and did some training and came out there and was in some semblance of shape, a) his voice will sound better just from that alone, and b) people would go, ‘Holy sh*t! Did you see Vince Neil? He looks great.’
“I think if he really wants to do it, he could do it,” Jericho continued.
“But I don’t know if he does. And that’s the thing. And it’s up to him. And either way, it’s MÖTLEY CRÜE — people are gonna go, and they’re gonna love it. But to me, as a performer, I would take that as a challenge: ‘I’ve got one year. Let’s do this. It’s been long enough. Let’s do this for real. Let me call Phil Collen and Duff McKagan and other rock guys that have got themselves into great shape: ‘How did you do it?” And really follow up. It’s great to have dieticians and stuff, but I would call Duff McKagan, a guy who is in wicked shape because his pancreas blew up and he almost died. That’s what I would start doing. ‘Let me start thinking how these other rock guys that we’ve partied with for years, and now they’re super physical and they’re the same age as me and the same mindset of being a rock and roll guy. How do you do it?’ I think he could do it, but he has to want it. And I think, as a fan, it would be one of the greatest feel-good stories — no pun intended — in rock and roll history if Vince came out there and just looked like a killer and was, like, ‘All right, mother-effers’ [extends middle fingers of both hands] — I did.'”
