Motley Crue Stadium Tour Tickets - Citifield August 23rd, 2020

Motley Crue Stadium Tour tickets New York City on August 23rd, 2020. The Crue will be joined by Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in what is being billed as "The Stadium Tour"

After 5 years of self imposed retirement, legendary 1980's rockers Motley Crue are back. After what was billed as their final tour in 2014, Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, and Mick Mars drew up a contract that claimed the band would never tour again. Fans were devastated at the news of the so called retirement of the band. Now five years later, the band has had a change of heart. The contract was torn to shreds and now we are handed "THE STADIUM TOUR".

The Stadium Tour is an extravaganza of some of the ultimate bands of the 1980's. Motley Crue, the 1980's first and perhaps biggest rock bands, with hits like Girls, Girls, Girls, Home Sweet Home, Shout At The Devil and many more opened the door for many other bands such as Guns N Roses, Poison, and tour co stars Def Leppard.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1981, Motley Crue has sold over 100 million albums worldwide in their illustrious career. They have also achieved seven
platinum or multi-platinum certifications, nine Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart (including 1989's Dr. Feelgood, which is Mötley Crüe's only album to reach number one), twenty-two Top 40 mainstream rock hits, and six Top 20 pop singles.

The band's first release was the single "Stick to Your Guns/Toast of the Town", which was released on its own record label, Leathür Records, which had a pressing and distribution deal with Greenworld Distribution in Torrance, California. In November 1981, its debut album Too Fast for Love was self-produced and released on Leathür, selling 20,000 copies.

The band became rapidly successful in the United States after playing at the US Festival and also with the aid of the new medium of MTV. Their second album, Shout at the Devil, was released in September 1983. The album represented the band's mainstream breakthrough and would eventually be certified 4x platinum.

The band members also had their share of scrapes with the law. On December 8, 1984, Neil was driving home from a liquor run in his De Tomaso Pantera which ended in a head-on collision; his passenger, Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley, was killed. Neil, charged with a DUI and vehicular manslaughter, was sentenced to 30 days in jail (though he only served 18 days) and subsequently sued for $2,500,000. The short jail term was negotiated by his lawyers, enabling Neil to tour and pay the civil suit. The band's third album Theatre of Pain was released in June 1985 and dedicated in Dingley's honor, and it started a new glam metal phase in the band's style. The band would later release two box sets titled "Music to Crash Your Car To".

The band's fourth album, Girls, Girls, Girls, was released in May 1987 and debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200. Sixx has said in interviews that he believes the album would have debuted at number 1 if not for behind the scenes maneuvering by Whitney Houston's record label.

On December 23, 1987, Sixx suffered a heroin overdose. He was declared legally dead on the way to the hospital, but the paramedic, who was a Crüe fan, revived Sixx with two shots of adrenaline. His two minutes in death were the inspiration for the song "Kickstart My Heart", which peaked at No. 16 on the Mainstream U.S. chart, and which was featured on the 1989 U.S. number one (their first) album Dr. Feelgood. From 1986 to 1987, Sixx kept a daily diary of his heroin addiction and eventually entered rehab in January 1988. In 2006, Sixx published his diaries as a best selling novel: The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, and in 2007, Sixx's side project band Sixx:A.M. released The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack as a musical parallel to the novel.

In 1988, controversy again hit the band in the form of a lawsuit by Matthew Trippe. Trippe claimed that Sixx was hospitalized in 1983 after a car crash involving drugs and that he had been hired as Sixx's doppelgänger. The suit was regarding the loss of royalties from his time in Mötley Crüe and the case was not closed until 1993 when Trippe dropped his charges and disappeared from public view.

Their decadent lifestyles almost shattered the band until managers Thaler and McGhee pulled an intervention and refused to allow the band to tour in Europe, fearing that "some of them would come back in bodybags". Shortly after, all the band members except for Mars underwent drug rehabilitation; Mars cleaned up on his own.

After finding sobriety in 1989, Mötley Crüe reached its peak popularity with the release of their fifth album, the Bob Rock-produced Dr. Feelgood, on September 1, 1989. On October 14 of that year, it became a No. 1 album and stayed on the charts for 114 weeks after its release. The band members each stated in interviews that, due in no small part to their collective push for sobriety, Dr. Feelgood was their most solid album musically to that point,[citation needed] and indeed, it was their best selling album to date. The title track and "Kickstart My Heart" were both nominated for Grammys in the Best Hard Rock Category. The band did find some success at the American Music Awards, as Dr. Feelgood was nominated twice for Favorite Hard Rock/Metal Award, losing once to Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction, but winning the following year, beating out Aerosmith's Pump and Poison's Flesh & Blood. Mötley Crüe was also nominated twice for Favorite Hard Rock/Metal Artist.

Def Leppard - Buy Your Stadium Tour Tickets

English rockers formed in 1977 in Sheffield as part of the new wave of British heavy metal movement. Since 1992, the band has consisted of Joe Elliott (lead vocals), Rick Savage (bass, backing vocals), Rick Allen (drums, backing vocals), Phil Collen (guitars, backing vocals), and Vivian Campbell (guitars, backing vocals), which has been the band's most stable line-up.

The band's strongest commercial success came between the early 1980s and the early 1990s. Their 1981 album, High 'n' Dry, was produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange, who helped them begin to define their style, and the album's main track "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" became one of the first rock videos played on MTV in 1982. The band's next studio album, Pyromania, was released in January 1983, with "Photograph" and "Rock of Ages" as the lead singles. In the U.S., Pyromania was certified diamond (10× platinum), making Def Leppard among the most popular music groups at the time. In 2003, the album ranked number 384 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Def Leppard's fourth album Hysteria, released in 1987, topped the UK and U.S. album charts. As of 2009, it has reached beyond the success of Pyromania, having been certified 12× platinum for sales of over 12 million in the U.S. and has gone on to sell over 25 million copies worldwide. The album spawned seven hit singles, including the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 number one "Love Bites", alongside "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Hysteria", "Armageddon It", "Animal", "Rocket", and "Women". Their next studio album, Adrenalize (the first following the death of guitarist Steve Clark), reached number one in UK and U.S. charts in 1992, and contained several hits, including "Let's Get Rocked" and "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad". Their 1993 album, Retro Active, contained the acoustic hit song "Two Steps Behind". Their greatest-hits album Vault, released in 1995, featured the UK hit "When Love & Hate Collide".

As one of the world's best-selling music artists, Def Leppard have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, and have two albums with RIAA diamond certification, Pyromania and Hysteria. They are one of only five rock bands with two original studio albums selling over 10 million copies in the U.S. The band were ranked No. 31 in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" and ranked No. 70 in "100 Greatest Artists of All Time". Def Leppard were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

About Poison - Buy Your Stadium Tour Tickets Now

American rockers Poison achieved commercial success in the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s and has sold over 45 million records. The band has charted ten singles in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including six Top 10 singles and the Hot 100 number-one, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn". The band's breakthrough debut album, the multi-platinum Look What the Cat Dragged In, was released in 1986, followed by Open Up and Say... Ahh!, which was certified 5× platinum in the US. Their third consecutive multi-platinum selling album was Flesh & Blood.

Mets reportedly agree to deal with infielder Eduardo Nunez


Debuting with the Yankees in 2010, Nunez played his first four seasons in pinstripes.

New York Knicks practice notes: RJ Barrett ‘continues to make progress’

RJ Barrett

Although RJ Barrett is transitioning from crutches to a walking boot, the New York Knicks will not have their prized rookie back this week.

Danny Small

TARRYTOWN, NY—RJ Barrett is dealing with the first injury of his career, but he’s making progress after suffering a sprained right ankle against the Phoenix Suns. The rookie is now using a walking boot and will be re-evaluated by the team in one week.

During the open part of New York Knicks practice, Barrett was shooting free throws without the boot. He was not moving much at all, but the fact that he can put up shots should be encouraging.

“I think OK,” interim head coach Mike Miller responded when asked about Barrett’s overall mindset during the injury. “Just in conversations, he’s studying the game. He’s talking about things he’s seeing in the game. He’s at a point where he’s played a good number of NBA games and he has this great experience right now, valuable experience.

“And now, he’s taking it from a different perspective, he’s watching and seeing the game differently and seeing the plays that are made, the execution, and all the little details.”

As Miller points out, the injury gives Barrett a different perspective on the game and could be beneficial for his overall development. With that said, the time spent on the sideline can’t be easy for the 19-year-old.

“I know he wants to get out there and play again,” Miller said after practice on Saturday.

Dotson’s confidence soaring

Although Barrett’s injury is the last thing the Knicks want to see, it has opened the door for Damyean Dotson to play more consistent minutes. The third-year guard is taking full advantage of the opportunity.

Prior to Friday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, this writer called for the Knicks to give Dotson a defined role. His performance was further proof that he needs to be a fixture in the rotation.

The energetic guard scored a season-high 21 points on 4-for-7 from three-point land and played the entire fourth quarter of a nailbiter.

“Well, for a second yeah because [Miller] usually brings the starters back in, but I guess I had made a couple shots, had it going a little bit so he stayed with it,” Dotson responded when asked if he thought he would come out at all in the fourth quarter. “You’ve got to play with the game and play with the flow. It is what it is and I appreciate him for leaving me out there.”

Taj Gibson is the most experienced player on the team and he wants to see a little more selfishness from Dotson in the future.

“He’s a phenomenal shooter, we want him to shoot more,” Gibson said. “He’s just so unselfish. He worries more about defense and getting other things, but he’s really one of those young guys that we rely on as far as his leadership around most of the young guys.”

Dotson is really coming into his own, putting up a string of strong performances together when the Knicks needed someone to fill the void left by Barrett.

“It gives you a lot of confidence,” Dotson said about Gibson’s comments. “If your teammates believe in you and your coaches believe in you, then you have no choice but to believe in yourself. I’m getting open looks and guys are looking for me.”

News & Notes

  • The Knicks will face their crosstown-rival Brooklyn Nets on Sunday in Madison Square Garden (6 p.m. ET). The matchup will be the second game in as many nights for Brooklyn. The Nets are in Detroit for a Saturday-night bout with the Pistons.
  • The G League Westchester Knicks will host the Maine Red Claws (Boston Celtics affiliate) on Saturday (5 p.m. ET). Westchester is 13-14 after suffering a loss to the Capital City Go-Go (Washington Wizards affiliate) on Tuesday.

New York Jets Film Room: The anatomy of an INT, featuring Jamal Adams

Jamal Adams, Tarell Basham, Jordan Jenkins

ESNY takes you through the anatomy of a New York Jets defensive interception, featuring Pro Bowler Jamal Adams and Tarell Basham.

Robby Sabo

How do you do, Mr. Pro Bowler? “Very well,” replies Jamal Adams, the New York Jets man of the hour on the eve of the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl.

The best safety in the league will be the Jets’ lone representative when the AFC takes on the NFC in Orlando on Sunday. It’ll mark No. 33’s second-straight appearance, but the first as a First-Team All-Pro—the top honor (other than MVP, Offensive or Defensive Player of the Year) any one football player can achieve. (His Second-Team All-Pro selection a year ago served as an outright crime.)

Anyway, fans aren’t the only individuals who realize the pure brilliance Adams offers up on Sundays. Players do, as well. Minkah Fitzpatrick, Earl Thomas and others couldn’t hold back their applause for the man, ahead of Sunday.

The most interesting Adams moments materialize when his pure impact isn’t fully apparent on the broadcast, the plays in which he creates the play, yet the glory travels elsewhere. It’s what comes to a stud strong safety who can do it all—set the edge, lock down run support, eliminate a tight end in man coverage, handle flat responsibilities or even play a two-deep zone better than most free safeties.

A particular play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16 provides one of those moments. Tarell Basham receives all the glory, yet it was Adams’s actions that locked up the turnover for the Jets.

In a lot of ways, Adams and Basham represent the heart and soul of the Jets’ locker room. The two men are usually the life of the party. Adams is on one side, always up to something, while Basham is the main man usually in control of the tunes, messing around with his teammates while they attempt to remain stout at the podium with the media taking its best shot.


New York Jets

  • Offense: 11 personnel, gun, TE off, 3×1
  • Defense: 2-4-5 Nickel, double-A-gap show, SS box

Gregg Williams rolls with the pressure look. By placing both inside linebackers in the A-gap, the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line is forced to account for seven players at the line of scrimmage (including Adams, who is firmly in the box).

The Steelers offensive line must turn its attention to the left side considering the tight end has a route and the running back will be picking up inside.

The Play

Williams designs a five-man rush with six in coverage. Both A-gap shows are coming, as is Jamal Adams, and the two defensive tackles. Jordan Jenkins—on the viewers’ left side—is dropping, while Basham—on the viewers’ right side—is bluffing into a drop.

New York Jets

Interestingly, Williams loves working on drops in practice. It doesn’t matter if you’re a traditional second-level backer or an edge; you will practice drops into zone coverage at One Jets Drive under Gregg Williams.

The key, as it develops, is Adams timing his rush correctly and beating the left guard to the punch. As long as he beats that left guard and gets to Devlin Hodges, the Steelers offense will be rushed.

New York Jets

The left tackle is forced to pick up Quinnen Williams, who does a tremendous job grabbing his attention. The running back and center have to handle the A-gap situation with both second-level linebackers.

Since the Steelers offensive line had to account for four possible Jets rushers on the left side, the left guard naturally slides left. This is important; the slide left goes against the natural grain that is Adams flying down the A-gap. There’s no shot of the guard stopping in his tracks to pick up an athletic Adams.

New York Jets

Of course, Adams beats the guard, and, at this point, Hodges is forced to make a quick decision.

He thinks he has the tight end on the cross, who’s clearly beyond Jenkins’s zone. But what he doesn’t see is the Basham bluff and drop, which steals the spotlight of the play with his Lynn Swann-like catch.

New York Jets

If Adams doesn’t beat the guard, the one may not happen. Hodges can tuck it, look to get outside the pocket and run for a few, throw it away or even find somebody who breaks off a route.

But No. 33 gets it done, as he did so often when rushing the passer in 2019 (by necessity, mainly, due to the team’s weak edge-rushing situation).

New York Jets

For Basham, it was the first (and only) interception of his career. For Adams, it was yet another brilliant job when rushing the passer, understanding it was his action that would set everything up for the better. For (Gregg) Williams, it was just another example of a perfect scheme.

All year, Williams understood the strengths and weaknesses of his defense, and literally called games with a serious handicap (no conventional four-man pass rush due to weak edges). So what does he do? He brings both inside backers, and Adams, while dropping both edges.

The instant Gregg Williams is blessed with a legit four-man pass rush is the moment this defense becomes one of the best in the NFL. Oh yeah, Adams will also move from “best in the league” to “beyond scary,” when that happens.

For now, all we can do is show you how the defensive mind of Gregg Williams works around the unit’s deficiencies, how Tarell Basham bluffs and drops to perfection, and how Jamal Adams turns a run-of-the-mill rush at the quarterback into the key to a New York Jets turnover.

Brooklyn Nets PG Spencer Dinwiddie will move back to the bench (Report)

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - JANUARY 12: Spencer Dinwiddie #8 of the Brooklyn Nets carries the ball agianst Vince Carter #15 of the Atlanta Hawks at Barclays Center on January 12, 2020 in New York City. Brooklyn Nets defeated the Atlanta Hawks 108-86.NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and or using this photograph, User is consenting to the terms and conditions of the Getty Images License Agreement. Mandatory Copyright Notice: Copyright 2020 NBAE.

The Brooklyn Nets are moving Spencer Dinwiddie back to the bench after experimenting with the guard in the starting lineup.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the Brooklyn Nets are going to bring Spencer Dinwiddie off the bench on Saturday against the Detroit Pistons.

Dinwiddie, 26, has started the last 32 games of the season, but that was due in large part to Kyrie Irving‘s extended absence. Although Dinwiddie played the best basketball of his career while Irving was out, head coach Kenny Atkinson seems to feel like the Nets are better off moving the Colorado product back to the bench.

The outspoken lead guard thrives as a sixth man so this lineup change shouldn’t be seen as a demotion. In fact, he’ll have more of an opportunity to have the ball in his hands if his minutes are staggered with Irving’s. Charania reports that the Nets are likely to go with Caris LeVert or Garrett Temple as Dinwiddie’s replacement.

The Nets have lost five in a row and are mired in a 2-12 slump. Brooklyn needs to change up the mojo and put the season back on track. At 18-25 on the season, the Nets are just 2.5 games ahead of the ninth-place Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference.

With how bad the East is this year, the Nets will have to do a complete nosedive to miss the playoffs, but crazier things have happened. The Bulls, Washington Wizards, and Charlotte Hornets are all within striking distance.

The Nets and the Pistons will tussle on Saturday night (7 p.m. ET) before Brooklyn returns to the Big Apple to play the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden on Sunday evening (6 p.m. ET).

New York Islanders C Mat Barzal wins fastest skater competition (Video)

ST LOUIS, MISSOURI - JANUARY 24: Mathew Barzal #13 of the New York Islanders reacts after competing in the Bridgestone NHL Fastest Skater during the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills Competition at Enterprise Center on January 24, 2020 in St Louis, Missouri.

New York Islanders star Mat Barzal’s speed was on full display on Friday night during the NHL’s fastest skater competition.

There’s a new fastest skater in the NHL. New York Islanders center Mat Barzal took down three-time defending champion Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers Friday night.

Barzal recorded a winning lap time of 13.175 seconds, which defeated both McDavid (13.215) and Chris Kreider of the crosstown New York Rangers (13.509).

Not only did Barzal win, he nearly broke the competition’s all-time record. He finished just .003 seconds behind record-holder Dylan Larkin of the Detroit Red Wings, who posted a 13.172 time in 2016.

“I told Connor (McDavid) when we were out there, I don’t think I could have skated a better lap,” Barzal told the New York Post’s Brett Cyrgalis. “I don’t know if I can do it again.”

With the skating competition in the books, Barzal will next participate in Saturday’s NHL All-Star Game, which will take place at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

A native of Canada, Barzal played three seasons for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League before he was selected with the 16th overall pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft by the Islanders.

This year marks the 22-year-old’s second career All-Star appearance.

This season Barzal has scored 17 goals and picked up 25 assists. He leads the Islanders with 42 points this season just ahead of Brock Nelson (38). He is also posting a career-high plus-three and averaging a career-best 19:28 minutes of ice time.

After the All-Star break, Barzal will look to lead the Islanders back to the postseason before becoming a restricted free agent at season’s end. New York is currently 29-15-5 with 63 points on the season, which has them in third place in the Metropolitan Division.

They’ll return to action on Saturday, Feb. 1, when they play host to the Vancouver Canucks at the Barclays Center (1 p.m. ET).
