SIXX:A.M. WITH APOCALYPTICA | “The Modern Vintage Tour” 2015

Nikki Sixx isn’t sitting idle waiting for the Mötley Crüe farewell tour.  He took his band, SIXX A.M., on the road for the month of April with Apocalyptica as openers.  I had the pleasure of photographing the Las Vegas date, at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino on April 10th.  The venue was packed and I met fans who came from Japan to see this show!.   Nikki Sixx is a fan favorite no matter what band he’s touring with and has a blast onstage with the guys in SIXX A.M.: guitarist, DJ Ashba; singer, James Michael and touring drummer, Dustin Steinke.   SIXX A.M. is a solid rock band and puts on a great show.

Apocalyptica, with three cello players playing rock/heavy metal was so much fun to watch and photograph.  Long hair flying while cellos are rocking out is beyond cool!

This night had close ties to Las Vegas with Sixx A.M.’s DJ Ashba and Apocalyptica Singer Franky Perez both calling Las Vegas home.  It’s always fun to see hometown talent on the big stage at the Hard Rock!
