Watch Mick Mars Play His First Post-Motley Crue Show

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Mick Mars turned up at the Ernie Ball Music Man Pickers’ Paradise show in Nashville on June 23, taking the stage for the first time since Mötley Crüe ended their farewell tour on New Year’s Eve.

Mars’ brief time on stage found him playing cover tunes like the version of Led Zeppelin‘s “Rock and Roll” that was captured in the fan-shot footage above, performing with a band fronted by singer Kenny Olson. He later took to Twitter to offer Ernie Ball and the audience thanks.

The Nashville show comes in the midst of preparations for Mars’ first post-Crüe LP, which looks likely to come out as a collaborative effort with John Corabi, the singer who briefly replaced Vince Neil in the band during the early to mid-’90s. Corabi revealed plans for the two to reunite in 2015, saying, “Mick and I have had some discussions about possibly going in and doing some writing together and doing a record, and maybe going out and doing some shows. So we’ll see how that works.”

The two entered the studio early this year, with Mars posting a photo from the sessions and sharing his enthusiasm for the “new, fresh, greasy LOUD ASS, slamming music” they’d already tracked. Details of the project have yet to be revealed, but in February, Mars and Corabi released a 30-second clip of music from their work in progress.

Mötley Crüe’s concert film from their final show, suitably titled The End, screened in theaters earlier this month; news of a home release for the movie is expected shortly.
