Motley Crue kicked off their much-hyped residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas last night, two months after announcing it during an appearance on CNN’s ‘Piers Morgan Tonight.’ Sin City was so excited that yesterday was declared "Motley Crue Day" there, while fans likely from around the globe flooded into town for the kickoff of the stand, which will cover a dozen dates through Feb. 19.

"First shows are always cool 'cause they're not perfect and sometimes it feels like the band and crowd are surfing the chaos together," bassist Nikki Sixx raved earlier in the day Friday. "We had so much fun [rehearsing] last night. Back to rehearsal today to work on some more stuff we're adding tonight. So excited for tonight; so many of our friends showing up. Maybe we should pull someone on stage to jam?"

And now for a peak into what went down on opening night, we direct you to footage from the first gig that has surfaced on YouTube. Remember, these clips are fan shot, so the video and especially the audio don't quite capture what it was like to be there. But still, you get a little taste into the spectacle of Crue in Sin City. So, without further ado...
