Nikki Sixx Breaks Silence About Vince Neil Using A Teleprompter

Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx took his official Twitter account to support his bandmate, Vince Neil, who has drawn attention for using a teleprompter on the stage in a recent show.

The Stadium Tour, featuring Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Joan Jett, and Poison, has been finally taking place after several delays due to the coronavirus pandemic. The bands have been on the road since its kick-off in Cumberland, Georgia, on June 16, 2022. The long-awaited tour will end with a final performance in Las Vegas on September 9.

Following Mötley Crüe’s show at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, on July 5, as part of the tour, a concertgoer uploaded some video clips of the gig on YouTube, showing Vince Neil using a teleprompter to remember the lyrics of the songs. While some fans criticized the singer for not recalling the classic songs, Neil mostly received support from other rockers who didn’t make it a big deal. They indeed criticized the media for presenting it as important news.

In a recent Twitter post, Nikki Sixx reacted to news about his bandmate. The bassist severely criticized the press for making clickbait to attract more attention. Then, he gave great support to Vince Neil and praised him for working hard on his vocals and the effort he put into delivering the lyrics. Sixx also revealed that the singer has been working extra hard on this tour to give his maximum performance in front of the audience.

Nikki Sixx’s Twitter post read:

“Usual bottom feeder press outlets are trying to make up crap to sell their advertising. Forty-one years of songs, and Vinnie is working on his vocals and delivery of the lyrics. I praise him for working extra hard on this tour. Journalists are usually just scabs making up clickbait.”
