During a recent show that is part of The Stadium Tour, an audience member caught some footage of the onstage teleprompter that Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil uses for live shows. In the videos you will find below, you can find Vince Neil near the teleprompter, which provides him the lyrics to the band’s music.
For some bands and artists who have a great deal of material released, a teleprompter is a helpful tool to assist them with remembering the lyrics to their songs. But, much like the great controversy that surrounds the use of backing tracks – as well as those singers who lip sync to their music – there are probably some folks who may get irked by the use of a singer having to rely on a teleprompter to remember the lyrics to their own songs.
What are your feelings on Vince Neil having to use a teleprompter during the band’s live shows? Do you think it is understandable, or that he should know the words to his own work? When it comes to intense opinions, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently shared some harsh words regarding bands who use backing tracks. Kiss singer Paul Stanley also recently caught some flack over an alleged lip syncing incident as well (with ex-Kiss member Ace Frehley poking fun at him).
