Okay, I'm pretty sure this thread could go here or in Miscellaneous, but since it deals with Motley Crue, I figure Music was the place to start to turn to fellow Ws for possible help.

My girlfriend has an older sister who is developmentally disabled and an enormous Motley Crue fan. She wears a wristband of the Crue everyday to work, she talks about them at great length as if she knows them personally, and she cuts out their pictures to make collages.

Anyway, my partner and I are taking her sister to see Motley Crue on Sunday, March 6th at the MCI Center in Washington, D.C., and I was hoping beyond all hope that there might be some way to get the girl backstage for a moment... maybe see the band, meet someone, at most even snap a picture.

I've tried the radio station sponsoring the show (no response), and the MCI Center connections I have (no luck yet), and I'm working on getting in touch with band management.

I was wondering... would anyone here have any advice/pointers/help that they'd be up for passing along? I think if I could pull this off, it would make the girl's year for sure, and I'd love to see her happy.

My only thought was try to get the media involved. They're a sucker for a good heartwarming story to close the news, and Crue probably would like the good PR.

Other than that, I'd just say to keep at it. My older brother is developmentally disabled, and I know that look that he gets on his face when he's just delighted. If your girlfriend's sister is anything like my brother, then you probably know it's worth going through hell to see that look.

Contact Any Celebrity will get you their agents and publicists' numbers, but you gotta put down some cash for a membership. Well worth it in this situation.

Hip-O Records, their label, might be a good place to start. Also, their management company, which apparantly is 10th Street Entertainment. Through Google I came across a number for the latter for press inquiries, which is 310-385-4776. Worth a try to call there. Chances are one of those two companies would be in the best position to help.

I'd say you can pretty much forget about the radio station. Usually a station "sponsoring" the concert just means that they get their logo on the ad and in the arena in exchanged for promoting the concert on the air. They probably don't have anything to do with the actual production of the thing.

Good luck. I hope it works out for her.

Well, my local radio station is promoting their Wichita gig.

They are going to have call-ins for meet and greet passes. I guess this doesn't really help you out in D.C.
