‘The Last Vegas’ lead singer Chad Cherry pleads ‘I’m Bad’ to Mr. Media

When The Last Vegas woke up the morning of Monday, November 10, 2009, they were one of six final unsigned bands left of nearly 8,000 original entrants in the Guitar Center On Stage contest. After a demanding performance later that evening at the world famous Whisky A-Go-Go, The Last Vegas claimed a victory that catapulted them into a dream sequence of writing, recording and producing their first single as a signed band and a gig opening for Motley Crue at the Hollywood Palladium four days later. It was that night at the Palladium when the announcement was made the band would also be going on tour with Motley in 2009.

"The overall talent and energy of The Last Vegas surpassed our expectations," said Motley Crue's Vince Neil. "Motley Crue is excited to pass the torch on to these amazing musicians, just as Ozzy did for us over 25 years ago."

A whirlwind musical journey shortly ensued for The Last Vegas. After they were hand picked as winners by the members of Motley Crue, the band immediately went into the studio to record their first single, "I'm Bad."
