Beverage Control To Investigate Virginia Beach Amphitheater Over Crue Video

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is looking into a complaint that the Verizon Wireless Virginia Beach Amphitheater violated it’s liquor license during a Motley Crue concert on September 6th.

The state’s liquor agency was told that a band member carried a video camera through the audience and encouraged women to flash their breasts. The video was shown on the large projection screen behind the band on stage.

Under state law, any establishment that allows lewd, obscene or indecent pictures on its premises can have its ABC license suspended or revoked.

During Motley Crue shows, drummer Tommy Lee routinely persuades women to lift their shirts for the camera. Radio stations and unofficial band web site document the R-rated stripteases.

Leon Coleman, ABC special agent in charge of the Chesapeake regional office, would not elaborate on the investigation to the Virginian-Pilot, but said that the agency had interviewed a person who attended the concert.

The Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office provides security inside the amphitheater, but spokeswoman Paula Miller said no arrests were made at the concert.

The ABC Department has never levied administrative charges against the amphitheater. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
