Video of the Motley Crue concert at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena October 19, 1997.  An infamous concert because of the following as reported by MTV News:

Mötley Crüe Pre-Show Porn A Problem

October 22 [14:00 EDT] -- Rockers Mötley Crüe can't seem to stay out of trouble.

Last Sunday, the guys were backstage getting ready to perform at Pittsburg's Civic Arena, when DJ Larceny, who was spinning between acts, encouraged the crowd to chant "porn."

Then, lo and behold, a pornographic video was projected onto the screen featuring a naked woman masturbating and performing oral sex.

The band has denied involvement with or knowledge of the video, but the Pittsburgh police and district attorney's office are investigating, and expect to file charges against the DJ and possibly the production company in the next week.

Police commander William Joyce said "this kind of thing has happened before with this band, but whether the band was involved this time, we have yet to determine."

At this time, phone calls to the Crüe camp haven't been returned.
