Veteran rockers Motley Crue were soaked on stage as they took part in the charity ice bucket challenge during a show in Virginia on Wednesday night (20Aug14).

The Girls, Girls, Girls hitmakers were nominated for the stunt by fellow rocker Alice Cooper and they took up the challenge in front of thousands of fans at a concert in Virginia Beach.

Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil and Mick Mars were drenched in ice water by members of their production crew to help raise funds for the Als Association to help sufferers of Lou Gehrig's disease, also known as Als and motor neurone disease.

Sixx posted a picture of the soaking online and revealed they had donated $10,000 (£5,882) to the charity and nominated fellow rock bands Kiss, Aerosmith and Def Leppard to follow suit and complete the challenge onstage.

He writes in a series of posts on, "@MotleyCrue just called @KissOnline @Aerosmith and @def_leppard to the ice bucket challenge. You have to (do) it onstage and match our 10k #Als (sic)... Ps we each excepted many friends challenge including @RealAliceCooper tonight. Do it to raise awareness and money for research for #Als."

Kiss frontman Paul Stanley accepted the nomination and agreed to get soaked during the band's show with Def Leppard in Noblesville, Indiana on Friday (22Aug14). In a post on, he writes, "We accept Motley Crue's Als Ice Bucket Challenge! Friday Night in Indy. $10,000 and a whole lotta ice water! (sic)."
