Mötley Crüe have released a series of photographs shot at last night's secret show in London. The band, billed as Dögs Of War, played an 11-song set at the 450-capacity Underworld in Camden. 

The show was originally trailed a week ago, when Mötley Crüe published a flyer on their social media channels advertising a performance by the previously unknown Dögs Of War. This lead many fans to correctly presume that the show was a secret Mötley Crüe gig, a day ahead of their co-headline date with Def Leppard at London's Wembley Stadium. 

“This wasn't our first time playing a secret club show and it will definitely not be the last," say the band in a statement. "We love doing this, especially before larger shows. We love when we can play these intimate shows for our fans."

The band played an 11-song set which included nine Mötley Crüe originals, a medley of covers, and a version of the Beastie Boys' (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!). The band also confirmed that Dögs Of War is the title of one of the songs they've been working on recently with new guitarist John 5 and producer Bob Rock. 

The gallery of images is below, although fans hoping for close-ups of Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil and the gang will be very disappointed. Setlist and full tour dates follow.
