Vince Neil’s next gig will be two weeks behind bars, as the rocker pleaded guilty Wednesday to driving drunk on the Las Vegas Strip last summer.

A temporary judge accepted Neil’s agreed-upon plea deal after the Mötley Crüe frontman arrived to court 90 minutes early and got a jump on reporters, according to The Associated Press.

A court spokeswoman told the wire service the “Girls, Girls, Girls” singer was allowed to move up his case to allow him time to make a family court appearance elsewhere in Sin City.

Per the terms of Neil’s plea agreement that were reported last week, the rocker begins serving 15 days in the Clark County jail on Feb. 15, followed by as many days on house arrest.

That leaves him free to celebrate his 50th birthday next week, the AP reported.

Last week, the rocker and “Skating with the Stars” alum said he accepted “full responsibility” for his arrest.

"I have recognized that you can't drink and drive at all,'' he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal in a statement.

Neil was busted June 27 for speeding in his Lamborghini near the Las Vegas strip.

Cops said at the time Neil failed three tests to determine if he was drunk and a breath test showed his blood alcohol content at nearly three times the legal limit.

Back in the ‘80s, Neil pleaded guilty to drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter for being behind the wheel in a crash that resulted in the death of Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley and that seriously injured two others.

He went on to serve 15 days of a 30-day jail sentence, paid $2.5 million to his victims and performed 200 hours of community service, according to E!
