Meltdown of Detroit, Michigan’s WRIF 101.1 FM radio station conducted an interview with MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx on June 29 at the DTE Energy Music Center in Clarkston, Michigan.
MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s current headlining trek with support from POISON and special guests NEW YORK DOLLS kicked off on June 7 at Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, Texas and will hit approximately more than 40 cities before coming to a close in August.
The initial tour announcement by Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and NEW YORK DOLLS‘ David Johansen was made on the syndicated radio show “Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx”on March 1.
During a May 1 press conference at Bamboozle in East Rutherford, New Jersey, MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s veteran production manager and set designer, Robert Long, presented graphic renderings of the new set design, which he described as “a hard-hitting CRÜE rendition of a rock ‘n’ roll burlesque theatre.” According to Long, the entire stage is enveloped in red velvet drapery and a damask printed wall of guitar amps.
Continuing to integrate the input of their fans, MÖTLEY CRÜE conducted a survey by listing every song they have ever recorded. Fans voted at Motley.com for the final set list, which includes tracks band hasn’t performed live together in almost 20 years.
