Alright..they’re doing their big world tour thing and they’ll be stopping through Toronto sometime in February…as far as I know they haven’t toured in a while and probably won’t tour for quite a while after this? Correct me if I am wrong, I’ve only heard vague details…
Breetai For I am not ashamed of the Gospel..
I can pretty much guarantee you that the show will be drinking age only. That’s due to the drinking (duh) and the live strippers on the stage (who will probably also have lots of full on lesbian strap-on sex).

I definately want to see this tour when it comes around (doubt I’ll be able to, though). While I’m not a diehard Crüe fan, I do really like the sound, and the opportunity to see a band that legendary doesn’t come around very often.
I’d like to see some of the topless girls at the Motley Crue gig have Psalm 139:14 written over the top of ’em without any drugs or alcohol being present at the gig. 😉

What was Ulrich’s reaction to seeing Nikki Sixx?
His immediate reaction was to be all "F*ck Motley Crue," which was a mistake because Sixx came after him without a second thought.
What does Nikki Sixx say about the Rock of Ages?
Nikki Sixx says they feel their legacy is too important to do things only for the money, and that they don’t want to be the group that "were cool once.". One way they’ve demonstrated this unflappable attitude is their deal with the Rock of Ages musical and subsequent movie … or rather, the lack thereof.
What is the core structure of Sixx?
There’s just a core structure that guarantees that important decisions are made and necessary things are taken care of.

Who is Motley Crue’s manager?

Who is Vince Neil?
As Ultimate Classic Rock describes, Vince Neil was the first to dip his toes in the side gig pool, leaving the band in 1992 and releasing a solo album a year later. While he did his best to keep the party spirit high as the band proper struggled with murky grunge and misplaced aspirations of growing up, Neil ultimately realized that he was most effective at his day job. According to Loaded Radio, Tommy Lee is not terribly fond of his solo stuff and work with Methods of Mayhem, and even says that solo albums are a waste of time. Nikki Sixx has his Sixx:A.M. supergroup that according to Loudwire may or may not be on a hiatus. Even the elusive Mick Mars has dabbled with solo projects, and though he hasn’t released his album yet, he has said some interesting things about what’s to come. According to Loudwire, the guitar maestro is working on something that’s so different from Motley Crue that it will lose him fans, and he says he intends to keep evolving and reinventing himself.
Is Motley Crue protective of their name?

Nikki Sixx says they feel their legacy is too important to do things only for the money, and that they don’t want to be the group that "were cool once."
