Crue & Kiss 2012 Tour

THE WORLD’S BIGGEST ROCK BANDS ON ONE STAGE

THE TOUR

SUMMER 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 20, 2012) – Rock ‘n Roll doesn’t get any bigger than this! KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE… On the same stage… On the same night. This spectacle of spectacles announced today, KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE are uniting to launch THE TOUR of 2012. The summer’s biggest, baddest rock tour will level 40+ cities nationwide starting July 20th. The Live Nation promoted tour will go on sale beginning Friday, March 23rd at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.   Both bands will have fan club pre-sales beginning Wednesday, March 21st at 10am.

Citi® cardmembers will also have access to presale tickets beginning Wednesday, March 21st at 2pm local time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

With combined album sales of almost 200 million, KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE are more than just iconic; they remain today as the dominant powerhouses of rock music tallying 30+ chart-topping hits, countless sold out tours and awards and accolades from around the world. Known for their elaborate and spectacular stage shows, each band plans to give fans the ultimate summer concert experience with the most impressive lighting and sound production ever and their signature over-the-top pyrotechnics. This is the first time KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE will share a stage since 1982.

KISS consists of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. MÖTLEY CRÜE consists of Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee.

These veterans of the music business are still at the height of their popularity. KISS is the juggernaut of them all, with 3,000 licensed merchandise products, including the KISS golf course in Las Vegas and a new album. KISS has broken box office records set by The Beatles and Elvis. MÖTLEY CRÜE is the first rock band in history to have just completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Lee’s 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song due out this spring), but remain on the cutting edge via social media interaction.  MÖTLEY CRÜE’s New York Times bestselling book The Dirt is currently being adapted into a major motion picture.  Last month, the band was featured in one of the highest rated Super Bowl ads of all time for the KIA Optima.

Decades of record-breaking tours around the globe have included high-profile appearances at Super Bowl XXXIII, the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the Rockin’ The Corps concert dedicated to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and special guest appearance on the 2009 American Idol finale that boasted 30 million viewers and a 2010 Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial and advertising campaign in support of their Hottest Show On Earth tour.

Vince Neil To Split From MÖTLEY CRÜE After Las Vegas Shows?

December 21st, 2011
Vince Neil

Vince Neil

According to Robin Leach from the Las Vegas Sun, Vince Neil says he is seriously contemplating a split from MÖTLEY CRÜE after their run of concerts at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel from February 3-19. “It’s not definite, but I am thinking seriously about it,” the Las Vegas resident said.

The news that Vince might be calling it quits comes on the heels of his 50th birthday this year, obtaining final divorce papers from his ex-wife Lia this past weekend and a long year of international touring with both Mötley Crüe and his solo band.

“This is all about me thinking about the second half of my life,” Neil added, “thinking about my future, and that future might not include Mötley Crüe after Vegas. There are so many opportunities that are in front of me that I’m really excited about. I just don’t want to look back later in life and regret that I didn’t pursue them.”

Read the entire interview here.

In other news, Vince Neil will perform a solo show on January 21st at The Rapids Theatre in Niagara Falls, NY.

Sixx:A.M. releases “Lies of the Beautiful People”

February 20th, 2011

Sixx:A.M.

Sixx:A.M.

CLICK HERE to watch and listen to Sixx:AM’s, “Lies of the Beautiful People”.

Well, the book and album are finally done. They fit together like a nice little puzzle yet somehow feel like the pieces were cut out of flesh with a razorblade. What I find interesting is that as much as I want them to mirror each other, they both stand on their own. They influence each other as much as possible yet each is strong and independent, from the visual stimulation in the photography to the lyrical content in the songs. To say that this project has been overwhelming would be an understatement. But the one thing that keeps tugging at my curiosity is that if I find beauty in all these places that most deem “Freakish” and “Macabre” then why do I also, at times, seek out beauty in what society calls beautiful? Am I contradicting myself or am I able to actually look beneath the surface when others sometimes can’t? This is a good question. Make no mistake when I refer to “The lies of beautiful people” I mean what I say but I am also saying look beneath the skin. I do not and will not attack the exterior of anybody but my intention is to pull back the veil on your internal truth. We need not worry if we are black, white, amputated, burned, maimed, a fashion model, or even have the face of Hollywood’s latest leading man… We are who we are… Either poisonous and evil or honest and willing… Willing to make a difference… I haven’t led the life of a saint nor do I intend on it now. That’s not what this is about. There were some things that needed to be said… Unbeknownst to me, they would spread across both a book and an album. I imagine that Sixx:A.M. and the book both stand to take a few shots in the jaw, a few bricks in the face. I know, speaking for myself, James, and DJ, that we welcome the feedback. Maybe, just maybe, everybody will take a hard, cold, eye opening look under the hood, so to speak as we have…

MÖTLEY CRÜE – First Demo: “Toast of The Town”

October 27th, 2010
Motley Crue - old promo photo 1981/82

Motley Crue - old promo photo 1981/82

TMD has obtained an extremely rare studio version of the track “Toast of The Town” from the very first MÖTLEY CRÜE demo session produced in early 1981, which subsequently became the act’s  debut single “Stick to Your Guns/Toast of the Town,” that was put out on their own label, Leathür Records. The young and fearless metal act had scored a pressing & distribution deal with Greenworld Distribution in Torrance, CA.

The track was left off CRÜE’s legendary debut album Too Fast For Love which was released in December of 1981 but then was included in the re-released version of TFFL in 2003 when Elektra Records ordered TFFL complete re-mixes to include “Stick to Your Guns” and “Toast of the Town”.

MÖTLEY CRÜE – Rare 1981 “Live Wire” Audience Recording

October 24th, 2010

Motley Crue - old promo photo 1981/82

Motley Crue - old promo photo 1981/82

TMD has obtained one of the earliest known live audience recordings of legendary MÖTLEY CRÜE performing “Live Wire” at the Whisky A-Go-Go in West Hollywood, California on December 11, 1981.

Mötley Crüe was founded on January 17, 1981 when bass player Nikki Sixx quit the band London and began rehearsing with drummer Tommy Lee and vocalist/guitarist Greg Leon. Lee had worked before with Greg Leon in Hollywood glam metal act Suite. The three jammed together for some time with Leon ultimately deciding to leave the fold. The bassist and drummer then began a search for new members. Sixx and Lee soon met guitarist Bob “Mick Mars” Deal through an ad in “The Recycler”. Mars was immediately auditioned and then hired to join the lineup. The group was still in dire need of a lead vocalist. Tommy Lee had known Vince Neil from back in their high school years. Upon seeing him perform with the group Rock Candy at the Starwood in Hollywood, Mars suggested Mötley Crüe hire Vince.

The act’s debut single was “Stick to Your Guns/Toast of the Town,” which they put out on their own label, Leathür Records, which had a pressing & distribution deal with Greenworld Distribution in Torrance, CA. It is also known that the single was distributed at concerts they performed at.

During November 1981, their debut album Too Fast for Love was self-produced and released on Leathür, selling 20,000 copies. This soon led to interest from Electra records.

It’s a rare glimpse nearly three decades back in time at the Crue rocking it out in their blazing Hollywood club days. Strap yourselves in for some heavy metal history!

Listen to the extremely rare recording below!
