Mötley Crüe Launch Summer U.S. Tour Tonight

Mötley Crüe Launch Summer U.S. Tour Tonight

Mötley Crüe are launching their summer tour tonight, June 7, in Dallas. This tour has an unusual spin to it, however: For the first time, the band have called on their fans to decide everything, from the support acts -- Poison and the New York Dolls -- to the songs chosen. 

For the final set list, the band - Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums) - listed every recorded song and surveyed fans at; so the shows will include some songs the band hasn’t performed live in almost 20 years. Robert Long, the band’s production manager and set designer, describes the tour’s set design as “a hard-hitting Crüe rendition of a rock 'n’ roll burlesque theatre.”

“We’re excited to get back out on the road and launch this new, huge production on our headlining run in the U.S.,” Neil says.

Fans also get to see the band’s new “360” vertical drum rollercoaster, which will involves Lee being launched into vertical loops while continuing to perform.
