Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx says, “This is what we imagined when we came up with the idea of Crue Fest last summer – putting together the most kick ass bands on one bill for a day of rock. All of the bands on this tour compliment the others — musically, theatrically and passionately.”
To kick off the press conference, Motley Crue stopped lunch hour traffic in New York City arriving at Fuse in a Dr. Feelgood era ambulance accompanied by scantily clad nurses. As previously announced, the band is celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first #1 album by playing Dr. Feelgood from beginning to end every night of Crue Fest 2. In addition, fans can expect Motley Crue to bring out hits from their entire catalog through their latest hit, Saints of Los Angeles.
