NEW YORK (Billboard) – Having racked up an improbably successful reunion tour this year, Motley Crue is heading back on the road in 2006.

The hard rock quartet will close out the year with a December 31 New Year’s Eve show in Auburn Hills, Mich., and then resume touring February 10 in Columbus, Ga.

The trek will focus on secondary markets such as Evansville, Ind., Roanoke, Va., and Sioux Falls, S.D., where it will wrap up on April 1. It will also visit Lincoln, Neb., on March 31, where drummer Tommy Lee filmed his recent reality series, “Tommy Lee Goes to College.”

Afterward, Motley Crue plans to begin work on its first new studio album since 2000’s “New Tattoo.” A handful of new songs were included on the compilation “Red, White & Crue,” which debuted in February at No. 6 on the Billboard 200.

The band’s 2005 roadwork has grossed more than $33 million from 84 shows reported to Billboard Boxscore, 40 of them sell-outs. Saturday (November 19), Motley Crue begins a swing through Japan and Australia that also includes a December 14 show in Honolulu.
