The timing is right for Motley Crue's Tommy Lee to speak up as the band rolls into Calgary for a show this week. Lee, who is an avid animal rights supporter, has penned an open letter to the Honorable Premier of Alberta, Alison Redford, asking for her support in putting an end to the long running Calgary Stampede chuckwagon races.
The finish line may be in sight for Motley Crue, and frontman Vince Neil is the latest to speak about the band's plans for winding down their career. The rocker tells the Toronto Sun that it now appears as though their next album will arrive in 2014 and will start the beginning of the end for their career.
Back in February of 2012, Motley Crue broke new ground for the rock genre with a successful residency at The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. The 12-show run proved to be a huge success for the band, so much so in fact, that they are preparing to shower the Sin City with their signature brand of pure debauchery all over again with a return engagement.
It's been an eventful 24 hours for Motley Crue vocalist Vince Neil. As we previously reported, the band had to end their Sunday (March 10) performance in Sydney, Australia, early when Neil was rushed to the hospital and it was later revealed that the singer was suffering from kidney stones. Now comes word that the vocalist underwent surgery to remove the stones.
Motley Crue played an abbreviated set Sunday night (March 10) in Sydney, Australia, after singer Vince Neil could no longer continue and had to be rushed to a local hospital. Guitarist Mick Mars took to Twitter a little after the fact to reveal that the singer was suffering from kidney stones and that the pain got the better of him.
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has been very forthcoming about his band going out with guns blazing. Determined to end on a high note, Sixx claims in a new interview that after Crue release their highly anticipated new album, complete the movie adaptation of the band's autobiography, 'The Dirt,' release the film's soundtrack and embark on a farewell tour, the iconic group will disband permanently.
Motley Crue may be enjoying the Australian summer down under at the moment, but the band will return to North America later this spring for more shows. The group recently announced an April-May trek that would take them through Canada, and now they've tacked on a number of U.S. stops to fill out their May itinerary.
Nikki Sixx may be touring down under with Motley Crue in Australia, but the bassist is keeping his mind creatively occupied with ideas for his other band Sixx: A.M. as well. In his latest Australian tour journal, the bassist reveals that he's been working on new music during his downtime on the road.
