LOS ANGELES, CA (February 25, 2013) – MÖTLEY CRÜE unveiled today the details of their 2013 Canadian tour, which marks the most expansive run of Canada in the band’s history. The tour will commence this spring with a total of 18 show dates, kicking off on April 20 on the West Coast, and running through May 14 when the band completes the tour in the nation’s capital; this will be the only time the band will perform in Canada through 2013. MÖTLEY CRÜE will be joined by special guests Big Wreck; the full tour has been listed below.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, the quartet—Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee, has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years.
In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, three Grammy nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance and countless sold out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans.
The first rock band in history to have completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, MÖTLEY CRÜE 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 “Sex” released in summer 2012), but remain on the forefront of entertainment via cutting edge social media interaction.
MÖTLEY CRÜE have lured Canadian rockers Big Wreck to join them on the massive tour across their home and native land. Big Wreck frontman, songwriter and producer Ian Thornley’s ‘well-schooled Zeppelin inspired rock’ secured the Rock Album of the Year Juno nomination for Big Wreck’s current album Albatross. The five-piece guitar-laden band is sure to bring their sing-a-long radio hits such as “The Oaf”, Blown Wide Open”, “That Song” and “Ladylike” as well the most played rock single of the year – their smash “Albatross” as a suitable primer for the ‘Crue.
