MÖTLEY CRÜE: 25 New North American Tour Dates Officially Announced

During their live performance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on New Year's Eve, MÖTLEY CRÜE announced that, per intense fan demand, they are adding 25 new dates to their "Red, White & Crüe Tour 2005 ... Better Live Than Dead", presented by VH1 and VH1 Classic. Reuniting for a major tour for the first time in six years, MÖTLEY CRÜE has been the hottest ticket around. Since initially going on sale December 11 with the first 25 dates, the tour is now #1 on Pollstar's "Top 50 Tours."

After the initial 25 dates were announced at a Los Angeles press conference on December 6, fans in markets where dates had yet to be announced took to the Internet with "Bring The Crüe" campaigns, with thousands of fans using online petitions and the support of local radio stations to plead with MÖTLEY CRÜE to bring their show to them. At last count, campaigns had been launched in over 30 cities in North America.

According to Billboard magazine, this is the touring industry's worst year in history. Despite that, MÖTLEY is seeing great success. Allen Kovac, CEO of 10th Street Entertainment, MÖTLEY CRÜE's management company, said, "As soon as the initial tickets went on sale for the tour, we got offers for 70 more cities ... but we can only schedule 25 shows because of our European schedule so MÖTLEY CRÜE have let the fans decide where they are going."

Following is a complete list of MÖTLEY CRÜE's initial North American arena dates. The new dates will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, January 8 but fans wishing to get a jump on box office demand can get tickets early by going to www.vh1.com beginning January 3. Canadian fans can also get tickets early by going to www.hob.ca beginning January 3.
