MÖTLEY CRÜE's 'Crüe Fest 1' DVD Tops BILLBOARD Chart

The two-disc DVD set containing footage from last year's inaugural edition of MÖTLEY CRÜE's own festival-style package tour Crüe Fest sold 7,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at position No. 1 on Billboard's Top Music Videos chart. The set contains the full CRÜE concert from on August 28, 2008 at Toronto, Ontario, Canada's Molson Amphitheatre along with select tracks from the other bands that took part in the festival — BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH, TRAPT and SIXX: A.M..

Across North America, over the 40 nights of Crüe Fest, MÖTLEY CRÜE cranked out three decades of their loudest rock hits backed by a huge fiery post-apocalyptic setting full of pyrotechnics and fireworks — a spectacle fit for the CRÜE. The larger-than-life, Los Angeles theme pays homage to the band's first new studio album in over a decade, the Grammy-nominated "Saints of Los Angeles". This rock extravaganza was the most successful rock festival of the summer and was nominated for a Billboard Touring Award. Filmed in Toronto at the Molson Amphitheater on August 28, 2008 by director P.R. Brown, this event captures the decadence, energy, noise and sweat that was Crüe Fest with a 15-camera high-definition shoot, mixed in 5.1 sound.
