MÖTLEY CRÜE To Perform 'Dr. Feelgood' In Its Entirety On CRÜE FEST 2

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of "Dr. Feelgood", which became MÖTLEY CRÜE's first #1 album on the Billboard chart. To celebrate the anniversary, the band plans to theme the second edition of its festival tour, Crüe Fest, with imagery inspired by "Dr. Feelgood". MÖTLEY CRÜE will reveal details of the tour at a major press conference from the Fuse TV studios on March 16 in New York City and Fuse will air press conference highlights at 9 p.m. ET/PT that evening.

Eleven Seven Music/Mötley Records will re-release "Dr. Feelgood" later this spring. Originally released on September 1, 1989, "Dr. Feelgood" reached #1 on the Billboard chart and went on to sell more than 7 million copies worldwide, producing 5 Billboard Hot 100 hits. The title track reached #7 on the Hot 100 and earned the band its first two Grammy nominations ("Best Hard Rock Performance" for "Dr Feelgood" in 1989 and "Kickstart My Heart" in 1990).

Commented MÖTLEY CRÜE's Nikki Sixx, "On this summer's Crüe Fest we really wanted to give the fans something they've never seen before. And since its the 20th anniversary of the release of 'Dr. Feelgood', we figured what better way to celebrate than to play it live TOP TO BOTTOM every night."

Crüe Fest 2 will kick off Sunday, July 19 at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ.
