MÖTLEY CRÜE's manager at Tenth Street Entertainment has told Billboard.com that talk that the group will be announcing a tour Monday (Dec. 6) at a press event on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, Calif., is premature."Anyone showing up at the Whisky on Monday will be with a bunch of other people holding a seance trying to will this thing to happen," MÖTLEY CRÜE manager Allen Kovac told Billboard.com. Kovac says the band has received "generous" offers to tour in both the United States and United Kingdom. "We're holding buildings, sitting down and negotiating with everyone, but nothing is done," Kovac added. So what is done? "I know there's a [new] single and I know there's a video," he said. "And they're getting great response, which will help get this [tour] done. But I assure you there isn't anything happening in front of the Whisky on Monday." Kovac added, "This is MÖTLEY CRÜE we're talking about. Everyone is expecting a concert, and a wrestling match may break out." The logo of national arena promoter AEG Live appears on a widely distributed invitation/banner ad that teases "coming soon to an arena near you," as does that of Island Records, though Kovac claims, "in 30 years I've never gone with a national promoter."
