More Bands Confirmed For Second Annual 'Cruefest Atlanta' Charity Event

HELLYEN, KARMA LINGO, UNCROWNED and MÖTLEY CRÜE tribute band DR. FEELGOOD OF ATLANTA have been confirmed for the second annual Cruefest Atlanta charity event, set to take place June 14, 2009 at the 10 High Club in Atlanta, Georgia. Other scheduled performers include PYROMATIC, THE LOST BOYS, METALSOME INCORPORATED, ANGEL III, THE JULIA DREAM, SMASHED ALLEY and THE SWEAR.

For more than seven years, the association known as "Cruefest" has promoted bands that follow in the MÖTLEY CRÜE spirit. These charity events are held at various locations around the world throughout the year to spotlight these bands and to raise money for the Skylar Neil Foundation and Nikki Sixx's Running Wild in the Night foundation.

Last year, Cruefest Atlanta raised over $4,000 for charity and this year the organizers hope to raise even more.

In 1995, Vince Neil lost his daughter Skylar to cancer. Since that time, he has tried to do everything he can do to help raise awareness and much needed funding for children's illnesses.

To date, charity events across the world have helped Vince raise nearly two million dollars to fund research to combat cancer, AIDS and leukemia.

Event sponsors donate money and merchandise while the bands donate their talent. The highlight of Cruefest Atlanta is the opportunity for MÖTLEY CRÜE fans to get together and raise money for charity.

This charity event is not part of MÖTLEY CRÜE's summer tour known as Crüe Fest.
