Nova Scotia Man Works To Get MÖTLEY CRÜE To Halifax

Canada's CBC News has issued the following report:

First it was the ROLLING STONES, now [a Nova Scotia] man is hoping aging rockers MÖTLEY CRÜE will consider a tour stop in the region, and he's using an online petition to help make his point.

Terry Frizzell has been a MÖTLEY CRÜE fan for 20 years. He first heard the band when he was 9 years old, remembering that his cousins used to listen to the band.

When he turned 29 in March his birthday present was a ticket to see the band in Boston.

Known for big hair, levitating drum kits, loud anthems and backstage antics, the band has recorded 15 albums.

"Their music is just so powerful, it's got that party atmosphere to it. They are the ultimate sex drug and rock and roll band," Frizzell said on Thursday.

He started musing about bringing the heavy metal band to the area on a website where fans discuss the band. From there Frizzell decided to revive interest in an online petition someone else started a while back.

He's not sure what it take to convince the band to play Halifax, but he's doing what he can.

"My sister is going to make up some posters for me, and give some more life to it. I know this petition will help, the fans are here, it's just to make them aware of it," said the auto parts store worker.

The band is on tour this year, and has one tour stop in Canada, a late August date in Toronto. Another leg of the tour will see the band along the eastern seaboard, and Frizzell said there are a couple of free days where the band could fit in a concert.

He said friends often tease him about being stuck in the 80s, but he answers it is no different than people who grew up in the 60s or 70s and are still listening to music from that era.
