MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx invited his SIXX: A.M. bandmates James Michael and D.J. Ashba back on his "Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx" radio show for a recap of all the action from SIXX: A.M.'s first headlining tour. Hear about the taser wars, new tattoos and tour bus hijinx in the audio clip below.
SIXX: A.M.'s "Modern Vintage" tour included a limited number of dates all across North America. While on the road, the prolific band was in the process of writing music for its upcoming fourth full-length album, which is tentatively due in 2016.
Known as strong advocates of new music, the members of SIXX: A.M. consciously curated a global lineup for the current tour by bringing along special guests APOCALYPTICA from Finland and VAMPS from Japan to introduce their fans to some of the most exciting new rock music from around the world.
To round out its live lineup, SIXX: A.M. added drummer Dustin Steinke of BLEEKER RIDGE into the mix for the tour, as well as backup singers Melissa Harding and Amber VanBuskirk. Ashba said: "We really wanted to create a great, over-the-top live experience on this tour like all the artists of the late '60s and early '70s did who influenced our music.
"Dustin is an amazing drummer who fits in perfectly with James, Nikki and myself. Adding him, as well as singers Melissa and Amber, to our touring lineup really allows us to create the big-sounding show we had always envisioned for SIXX: A.M. live."
