MÖTLEY CRÜE Are Cleaning Up Their Act

The New York Post's "Page Six" reports: MÖTLEY CRÜE's dishy tell-all, "The Dirt", established them as one of the most debauched rock bands of all time — but you wouldn't know it from the boring backstage scene at their concert in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the other night. The kick-off show of the glam-rock gods' "Red, White, and Crüe 2005...Better Live Than Dead" was notable for a distinct lack of sex and drugs. Singer Vince Neil's tweezer-addicted new wife, Lia, was watching him like a hawk, and bassist Nikki Sixx, who's married to bimbonic Donna D'Errico, refused to let groupies into his dressing room. Pasty-faced guitarist Mick Mars, who looks downright cadaverous, was lucky to make it through the concert without falling over. "He looks like death," says our tipster. "I'm surprised he can even stand up during their long show." The only CRÜE member who looked like he was having any fun was drummer Tommy Lee, who allowed a legion of skanky lovelies into his dressing room. "It was pretty boring backstage," summed up our spy. "The band is older, been through rehab, and you could barely find a beer — definitely not a drug bacchanalia."

In other news, another date has been announced for the summer/fall leg of MÖTLEY CRÜE's "Red, White, and Crüe 2005...Better Live Than Dead" tour. Confirmed summer/fall dates so far are as follows:

Sep. 18 - Southaven, MS @ Desoto County Civic Center
Sep. 23 - North Little Rock, AR @ ALLTEL Arena
