MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has posted the following message in his online diary:
"Today I went out here in San Antonio and bought [wife] Donna and myself a 20-year-old Hasselblad 500 el/m.its a medium format camera that I think will help us both step into the next dimension. We're excited to get into our studio and let the paint, film, acting and music fly... thank you for letting me share in our loves and passions.
"'Home Sweet Home' the video and single will be hitting the airwaves (radio, iTunes, AOL, etc. etc.) here any day now as well as the video. It's a great cause and we hope to generate a lot of money and awareness for the victims of all the recent hurricanes, most notably New Orleans. I spoke to the powers that be at MTV today and there very excited about the video.
"The tour is winding down and I think as much as we all love this tour, a break is in order for us all. We've been on the road since February 14th and we will go out in February and March again before we record the next record, but first were going to Australia, Japan and Hawaii. Far be it for us to complain; we're very grateful to be given a second chance at doing what we love to do.....so thank you."
In other news, MÖTLEY CRÜE have announced that they will return to Atlanta's Philips Arena on March 15, 2006. This is a make-up date for the show in Atlanta on Sept. 16, which was cut short after five songs when singer Vince Neil tore the medial portion of his calf muscle and was forced to leave the stage. The date was part of the band's ongoing, successful "Carnival of Sins" world tour that began last February.
Tickets for the Sept. 16 show will be honored on the new date. Prices are $77 and $47 plus applicable service charges. All are for reserved seating and all ages are welcome.
For those who missed out the first time around, additional tickets will be available to see MÖTLEY CRÜE on the new date. Tickets are available at peterconlonpresents.com, all Ticketmaster locations, or charge by phone at (404) 249-6400.
