VH1 will cover the announcement live and the Strip will be shut down.

MÖTLEY CRÜE have set "Red, White and Crüe" as the title of their upcoming greatest-hits collection, tentatively due in January/February 2005. The set is expected to include at least one new song recorded recently with the band's original lineup of Neil, Nikki Sixx (bass), Tommy Lee (drums) and Mick Mars (guitar).

In addition to the greatest-hits CD, MÖTLEY CRÜE will be releasing their first-ever DVD featuring the band's four original members. Plans also exist for an "all-star" tribute album to MÖTLEY CRÜE, with a target release date of September 2005. Also in the works is a soundtrack to "The Dirt", the forthcoming Paramount film based on the best-selling autobiography of MÖTLEY CRÜE.

The U.S. leg of MÖTLEY CRÜE's upcoming reunion tour will take place in February/March 2005. A European tour will follow in the summer.
