MÖTLEY CRÜE's set list for the The Palladium in Hollywood, CA – December 6, 2004:

01. Dr. Feelgood
02. Shout At The Devil
03. If I Die Tomorrow
04. Girls, Girls, Girls
05. Wild Side

Regarding the band's several-year hiatus prior to the reformation, bassist Nikki Sixx told Reuters, "For as much as it's like 'Wow! This is like the ultimate rollercoaster ride in life' it was kinda nice to get off that for a little while. But I'm jonesin' for the thrill now."

The first leg of the tour, taking in North American arenas, will begin on Feb. 17 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Even though 2004 was a dismal year for touring and MÖTLEY CRÜE's last few jaunts were not exactly hot tickets, Sixx was confident the band had the goods to bring the fans in.

"We wanna be louder, we wanna be fuckin' ruder. We want more, more, more. That's fuckin' MÖTLEY CRÜE style," Sixx told Reuters. "We're back in ... It's gonna freak you out. Trust me, no one's seen anything like this in years."

Despite plenty of friction within the band in the past, Sixx claimed the atmosphere was now "perfect ... We don't stop laughing."

The secret, as in any relationship, he said is communication.

"Our heads are haunted," Sixx said. "We don't think like anybody else that I know. When I talk to Tommy [Lee, drums] and I say A, he says Q. He doesn't say B. And Vince [Neil, vocals] says Z. And that's why things that happen, happen in a weird dysfunctional way."
