MTLEY CRE's NIKKI SIXX Says POISON Fans 'Run Like Scared Little Mice'

Bassist Nikki Sixx of California rock veterans MTLEY CRE, who are currently completing a North American tour with support from POISON and NEW YORK DOLLS, tweeted the following earlier today:

"You can tell the die-hard CRE-heads from POISON fans because they run like scared little mice when the blood comes out... Sadly, they've lost the plot on why rock 'n' roll exists. It's not built on fear, it's about pushing buttons."

In her review of MTLEY CRE's July 15 concert at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, Lorraine Schwartz of wrote, "Now, one might wonder, how do you know when a MTLEY CRE show is over? Is it when they play the last chord of 'Kickstart My Heart'? Is it after the last blast of pyro flame has extinguished? No. It's when you're bathed in blood. Front-row CRE fans, consider yourself warned: if you didn't get sprayed by prankster Sixx's blood spit during the main part of the show, that doesn't mean you can breathe a sigh of relief. Let's just say if you're standing near one of the buckets quietly placed along the stage edge, you should think about running soon. That's all I will say."

Video footage of Sixx and MTLEY CRE drummer Tommy Lee spitting and throwing fake blood on the crowd at several of the concerts on the current tour can be seen below.

MTLEY CRE's current headlining trek with POISON and NEW YORK DOLLS kicked off on June 7 at Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, Texas and will hit approximately more than 40 cities before coming to a close later this month.

The initial tour announcement by Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and NEW YORK DOLLS' David Johansen was made on the syndicated radio show "Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx"on March 1.

During a May 1 press conference at Bamboozle in East Rutherford, New Jersey, MTLEY CRE's veteran production manager and set designer, Robert Long, presented graphic renderings of the new set design, which he described as "a hard-hitting CRE rendition of a rock 'n' roll burlesque theatre." According to Long, the entire stage is enveloped in red velvet drapery and a damask printed wall of guitar amps.

Continuing to integrate the input of their fans, MTLEY CRE conducted a survey by listing every song they have ever recorded. Fans voted at for the final set list, which includes tracks band hasn't performed live together in almost 20 years.
