Despite insisting in an online post over the weekend that a reunion was unlikely to take place before 2005, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx appears to have told MTV.com that the band plan to reunite for a tour and possible album next year.
"Three years ago, we decided to take time off to recharge," bassist Nikki Sixx said. "We put the movie deal in place and planned on a tour when all the original bandmembers were ready to work together again. Everything is pretty much right on time."
Sixx said the 2004 world tour will coincide with the release of the big-screen version of "The Dirt", based on the band's over-the-top 2001 autobiography of the same name. The tour will feature singer Vince Neil, Sixx, guitarist Mick Mars and drummer Tommy Lee.
The reunion is surprising given the notoriously bad blood between Lee and Neil — Sixx said the two still have not spoken to each other about the dates.
"We plan on recording new music as well," Sixx said. "I'd like to see us go heavier. When the four of us are together, something magical happens. That's something I've never felt before. All the drama and bullshit aside ... I love playing in MÖTLEY CRÜE."
