SIXX: A.M., the new band featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx, will postpone its spring tour "due to unforeseen circumstances and will most likely hit the road in the summer of 2008," according to a statement released by the group.
SIXX: A.M. recently let fans vote at VoteSixxAM.com on which cities the group should play in. Those votes have now been counted and will be instrumental in determining which markets the band visits in the future.
Sixx wrote and recorded an album under the name SIXX: A.M. with longtime friends James Michael and D.J. Ashba and has resisted the idea of turning the project into an actual band. But Sixx told The Pulse of Radio that may all be changing. "It seems that people have been able to really feel that it's a band, they really feel that it's something that they can get behind and they can go, 'You know, I really support these guys in what they're doing,'" he said. "It's interesting 'cause we never planned on playing live together, and then we played live together, and that went off so well that I think we accidentally started a band."
Rumors initially surfaced that SIXX: A.M. would tour in February, although Sixx shot down those reports. The project has only played live once so far, last fall at a Utah radio festival.
The SIXX: A.M. album serves as the "soundtrack" to Sixx's recently published book, "The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star".
Twenty-five percent of Sixx's royalties from "The Heroin Diaries" goes to Running Wild In The Night, a charity he established in conjunction with Covenant House to rescue homeless and runaway youth from the streets.
