Motley Crue Headlining Tour With Support From Poison and Special Guests New York Dolls Kicks Off June 7th in Dallas; Tickets on Sale Now

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 1, 2011) - Motley Crue, one of the world's most iconic rock bands, hosted a special gathering at Bamboozle tonight revealing details about their summer tour. The unveiling included images and a description of their new set design, the set list decided by fans and a surprise announcement of Tommy Lee's "360" drum rollercoaster.

"We're looking forward to being together again and to a really special production. It will also be cool to sing some of these songs we haven't performed together in almost 20 years," said front man Vince Neil.

The band's veteran production manager and set designer, Robert Long, presented graphic renderings of the new set design, which he described as "a hard-hitting Crue rendition of a rock n' roll burlesque theatre." According to Long, the entire stage will be enveloped in red velvet drapery and a damask printed wall of guitar amps.

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

Motley Crue's drummer Tommy Lee shared that he will once again be thrill-seeking on the Crue's new "360" drum rollercoaster. During his drum solo, Lee will be launched into multiple loops while continuing to perform.

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 Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00pm local time (check www.sixxsense.com for a list of stations).
