One of Pollstar’s Top Five-grossing tours of the year with an estimated 1 million fans attending the concerts in the U.S.
Los Angeles, CA, 9 October 2007 — Very little can be said about Mótley Crüe that hasn’t been spoken a million times before. As one of the most important and influential bands in the history of rock, the Crüe has blazed a trail of smash hits, performed everywhere with electricity, and developed a tremendous and devoted fan base worldwide.
The upcoming double-CD “Carnival Of Sins’ features 23 tracks spanning the Crüe’s entire career. All of the band’s hits are performed, including “Too Young To Fall In Love,” “Home Sweet Home,” “Shout At The Devil,” “Dr. Feelgood,” and many more. The performance was recorded April 27, 2005 at the Van Andel Arena in in Grand Rapids, MI and is a companion to the live DVD of the same name.
The tour, co-promoted by VH1 and VH1 Classic, drew record crowds around the world, with the group eventually playing before an estimated 1 million in the U.S. Mótley Crüe had offers from more than 100 cities for their summer run, many of them conducting “Bring the Crüe” campaigns through local radio stations and media promotions that resulted in petitions being signed and a series of 55 additional dates added in the U.S. through the summer and fall.
Entertainment Weekly called the Crüe tour the “Feelgood reunion of the year.” MTV.com raved: “Big, loud and dirty… Mótley-and their fans-wouldn’t have it any other way.” The Toronto Star said the reunited Crüe show was “the very embodiment of cool.” The Philadelphia Inquirer simply gave it “four devil horns.” Associated Press said proclaimed: “They snatched the crown back… and wore it proudly for two-and-a-half hours of power chords, profanity and wardrobe malfunctions.” The Toronto Globe and Mail opined: “They came, they saw and they conquered.”
