MÖTLEY CRÜE unveiled today the details of their 2013 Canadian tour, which marks the most expansive run of Canada in the band's history. The tour will commence this spring with a total of 18 show dates spanning from Vancouver to Quebec. The tour kicks off on April 20 at Penticton's South Okanagan Events Centre, and runs through May 14 when the band completes the tour in the nation's capital at Scotiabank Place; this will be the only time the band will perform in Canada through 2013. MÖTLEY CRÜE will be joined by special guests Big Wreck.
Hailing from Los Angeles, the quartet - Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee - has commandeered the rock pantheon for more than 30 years.
In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, three Grammy nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance and countless sold out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans.
The first rock band in history to have completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, MÖTLEY CRÜE is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Lee's 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song Sex released in the of summer 2012), but remain on the forefront of entertainment via cutting edge social media interaction.
MÖTLEY CRÜE has lured Canadian rockers Big Wreck to join them on the massive tour across their home and native land. Big Wreck front man, songwriter and producer Ian Thornley's 'well-schooled Zeppelin inspired rock' secured the Rock Album of the Year Juno nomination for Big Wreck's current album Albatross. The five-piece guitar-laden band is sure to bring their sing-a-long radio hits such as The Oaf, Blown Wide Open, That Song and Ladylike as well the most played rock single of the year - their smash Albatross as a suitable primer for the 'Crue.
