Dates Announced For The Motley Crue/Poison Tour, Let The Drama Begin!

Posted by on March 2, 2011

Tour dates for Motley Crue and Poison’s upcoming tour have been officially announced. The two 80’s glam metal giants will be touring throughout the entire Summer with The New York Dolls. But don’t be so quick to call it a “co-headlining” tour. As our buds at MetalSucks point out, Motley Crue might not be as enthusiastic about the tour as their tour mates. In a Facebook posting shortly posted following the tour’s announcement, Motley Crue had the following to say:

“CNN shot their load early and let it leak. We’re confirming that Motley Crue is headlining this Summer with support from Poison & special guest New York Dolls. Dates tomorrow on Sixx Sense and SixxSense.com starting 7pm local time.”

Hmm. Interesting, especially since Bret Michaels made it sound on CNN that the two were going out as co-headliners. We knew there’d most likely be drama surrounding this tour, but things may get heated even before the tour kicks off. It also doesn’t necessarily help matters that Crue’s Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee seemed less than thrilled to be touring with Poison in a video (also featuring The New York Doll’s David Johansen) posted on SixxSense.com announcing the tour.

Is Motley Crue indeed headlining? Or is Nikki Sixx so embarrassed that he’s doing exactly what swore he’d never do? Granted, when the Poison frontman revealed that the tour was being planned back in November, both Vince Neil and Tommy Lee shot down the report and claimed it wasn’t true. So maybe Michaels is simply getting over excited about his new Summer plans? Then again, that would mean that we’d have to take Sixx, Vince Neil, and Tommy Lee’s word and believe it as truth. You decide who to believe.
