More Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett tour dates were announced. The stadium tour will now start in June.
Following the success of Netflix’s biography “The Dirt”, Mötley Crüe decided to return to the stage because younger audiences’ interest in the band had grown. The film brought a 350% increase in the band’s music streams across platforms, and the youngest age group between 18 and 44 now represents 64% of the band’s fanbase.
Crüe is also celebrating the 30th anniversary of the album “Dr. Feelgood” (1989) this year, entitled to a luxurious relaunch.
Mötley Crüe announced the return of their activities almost 4 years after completing their farewell tour in December 2015. The news was announced by the band on their official website after several speculations about their return circulated in the specialized press and Vince Neil even denied the reunion.
In a statement, Mötley Crüe confirmed that they had broken the agreement signed at a public event stating that the band would never meet again. The reason is that, according to the group, a new audience is coming due to the success of Netflix’s “The Dirt” biography.
