line-up for the first year of the tour which includes Buckcherry, Papa
Roach, breakout rock artist Sixx:A.M., and alternative rock band Trapt.

Says Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue, "We are SO excited not only to headline
our own annual summer festival, but also to be able to share the stage with
the next generation of great rock bands. There's not a lot Motley Crue
hasn't done so to say this summer's festival is going to be about rock 'n
roll excess is an understatement. A night of hit songs by great bands and a
trail of panties coast to coast ... Crue Fest, hell yeah!"

During the press conference, Motley Crue also announced that they will
release "Saints of Los Angeles," their first new studio album recorded with
all of the original band members in over a decade, on June 17th.

Today's event featured the premiere of Motley Crue's brand new single,
"Saints of Los Angeles," which the band played live during a brief but
raucous performance. The song, which also includes backing vocals by Josh
Todd (Buckcherry), Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), James Michael (Sixx:A.M.)
and Chris Brown (Trapt) is the title track of the new album. Lyrically, the
new album follows the story of the band's NY Times best-selling memoir The
Dirt, a no-holds-barred tell-all that features every gritty detail of the
band's exploits as one of the world's biggest rock bands. The first single
and video were serviced today to radio and television and the digital
download was instantly made available for purchase at the iTunes Music
Store. In an industry first, the song was also made available as a download
for the Rock Band video game simultaneously with its single release.

In addition to being televised live on Fuse, the press conference was
broadcast live online and syndicated on numerous websites including
TheRockvine.com. Motley Crue chose to deliver the live stream using
Microsoft Silverlight via iStreamPlanet, Co's iStream Player. The iStream
Player is built on Microsoft Silverlight technology which is a lightweight
cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in that delivers the next generation of
fully immersive media experiences and rich interactive applications for the
Web. Silverlight ensures consumers worldwide have a consistent experience
while watching content in any browser and on any platform.

Official partners for Crue Fest include JVC Mobile Audio, MTV's Rock
Band, Best Buy, Fuse TV, Lotus, and TheRockvine.com. On-site activities
will include a 2nd "Stage" presented by Rock Band where fans attending the
show can play the part of "rock star" while playing the game. A special
Crue Fest CD featuring tracks from all of the bands on the tour will be
available exclusively at Best Buy beginning June 17th. JVC Mobile Audio
premiered a viral video featuring Josh Todd of Buckcherry and Jacoby
Shaddix of Papa Roach having an "experience" in a car surrounded by the
latest JVC audio/visual technology, a cast of hot babes and a ton of soap
bubbles.

Can't say I care about any of the other bands on the bill except Sixx:A.M.

If Nikki doesn't bring them over when Crue do Europe I'm not going to be happy.

EvilCheeseWedge 04-16-2008 03:34 PM

Meh.

Got my tickets for the Saskatoon SK stop. Crue, Papa Roach and Trapt I'm definitely looking forward to.:rocker:
