MOTLEY CRUE ANNOUNCE SEVEN US TOUR DATES
FOLLOWING THEIR BIGGEST CANADIAN RUN EVER
ALL TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, MARCH 8TH

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 4, 2013) – Following three previously announced dates, MÖTLEY CRÜE unveil today three additional shows for their first US run of 2013. The CRÜE are currently rounding out eight shows in Australia with Kiss before heading out on their biggest headlining Canadian run ever with special guests, Big Wreck. The seven US dates begin on May 16th in Bangor, ME and will also be routing through Gilford, NH; Uncasville, CT; two shows in Bethlehem, PA; Atlantic City, NJ and one other to be announced. For a complete list of MÖTLEY CRÜE tour dates, please see below.

Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, the quartet—Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee, has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 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 summer 2012), but remain on the forefront of entertainment via cutting edge social media interaction.

The band was featured in the award winning Super Bowl commercial for the KIA Optima in 2012. MÖTLEY CRÜE’s New York Times bestselling memoir, The Dirt is currently being adapted into a major motion picture.

Nikki Sixx to Appear at Dean Markley NAMM Booth!

SANTA CLARA, CA – JANUARY 18, 2013 – Dean Markley USA announces a meet and greet opportunity with legendary international rock icon, Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue and Sixx:A.M. at 5:00PM on January 26th, at booth # 5710 during this year’s National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) show in Anaheim, California.

The collaboration between Dean Markley USA and Nikki Sixx started in late 2011 as the two set out to design a set of signature bass strings able to withstand the demands of the road and the studio while still delivering the tone and attitude that you would expect from a rock icon.  The result became the Nikki Sixx Signature Series Helix bass string.  The signature sets offers the exact string type and gauges he uses on stage and are constructed of stainless steel alloy.   They feature the new Helix patent-pending hyper-elliptical windings and Nikki sums it up best: “Dean Markley puts the bite back in the bass sound.”

Nikki Sixx is a founding member of Mötley Crüe and Sixx:A.M., two-time New York Times bestselling author with The Heroin Diaries and This Is Gonna Hurt, co-founder of rock couture fashion line Royal Underground, philanthropist, photographer and internationally syndicated radio show host of Sixx Sense and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx. Some other of Sixx’s accomplishments include over 80-million in album sales with Mötley Crüe and Sixx:A.M., countless awards and sold out tours across the globe, Mötley Crüe’s sold out residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas – a first for the hard rock genre – the award-winning 2012 Kia Optima Superbowl commercial, photographing a high fashion shoot for The New York Post’s prestigious supplement Alexa, and raising several hundred thousand dollars through his Running Wild in the Night charity for Covenant House California.

PRESS RELEASE: Nikki set to unveil “The Schecter Sixx” at NAMM

SCHECTER GUITAR RESEARCH KICKSTARTS 2013 BY SIGNING MOTLEY CRUE / SIXX A.M. BASSIST NIKKI SIXX TO ITS STELLAR ROSTER OF ARTISTS
Company to Unveil “The Schecter Sixx” Bass at Winter NAMM Conference – Room 210-­‐D

(January 16, 2013, Sun Valley/Hollywood, CA) –2013 is proving to already be a monumental year for Schecter Guitar Research as the company settles into its expanded headquarters in Sun Valley, CA, ramps up for MAJOR new gear announcements and continues to amass a stellar lineup of artists, which includes some of the biggest names in the recording and touring industries. To that note, the company is proud to announce the partnership with a true modern-­‐day rock icon by signing Motley Crue / Sixx A.M. bassist, NY Times bestselling author and radio host Nikki Sixx, adding even more fire power to its roster. Not only has Schecter landed a talented and noted songwriter and player, but also one of the leading voices and minds in fashion, non-­‐fiction, photography and media via his clothing lines, New York Times top 10 selling books and his successful internationally syndicated radio shows Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx.

However, it is his musical pedigree, history and current musical projects that helped the collaboration with Schecter come to fruition. “It was an exciting and creative process to work with Schecter on the new Schecter Sixx Signature Series Bass,” states Sixx, “It was important to all of us to design a bass that would feel right as well as sound amazing in the hands of all players, not just me. Every detail about the new Schecter Sixx comes from all of our collective experiences – whether it’s my 30 years of playing live and recording or Schecter’s unprecedented standards for making quality instruments for players of all genres. Simply said, this bass rocks!” Schecter’s Executive Vice President, Marc LaCorte adds, “I really felt as if we instantly gelled and were looking to accomplish the same goal with this project. Above all, it was so refreshing to see an artist of Nikki’s stature be so involved and genuinely concerned about every detail in the creation of this instrument.”

Nikki Sixx has been known for years as a player stylized by his brashness and Schecter has taken it upon themselves to create this Nikki Sixx signature mode, aptly named the Schecter Sixx. Nikki Sixx will be introducing the Schecter Sixx with an exclusive signing at the winter NAMM Conference in Anaheim, CA on January 26th from 3:00pm-­‐4:00pm PST at the Schecter booth (Room 210-­‐D). It can be maintained that The Schecter Sixx will reflect Nikki’s style, both visually and sonically, while being able to withstand the punishing rigors of the road from opening night to the end of tour closing set. The Schecter Sixx bass will surely make a rumble through the industry and then resonate with players, retailers and consumers alike.
