Motley Crue is hitting the road early next year for a follow-up to summer 2008’s inaugural Crue Fest. The 28-city arena trek begins February 2 at Cox Arena in San Diego, CA, and closes March 18 at Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, ME.
The coast-to-coast Saints of Los Angeles Tour includes a February 6-7 run at The Joint in las Vegas, NV, a February 21 gig at Sommet Center in Nashville, TN, a March 6 show at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ, and a March 16 concert at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY.
Two stops are also booked in Canada: March 10 at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, ON, and March 11 at copps Coliseum in Hamilton, ON. Hard rock groups Hinder, Theory of a Deadman and the Last Vegas will provide support throughout the North American trek.
Presales began today (November 14) at 10 a.m. local time and close November 20 at 10 p.m., with public on-sales following on November 21. Tickets for the headlining trek have face values ranging from $25 to $75.
Motley Crue will follow the winter outing with a European tour in June and a late summer return to the States for the second Crue Fest tour event. More than 600,000 fans attended the 41-city Crue Fest 2008, which grossed approximately $16.6 million according to Billboard.
The rockers are supporting their ninth studio album, “Saints of Los Angeles,” which hit stores in June. The album peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and topped Billboard‘s Independent Albums chart. The record is the first to feature the classic Crue lineup of vocalist Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx, and drummer Tommy Lee since 1997’s “Generation Swine.”
