Motley Crue Reform!

by John Bownas | 07 December 2004


Motley Crue reunites all the original members after more than six years to announce 'Red, White & Crue Tour 2005 ... Better Live Than Dead,'


The raucous rulers of the sex-and- drugs-fueled nightlife on L.A.'s Sunset Strip have returned to their old stomping grounds. All four original members of Motley Crue, the glam-metal gods who've sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and who paved the way for other seminal rock acts, have reunited for the first time in six years, announcing a new world tour.

The new tour resulted not only from strong demand by US audiences, but was largely fueled by the diligent efforts of Mags Revell, a UK promoter with Metropolis Music Group, who launched his own grass-roots campaign in the UK designed to get the band to reunite. Taking the unprecedented steps of placing advertising in UK media and putting a hold on concert venues in the UK for June, 2005, Revell's efforts quickly gained traction with fans all across the world who added fuel to the fire by taking to the internet and spreading the word.
