Post-Summerfest Enter Cruefest

Motley Crue is headlining its own touring festival this summer. They are calling it Crue Fest. Think chicks, buses and Jack Daniels, oh and a bunch of loud rock music. The tour comes to Milwaukee on July 19th, post-Summerfest, when Motley Crue and Friends play the Marcus Amphitheater.

Here is a good one. Motley Crue bassist, Nikki Sixx gave the following in a press conference, "A night of hit songs by great bands and a trail of panties coast to coast. ... Crue Fest, hell yeah!". Wow. Gloria Steinem still has some work to do.

I would suspect they'll play the following songs:

Girls, Girls, Girls
Wild Side
Dr. Feelgood
Kickstart My Heart
Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)
Home Sweet Home
Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)
Without You
Smokin' in the Boys' Room
Shout at the Devil

To each his own I say. Nothing wrong with some old-school rock. The band says they will also release their first studio album together in ten years, Saints of Los Angeles, in June.

Motley Crue tickets are reasonably priced, something the band did intentionally.

Other rockers on the CrueFest tour include Buckcherry, Trapt, Papa Roach and Sixx A.M.
