MÖTLEY CRÜE will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, January 25 starting at 11:30 a.m. in front of the Musician's Institute in Hollywood, California. Fans are more than welcome to attend the event and show their support for the band.
MÖTLEY CRÜE were among a number of entertainers in motion pictures, television, radio, live theater, and recording that were selected in June 2005 to receive stars on the Walk of Fame by the Walk of Fame Committee of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. These individuals were chosen from among hundreds of nominations to the committee at a meeting held June 20, 2005 and ratified by the Chamber's Board of Directors.
As previously reported, MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil revealed during an appearance on the "Opie and Anthony" show on XM Satellite Radio on Jan. 6 that CRÜE will be teaming up with AEROSMITH for a co-headlining tour later in the year. In addition, CRÜE will be playing several European dates with THE ROLLING STONES over the summer.
MÖTLEY CRÜE will commence the songwriting/demoing process for their new studio album on May 1. Joining the group for the new album sessions will be producer Bob Rock, who previously worked with CRÜE on their "Dr. Feelgood" and self-titled albums, as well as the three new tracks that appeared on CRÜE's two-CD "greatest hits" collection, "Red, White & Crüe", which came out in February 2005. An early 2007 release is expected, to be followed by extensive touring.
