MÖTLEY CRÜE Singer Says Reunion Tour Could Last Three Years

MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil recently spoke to Steve Morse of the Boston Globe about the group's "Red, White, and Crüe 2005...Better Live Than Dead" reunion tour.

"Many bands today have no sense of entertainment," said Neil. ''And if you're going to pay $70 a ticket, you need to be entertained, rather than going to see a bunch of guys just standing around."

Tickets have been selling briskly, according to the band.

''We've added another 50 shows and [promoters] want us to add another 50 after that," said Neil. ''That would mean we'd end up with 152 shows in the U.S. alone. It's been pretty amazing. A lot of the fans grew up with us, but they're also bringing kids who are 8, 9, and 10 years old. The kids are dressed in MÖTLEY CRÜE shirts and are curious about what this thing is all about."

Tabloid writers have tried to stir up gossip by saying the band members are traveling in separate buses, portraying it as a sign of friction. ''Separate buses are just more comfortable," said Neil. "Nikki [Sixx, bass] has five kids and he needs some space. And Tommy [Lee, drums] needs space when his kids are out with him."

So is there a future for MÖTLEY CRÜE?

"Right now, we're just touring — and this tour could last as long as three years," said Neil. "After it ends, we'll take some time off, then decide if we want to do a new record. That would be great, but if not, we at least had a fun tour."
