Today is the day when we learn the special tour routing for SIXX: AM.
Not so long ago, the band featuring Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba and James Michael decided they would hold a contest of sorts to pick the winning tour stops. SIXX: AM asked fans to vote for their city. As of this writing, I have no idea the routing or how many stops to expect. I also don't know what time today the tour stops will be announced, although I assume that information will come to me via press release. As soon as I know the information, I'll post the update here.
I'm going to guess the band will play no more than nine shows, each in a very intimate setting. I am sure at least two of the stops will be California, another in New York City, one somewhere in Texas and at least one Midwestern gig. Do I think the Midwestern gig will be in Ohio? Absolutely not.
No matter. I'll be attending one of the shows regardless of the location. That's why we have airplanes, credit cards and hotels. I actually quite like planning vacations around concerts. It gives me something to look forward to, and seeing a favorite band in an unfamiliar city seems somewhat exotic.
Many fans have created their own videos set to SIXX: AM songs. Here's a clip set to "Tomorrow."
I would say how I feel about Mr. Sixx, but I'm a married woman and it wouldn't be very fair to my husband.
My contact at 10TH Street Entertainment now says SIXX: AM will issue a press release about the tour sometime this week. Now the online petitions say voting is extended until next week - I guess that means we won't know the routing until March.
