Motley Are Making A Big, Top Secret Announcement Today

Recently, Motley Crue started sending out emails and text messages promising a big announcement today. The Crue Fest II announcement is March 16 - so I guess count that out. It doesn't make sense to announce tour dates without a lineup, but I suppose it could happen. Some are speculating that Motley will release the video for "White Trash Circus" today. I'm not sure that constitutes a giant announcement, but we'll see. If you're not a member of the S.I.N. fan club, here are the details (and yes, I fixed the grammar errors):

Hey Crüe fans!

The Saints Of Los Angeles 2009 Tour is off with a bang. Still, something BIG is looming on the horizon.

You'll have to wait until Wednesday to find out. Be sure to keep an eye on your Inbox, and on, all day Wednesday for some news from the Crüe.

In the mean time, if you have received a pre-sale code and purchased your ticket limit for either Crüe Fest 2008 Tour and/or SOLA 2009 Tour, we want to remind you that in order to participate in any future S.I.N. pre-sales, you'll need to renew your membership. Without giving too much away... Now might be a good time for that.

Remember, keep an eye out for a special announcement Wednesday.

Now, here's my problem with this email: it's asking S.I.N. club members to renew - again. Most people already did that to get pre-sale codes for this winter tour. I'm not dropping another 40 bucks on the fan club and I'm pretty sure I've met my ticket limit. Oh well I guess. Motley Crue might have 100 million dollars, but I sure don't!

As you well know, I'll post the big announcement here...when it's released.

I am kinda shocked the Crue would do a cash grab like this, hey guys times are tough and money is tight, well for most of your fans anyway.

Don't get me wrong I love the Crue but don't like fan club BS

I am so sick of this join our fan club, buy our premium packages crap! No one has any money now and for these bands, Live Nation, and Ticketmaster to be raping people. It is atrocious. It is impossible for someone that is not privileged to afford to get close seats to these shows. Here is a good interview question. Who comes first the fans or the money? Now I am sure that someone fancy pants PR person (no offense Allyson) at Live Nation and/or Ticketmaster tries to spin this as a FAIR price, but that is surely not the case. Someone’s pockets are getting lined with cash and it is not ours.

Guess what.....It IS CRUEFEST TOUR DATES....Hey, let's do this once again and F Over our Fans....Give them NO TIME to figure out how to pay for their tickets (yes, fanclub tickets go on sale at 10:00am this morning); don't tell them who's on the bill; nor do they give their fans time to figure out which cities their friends will be going to attend either. OH, and one more thing....if you bought your alloted tickets on either CrueFest last year or the SOLA tour, your SOL b/c you have to renew your SIN Fan Club Membership. F THE CRUE! I'm tired of them taking advantage of their fans.

I believe the big announcement is the tour dates. Blabbermouth had them posted this morning. It makes sense that this would be the big announcement. Don't know who is touring with them yet, however.

And to charge your fans AGAIN for presale? That's insane and aggravating. Don't know what their PR people are thinking, but they need a new group.

Hey Allyson,
Motley Crue already announced Crue Fest 2;

Taking a page right from the Bible of Kiss...the fan's will pay MORE for everything we do. These "fan club" VIP's is nothing more than legal SCALPING. Wow, you get a t-shirt and some other crap, but you're still paying $$$ more AND STILL paying all the TicketBastard charges. Not to mention the fact that these "special" pre-sale tickets are no better than if you bought them the day tickets go on sale to the public. As a matter of fact you will find only a FEW people who got great seats the day of pre-sale compared to the SATISFIED fans that got theirs the day the rest of the public purchased them.
Personally, I have now found it better to wait the DAY OF THE SHOW to get my tickets. I got FRONT ROW for Van Halen, AC/DC, Guns N Roses, George Michael, and most recently Britney Spears (for my kids). If a show sells out, "oh well"...I still have found tickets the same day without much sweat. Between Ebay, TicketsNow (WHICH by the way is SCALPING courtesy of TICKETMASTER) and a slew of others, its a joke. With the economy the way it is today, let THOSE idiots buying all the tickets with the only goal of PROFITING, KEEP EM. You'll get a great deal if you just WAIT. Try it with a show you "kinda" want to see (this way if ya don't get what I have suggested you won't be disappointed TOO bad LOL). I'm telling you 7 HOURS BEFORE the show (usually after 12 noon) you're gonna score some great seats.

Those are the dates for Crue Fest, not the bands. The bands are announced March 16.

Well, here's an update: my pre-sale codes are all used up. I didn't renew my SIN membership. I just have to say no somewhere. We're all going broke here.

Five Finger Death Punch
Machine Head

Jaybird....are you sure thatisnt apost from last year's Mayhem Festival You looked at and not Crue Fest? most of those bands are great by the way....I would bet Godsmack will be on this year, and to be honest they would kill the Crue live...

It's on the ticketmaster page to purchase tickets for the Cruefest 2 show but I guess it could be wrong? It's under a tab called "please note..." and now that I look at other cities they don't have it so maybe it is bogus info?
February 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJaybird
Yeah, they already announced that!
