Mötley Crüe announced today they will perform the entire album, Dr. Feelgood, from beginning to end at every performance on their Summer festival tour, Crüe Fest 2. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Dr. Feelgood, which became the Crüe’s first #1 album on the Billboard charts. To celebrate the anniversary, the band plans to theme the second edition of their festival tour with imagery inspired by Dr. Feelgood. Mötley Crüe will reveal details of the tour at a major press conference from the Fuse TV studios on March 16th in New York City and Fuse will air press conference highlights at 9pm ET/PT that evening.

Pre-sale tickets for Crüe Fest 2 are available to the public today.


Eleven Seven Music/Mötley Records will re-release Dr. Feelgood later this spring. Originally released on September 1, 1989, Dr. Feelgood reached #1 on the Billboard Charts and went on to sell more than 7 million copies worldwide, producing 5 Billboard Hot 100 hits. The title track which reached #7 on the Hot 100 and earned the band their first two Grammy nominations (Best Hard Rock Performance: “Dr Feelgood” in 1989 and “Kickstart My Heart” in 1990).

Notes Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, "On this summer's Crue Fest we really wanted to give the fans something they've never seen before. And since its the 20th Anniversary of the release of Dr. Feelgood, we figured what better way to celebrate than to play it live TOP TO BOTTOM every night."

Now that's what I call changing up the setlist! Dr. Feelgood is a great album and performing it from start to finish is a great idea from the Crue!

I would love to see this, but it does feel a *little* passe to me. Everyone has been doing it. Beyond that, I've thought their setlist is heavy on Dr Feelgood songs anyhow. I'd rather here more of SATD.

I wonder if this means that we wont hear songs from the other albums. If there set will only have Dr. Feelgood tunes, then Cruefest seems less interesting to me. I like Dr. Feelgood, but do I want to hear the whole album performed live in 2009. No, not really.
Damn - looks like im gonna enjoy the crue in the UK this year. havent heard them play same ole situation live.
Excellent

Doing it a few times, sure. But every night? They're going to regret that after a week :P

Playing it in Rock Band is fun. People make fun of me cause I know all the words to all the songs, but I got my bf to learn the album as a result. Score!

I saw TMBG play 'Flood' in its entirety once (I missed the night they did 'Apollo 18. Damn, I so shoulda gone to that show), and that was cool. They came out as The Saphire Bullets :)

Great another reason to skip Crue fest, what about playing the entire Shout album I think people would dig that way more. Im seeing the Crue in 2 weeks and that will ne enough for me Im sick of them taking out modern bands I could give a crap about. Stop trying to act relavent in todays music.Tour with 80's bands and enjoy your roots, oh yeah S.O.L.A. sucks

sighhh...
Motley seem obsessed with going back to their hey-day and much as I love Dr.Feelgood, we've all heard them all so much!
I wish they would play some of their more obscure tracks, and things from albums OTHER than Dr.Feelgood. Its seems thats all they play anyways. I mean of course you want some tracks from Dr.Feelgood, but they've basically changed about 5 songs on the lineup, because dr.feelgoods all they play.

Still I would go and see them, and I wish they'd come to Britain. Apparently theres 'snow on the roof' ;)

I love the idea and expect it will seriously kick ass! The whole cruefest being designed around that concept should be amazing. I can't wait!! I will admit they do confuse at times. Like always taking out newer bands that most of us do not care about or at times have not even heard of, most likely trying to be as one poster put it "relevant" but then playing an album from 20 years ago in it's entirety is very nostalgic. Personally, I prefer nostalgic and do think they should take out 80's brethren on tours. Just my personal preference. I love their music regardless.

maybe it it was shout at the devil but otherwise nah. and thanks fitz, someone finally agrees with me about sola.

Just wanted to say that SOLA Rocks and is def. in the top 3 cds of 2008.
Motley's amazing comeback album

im late to comment haha, but if you say sola was a bad album, then you need to get slapped in the fucking face, now sola isnt their best, but it was a damn good album, the lyrics are great, the riffs, vinces voice, i love the solo on the title track, i love the opener LAMF, then goes straight to face down in the dirt, and the lyrics on just another psycho, welcome to the machine, and white trash circus, i wont go on forever but thats a great album. so and dr feelgood we have seen most songs, but we all wanna see rattlesnake shake, she goes down, and id like to see a 30 yr anniversery of SATD, with a mix of old and newer bands supportig
