Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx: Why We Changed Our Minds About Touring With Poison
Mötley Crüe members Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums), along with New York Dolls frontman David Johansen, appeared on the February 28 edition of Sixx's nationally syndicated radio show "Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx" to announce Crüe's summer headlining tour with support from Poison and "special guest" New York Dolls. You can now listen to the audio of their appearance using the Kyte media player below.
Regarding the Crüe's decision to do the tour, Sixx said, "One of the things Mötley Crüe said was that we would never tour with Poison because we were sort of punk / heavy metal / glam, we came out of the very, very early '80s and took what we did very... it was very important to us. And then bands came after us and we wanted to kind of separate from them. And we had never planned on touring with any of the bands from that era. There was no animosity — it was just that we put a very clear line. But when the (New York)Dolls signed on, it made it seem like it was the right time to do that this tour."
