MÖTLEY CRÜE recently announced their upcoming World Tour schedule, which will see the band touring overseas in 2023, before carrying out the 2nd run of North America dates in 2024.
This effectively brings to an end the much-anticipated original lineup reunion of the founding members of the Crue playing all around the world, as bassist Nikki Sixx said they originally planned to complete.
Sadly, the Crue, after two postponements due to COVID-19, only played 2 countries out of 195 as the intact founding lineup.
That being said, it was easy to see from the outside looking in that the band was in serious trouble, limping out of the ‘rock critic-annihilated’ 36 Stadium Tour dates that were plagued by Neil’s crappy singing, and drummer Tommy Lee’s endless stupid onstage antics, which included him getting caught fake playing the drums, believe it or not.
After recently replacing founding guitarist Mick Mars with John 5, rumors began to circulate that Nikki Sixx was not done with his reorganization of the group, for it has now been revealed Sixx’s long held plan to shake up the Crue’s lineup by firing Vince Neil right before the start of 2023, making way for his replacement Scott Stapp, former singer of CREED.
It has been Sixx’s plan all along to deceive Crue fans long enough to sell out all of the tickets before pulling the rug out from underneath them, just as he did when he did not announce that Tommy Lee was injured before the Stadium Tour kicked off, which ended up with Lee getting replaced by another drummer for the first dozen shows or more.
Wait… Mick Mars suffers from a brutally rare spine disease, yet the 71-year-old played all the shows without a hitch, but Tommy Lee gets a little ‘boo boo’ from catching a purported beatdown at the hands of Neil during the band’s last rehearsal and he can’t perform more than three songs at one show?
Does that make any sense to anyone?
What is really going on with the Crue? Is it indeed the love/hate drama going on between Lee and Neil that has essentially destroyed the once great glam metal band?
Word going around now is that Mars quit the Crue once Sixx and Lee revealed their secret plan to oust Neil, and this is why Mick walked away from the band. It had NOTHING to do with his health. Although, Sixx used that as a way to gain sympathy from the Crue’s fanbase, who he has basically taken a large shit on by not being truthful all along.
“There is a lot more going on behind the scenes than anyone will admit, says TMD’s owner, legendary rock journalist Randy “Rocket” Cody. “Nikki knows he has to keep selling the fans on the idea that Neil is in the band still, when in fact, he is already replaced by Stapp, and that is why Sixx released a silly photoshopped band picture with Neil. He is desperately doing all he can to convince us that Stapp is not in the band, yet insiders already know Stapp is the new singer of MÖTLEY CRÜE.”
