The parting of the heavens... the blue moon rising... the second coming... call it what you will. Mötley Crüe touring the homeland of Chronological Crue - I'd like to see that! Well, dreams DO come true... and good things DO come to those who wait and now my time has come. For years, I've enjoyed reading about all your Crüe experiences and reviews. Now it's my turn... and I want to share it all with you. I'll give it to you straight... from the heart, so you can feel a part of Mötley Crüe's 'New Tattoo Tour'  Australia 2000 as well. Come take a ride on the Mileside!

Chapter 11 - Brisbane Adjustment - 11 October 2000.

I've been half expecting this day to arrive for a while. The day where the Australian tour dates are altered. Some of you will be pleased by this adjustment, while others will be annoyed... but I guess it is fair to say that this is more like the dates we were probably expecting... the dates that seemed most logical and normal for international rock artists playing our shores. 

The email came in from Mötley's touring department in Hollywood yesterday:

"We have revised the Australian itinerary as follows:
11/22 Off 
11/23 Brisbane,  Entertainment Centre
11/24 Off 
11/25 Melbourne, Melbourne Park
11/26 Sydney, Entertainment Centre

Note that Canberra, Wollongong and Newcastle are no longer, Brisbane added."

I then contacted the promoters to obtain an official statement that details ticket policies (because I knew that would be your first concern of course!) I just got this release through this afternoon. Here it is for you, word for word:

“Mötley Crüe adds Brisbane Show – Rose Tattoo named as support”

Last week Mötley Crüe announced that Hole Drummer Samantha Maloney would continue handling drumming responsibilities for the Crüe on their November "New Tattoo" Japanese/Australian Tour, as regular drummer Randy Castillo takes a hiatus due to health reasons.

Due to the change in the line up the Australian tour time period has been changed.  The touring schedule is November:

Brisbane Entertainment Centre - NEW SHOW - Thursday 23
ON SALE FRIDAY 20 OCTOBER

Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Park - Saturday 25

Sydney Entertainment Centre - DATE CHANGE - Sunday 26

The band is really looking forward to the Australian tour, “We can not wait to get down under, we wish we could stay for 2 weeks, but unfortunately other commitments just don’t allow” Nikki Sixx

Rose Tattoo to support Australian Tour

Rose Tattoo has confirmed that they will support Mötley Crüe on their “New Tattoo Tour” of Australia. Peter Wells, from Rose Tattoo said, “The band is really excited to support the Crüe they are a great band and these shows will certainly rock!”.

All ticket holders for the cancelled shows, AIS Arena Canberra, Wollongong Entertainment Centre and Newcastle Entertainment are asked to go to their ticketing outlet to transfer their tickets to either Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane Shows, (or to obtain a refund). 

All tickets purchased for Tuesday 28 November Sydney Entertainment Centre show will work for the changed date show of Sunday 26 November.


Australian street signSo there you are! Many of you will now be needing to re-schedule flights, work out how to get to different cities, and even re-organise time off from work, babysitters, etc. That can be frustrating and a hassle, but Mötley are worth it of course! 

I guess some of you will be sighing with more relief too, knowing that this adjustment has come, but the tour is not being cancelled 100%. On with the show!

I'm glad those that put their hand up to help out as a Street Team Member are receiving their materials, and starting to make them visible. It seems those on the Tour Team are getting Tour Posters, Temporary Crüe Tattoos, and a Hell On High Heels single. Let's get these posters in the most visible places as possible. Ask café owners if you can put one in the window, get prominent positioning for the posters on the walls in your local record stores, take some to pubs and clubs that play live music, etc. And don't forget to save one for yourself as a souvenir of your hard work! Bear in mind the street team goods from Americoma Records will take longer to arrive, since they need to come from overseas instead.

And speaking of Americoma, I got an email from Nikki Sixx recently, in response to my email where I sent the label everyone's addresses for the Street Team. Nikki said, "THIS IS JUST FANTASTIC NEWS......I WOULD LIKE TO TIE IN OUTLAW INTO IT TOO......." so we will see what happens there!

Partner in crime, Dr. Starr, has approached the promoters letting them know that the band has a policy of letting their fans video tape their shows, and asked what's the situation for the Australian shows? Would there be any problems with entering any of the venues with a video camera? The response came back, "Unfortunately without written authorisation from the band you will not be able to get the video camera into the auditorium." The Dr. and I are working hard at trying to get such authorisation for you, hopefully making it available as a download on this site for you all to print out.

I still want to get this radio campaign happening. After waiting a couple of weeks to hear back from EMI Records, and amongst all my busyness, I decided to call them yesterday. Best I could do is to leave a voice mail message. I'll try and stay on that case, so I can add all the request line details for you soon. Until then...

Rock on
Paul Miles*
