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 12 - Good to Catch Up - 19 October 2000.

Time for another chapter hey! 10,000 Miles Away... but I can't believe that we are pretty much just 1 Month Away now from such a huge event in our lives... and also that is was 55 days ago that Chapter 1 blasted off! Time. It goes so fast... but think of all that has happened with you since you found out that Mötley were coming... lots - I bet. With another weekend just about here, before you know it - show time... or flight time, would have arrived.

RageA good way to pass the time this weekend is with all your Crüe mates this Friday night (tomorrow). It's always good to catch up with friends. Invite them over, get some chips and dips, they bring their own vices, and watch 'Rage' on Channel 2 from midnight. You'll no doubt all cheer loudly when your speakers crank with the cartoon clip for Mötley's 'Hell On High Heels' for the very first time on Australian television. Set those VCRs so you can relive it the next morning... with clear vision!

Once your hangover is gone, you may like to get down to your local newsagent to grab a copy of the current Australian Guitar Magazine (with Slash on the cover) to check out the interview with Nikki Sixx. Don't you love seeing Mötley in Australian magazines? I do. That's one thing I miss with Tommy out of the band now... is going to the newsagent on a Monday morning and checking the women's gossip mags for cool T-Bone articles.... even if half of them were crap, at least we got lots of cool Mötley pics.

Some some you have expressed concern about any further changes to Mötley's dates. The tour promoters said this to me as part of an email this week, "There are going to be no more cancelled shows, we are doing Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne." So please, it would be appreciated if you could really keep spreading the positive word about the tour as much as possible. Dig deep and go that bit extra for Mötley.

Dr. Starr sent this tour ad to me from that banana state of his. You Sam fans will find it cool to see her name there! Oh,... no further word from management or promoters regarding video taping of the shows yet. Stay tuned for more info when it comes to hand.

Thanks for your emails of thanks, after receiving street team materials. I'm not sure what was sent to every single person, but I know people are receiving combinations of Mötley CD Singles, Temporary Tattoos and Tour Posters. Some have all, some have some. I know I'm still waiting on posters to arrive, so I'll suss that out with them to see what's up.

Those of you on the Australian Americoma Street Team shouldn't rush to your letter box each day for flyers to arrive for distribution. Their label manager said to me recently, "We are electronically loading on web site, should be up next week so everyone can download the flyer." That's cool. It's Sixx's label and he is into technology and empowering people, rather than traditional methods. Embrace it, grab a ream of paper and copy away.

The Hard Rock Café got in touch with me regarding my comments in Chapter 8. They wanted to follow up with the Melbourne promoter on Crüe promotion opportunities. So those two parties have now been hooked up and hopefully value can be seen in some sort of function there, that us fans can enjoy in some way too. 

Well that's all for this chapter. I'm going to go and listen to some Crüe now. Maybe I'll put Generation Swine on... I'm in a tech mood at the moment and I feel like hearing some of those cool new textures on that album. I'm going to skip track one though, since the kids are home. Perhaps they think 'Afraid' is the first song on the CD???   :-) 
See you in your head, next time we catch up.

Rock on
Paul Miles*
