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 5 - Tour Announcement Exclusive - 5 September 2000.

Well here's the moment you Aussie Crüeheads have been waiting for - the official Press Release from the tour promoter is now able to be released. It's the moment we have been waiting for, for so many years now. Here is the announcement of The New Tattoo Tour, exclusive to Chronological Crue.

For Immediate Release:


Jacobsen Entertainment Group today announced one of the original “hard-drivin”, “fast-living”, “bad-boy” bands of rock Mötley Crüe are on their way to Australia.

With 40 million albums sold, Vince Neil (vocals), Nikki Sixx (bass), Mike Mars (guitar) and new drummer Randy Castillo are currently winning killer reviews in the U.S., where they are on a summer concert tour hitting over 50 amphitheatres.

It will be the band’s first tour of Australia since 1990.

The release of the Crüe’s first studio album in three years, “New Tattoo”, produced by Mike Clink (noted rock producer of Guns’N’Roses “Appetite For Destruction”), coupled with the departure last year of the notorious Tommy Lee (aka Mr Pam Anderson) has reinvigorated the band.

According to Vince Neil, “the New Tattoo tour will be unpredictable and dangerous - just what a rock’n’roll concert should be and what Mötley Crüe always delivered. We are excited to let the fans hear the new songs live as well as the Mötley anthems they have grown to love.”

The U.S. critics agree. “This is a band who knows how to rock live”, says the Los Angeles’ Daily Bulletin. “Indisputably, rock is back”, says the LA Times and “after 20 years they still have the goods to give their audience what it wants,” writes The Salt Lake Tribune.

Mötley Crüe will perform classic hits including “Kickstart My Heart”, “Dr Feelgood” and “Same Ol' Situation” as well as material from their newly released album “New Tattoo” (Virgin Records) - described as having “the explosive riffs, the ballsy melodies and the anthemic choruses that have had the fans singing and grinning for some of the most distinctive, irreverent and kick-ass rock’n’roll ever assigned to vinyl, compact disc or gigabytes”.

Since forming in Los Angeles in 1981, Mötley Crüe’s essential albums “Too Fast For Love”, ”Shout At The Devil”, “Theatre Of Pain” and “Dr Feelgood” have produced four  U.S. Top Ten singles.

So there you have it folks! Mötley Crüe are returning to Australia! Last tour they also played 5 shows, being 2 in Melbourne, 2 in Sydney and 1 in Brisbane. The 5 shows for this tour are a little more spread out this time around, as they cover some smaller regional east coast cities. Wollongong is just 65kms south of Sydney and approximately 1 to 1.5 hrs in a car. 

Newcastle is also less than 2 hours drive from Sydney, north along an excellent highway (you can also travel between the two cities by air or train)  Newcastle is on the eastern seaboard of Australia at the mouth of the Hunter River. Industrialisation increased in the town after iron and steel mills were built in 1915, and today, Newcastle is Australia's sixth most populated city and one of the country's fastest growing. I liken it to Detroit, in that it's somewhat of a blue collar steel town, where the people love to swill their beer and rock! The Newcastle Entertainment Center is a great venue, with a 5,000 seat capacity.

The 12,000 capacity Sydney Entertainment Centre is located in the centre of Haymarket, adjacent to Darling Harbour and only a 10 minute walk to the heart of the central business district. Mötley played 2 shows here back in their first tour of Australia in 1990. Sydney will be buzzing from the Olympic Games and we hope some of the festivities will carry over for Mötley.

Situated on Leverrier Cres, Bruce, the Australian Institute of Sport Arena in the Australian Capital of Canberra is also known to many locals as the Palace. This indoor arena is also home of the Canberra Cannons basketball team.

...and Melbourne, Australia's cultural capital, and the city to be my new home next year. The National Tennis Centre, where the Crüe also played 2 shows ten years ago, is now renamed Melbourne Park. This 16,000 seat arena has an opening roof that weighs 700 tonnes and takes 25 minutes to open or close. It's also home to the Australian Open tennis Grand Slam event, and Australian Rod Laver is the only player in the history of tennis to have won two Grand Slam singles titles.

But backhand's aside, I'm sure Mötley's forthcoming concert will be the biggest smash of the year to be served up on centre court. If nothing else, I'm sure it will leave a permanent mark in the minds of Aussie Crüeheads for life. To me... forget the Olympics... it's the Crüe that I want to see on the podium in 2000. Wow, I can't wait... can you?

Don't forget - tickets go on sale at 9am this Saturday 9th September!!!

Rock on
Paul Miles*
