"Like a demons dream, lights burning, love's not black and white"
Mötley Crüe - I Will Survive - 1983

Tour Books have long been a favourite with rock'n'roll memorabilia collectors and traders. The high quality photos within seem to really capture the band at that period in time, and therefore in time, assist with ones recollection of such great concert memories.

Here's a comprehensive look at all of the Mötley Crüe tour books that have been available at their shows. Details include a picture of the cover, along with the year of release, title, number of pages, dimensions and content sections. The introductions from inside each tour book have also been included for you. So enjoy the memories... and happy hunting!


Shout At The Devil - Tour Book coverTitle: Mötley Crüe - World Tour
Year of Release:
1984

Pages (inc. covers): 24
Dimensions (HxW): 353x257mm

Contents: Band Members Dossier, Group Pictures, Back Catalogue, Tour Credits, Merchandise Ad & Order Form.

Intro Text: With the ongoing success of Shout At The Devil, 1984 has been a great year for Mötley Crüe and wherever, and whenever, you happen to be reading this, we’d like to thank you for your support.
Since our story so far has been well documented in the music press, rather than indulge in any kind of long-assed biography, we’ve decided to pack out this tour book with as many hot live pix as possible, as well as including some off-the-wall factfiles. We’re sure that true Crüe fans will get off on these far more than the typical bullshit ramblings that tend to fill the pages of most tour programmes.
For the uninitiated, Mötley Crüe was officially formed on January 17th, 1981 in Los Angeles; we subsequently built up a strong local following and then put out our independent debut Too Fast For Love LP, which later led to a worldwide deal with Elektra; Shout At The Devil came out late last year and we’ve since been busting our balls on the road.
Anyway, stay bad and keep sinning!

Theatre Of Pain - Tour Book coverTitle: Mötley Crüe - Welcome To The Theatre of Pain

1985

Pages (inc. covers): 28
Dimensions (HxW): 345x244mm

Contents: Band Members Dossier, Group Pictures, Back Catalogue, Quotes, Trivia Quiz, Tour Credits, Merchandise Ad & Order Form.

Intro Text: Wherever, and whenever, you happen to be reading this, we’d like to thank you, the fans, for your incredible support. Since the Mötley Crüe story thus far has been well documented in the music press, rather than indulge in any kind of long-assed biography, we’ve decided to pack out this tour book with as many hot live pix as possible, as well as including some off-the-wall factfiles. We’re sure that true Crüe fans will get off on these far more than the typical bullshit ramblings that tend to fill the pages of most tour books. For the uninitiated, Mötley Crüe was officially formed on January 17th, 1981 in Los Angeles; we subsequently built up a strong local following and then put out our independent debut Lp, TOO FAST FOR LOVE, which later led to a worldwide deal with Elektra; SHOUT AT THE DEVIL came out in late ‘83 and we subsequently spent the next year busting our balls on the road. Now, we’re back with our third album, THEATRE OF PAIN, and it’s accompanied by what is unquestionably one of the most spectacular, energized stage shows ever presented. We look forward to seeing you on our marathon world tour. In the meantime, stay bad and keep sinning!
-Nikki-Vince-Tommy-Mick-

Note: A Japanese version was also produced containing a mixture of photos of the band as well as live shots from the Shout At The Devil days, complete with all the text in Japanese.
There are also some Mötley pages in the US Festival book as well.

Girls Girls Gilrs - Tour Book coverTitle: Mötley Crüe – Girls Girls Girls World Tour 87/88
Year of Release:
1987

Pages (inc. covers): 24
Dimensions (HxW): 305x305mm

Contents: Band Members Bio, Group Pictures, Merchandise Insert Flyer, History, Tour Credits, Back Catalogue.

Intro Text: What’s most important to a rock & roll band? To be voted No. 1 favorite metal band for three years by the readers’ poll of Hit Parader? Or have a new album enter the Billboard chart at No. 5? And shipped platinum to boot?
Any run of the mill band would be happy for half that, and then they’d sit on their asses and slide. Wouldn’t you? Not Mötley. Because Mötley kicks ass. Because Vince, Tommy, Mick and Nikki need to kick ass. And it’s because they won’t accept anything less than the best for themselves and their fans. At heart they’re real grinders. They have to be, because they’re competing with the best. They’re in competition with themselves.
So the new show and album are the baddest, toughest Mötley yet, not some sound-alike, look-alike retread. Once you’ve heard the album and seen the show you’ll know: Mötley came, Mötley saw, and Mötley thrashed. Nikki puts it mildly when he says, "As musicians, we’re not even the same rock & roll band anymore. When you hear the record and see the show you’ll be able to hear that we are a seasoned rock & roll band."
And Crüe never forgets a friend – Even though Mick, Tommy, Vince and Nikki are straight ahead about their music, they are just as serious about the Crüe Credo. This show and album are for all the headbangers who live on the edge and don’t compromise with anyone or anything, living for themselves and their dreams.

Intro Text: Good evening, my little pretties. Welcome to our… how shall I say it?.. THEATRE OF PAIN!
It’s been a long, long time since we last met… or do you even remember? Perhaps your memories have faded to dust. Let me awaken you, or enlighten you, whichever it may be.
Nine long years ago, we were all too fast for love… standing together to shout at the Devil… in this theatre of pain…. with millions of girls, girls, girls
Well, that’s all gone now… BE DEAD!
Now I will introduce you to our most evil, wicked and powerful opus to date… Dr. Feelgood!
