MÖTLEY CRÜE recently unveiled the details of their 2013 Canadian tour, which marks the most expansive run of Canada in the band’s history. The tour kicked off on April 20th in Penticton, BC on April 20th, with a total of 18 show dates running through to May 14 when the band completes the tour in the nation's capital. This will be the only time the band will perform in Canada through 2013.
Bassist Nikki Sixx has checked in with the following:
"I am really excited and honored to be working with Leica Camera
. I'll be documenting my trip across Canada for now, but this is just the beginning of a long journey as there is a lot of great things being worked on for the near future for me as a photographer. I'll keep you all posted (also finishing up my photography website soon).
I am gonna put the new Leica Monochrom and M240 to the test and will be posting updates at the above Leica Facebook page."
Sixx issued the following pre-tour update: "The band is all rehearsed up and we added a bunch of old school songs to the set. This is the biggest lighting rig we have ever used. We brought in the newest technology and we are really looking forward to opening night. We're feeling strong. Any Canadians on here? Give us a shout out from your city."
