Interesting times ahead of the Motley Crue reunion tour announcement.
It was rumored that there will be a fourth band who will open for Motley Crue, Def Leppard and Poison.
Now Michael Sweet says that STRYPER is “the most logical choice” to open the rumored MÖTLEY CRÜE tour.
Sweet took to his social media to argue that STRYPER should be added to CRÜE‘s upcoming trek, explaining that his openly Christian band’s addition to the package “would work perfectly.”
He wrote: “4 reasons @Stryper is the most logical choice to be the 1st of 4 on the MÖTLEY CRÜE tour:
“1. Because MÖTLEY CRÜE has never done things ‘by the book’. They’ve always surprised people, and adding STRYPER to the tour would definitely raise some eyebrows.
“2. Musically it works. It just does. I look at our audiences every night and see MÖTLEY CRÜE and DEF LEPPARD & POISON T-shirts. Whether we all want to admit it or not, we have the same fan bases for the most part. Albeit their fan base is much larger than ours, but musically I think it would work perfectly. STRYPER is at the top of our game musically right now. And I think the entire tour will be performing at its best.
“3. The encore could be an epic mash-up of ‘Shout At The Devil’ and ‘To Hell With The Devil’
“4. More than ever in the history of music we need someone to make a bold statement that says “No matter how different we may seem, as human beings we’re really all the same.” This is MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s chance to unite a very divided world right now. For them to say ‘Yeah, we may (or may not) believe the same thing as STRYPER, but we’re all human beings and we should all get along with one another, no matter what we believe’
Almost six years after signing a “cessation of touring” agreement, the MÖTLEY CRÜE contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together.
The band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true MÖTLEY CRÜE fashion, by literally blowing it up.
As reported last week, Motley Crue is rumored to have been offered a $150 Million reunion tour.
According to Rolling Stone, MÖTLEY CRÜE will hit the road next year for a U.S. tour with fellow hard rock acts POISON and DEF LEPPARD.
Sources have confirmed to the magazine that the three acts will perform at stadiums around the country.
The upcoming trek means that the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE have collectively agreed to rip up the “cessation of touring” contract that they signed in 2014 preventing any of them from performing under the CRÜE name in the future.
