Motley Crue has reunited and fans are super stoked.
With the official confirmation out, fans are waiting for ticket details.
This has lead to a massive discussion on social media on what made CRUE come out of retirement.
This was answered by their manager Allen Kovac.
A renewed interest in the band thanks to the success of the Netflix biopic “The Dirt”, which was seen by “tens of millions of people,” with streaming of the band’s music increasing more than 350 percent, and the majority of its fanbase shifting from the 45- to 58-year-old demographic to 18 to 45.
“The most relevant statement is that global film, with a global internet and global streaming, is the future.”
“When I go to Amazon, I can see a MÖTLEY CRÜE book, I can see a MÖTLEY CRÜE documentary, I can see a MÖTLEY CRÜE live show, I can see the fact that they got a film, they got CDs out and they got streaming and they’re selling merchandise. So to me, managers and artists should move into 2020 and out of 1999, and so should record companies. You can’t make music in quarters. You can’t develop an artist in a quarter. It takes a couple of years, sometimes a lot more.”
Kovac also addressed criticism of CRÜE singer Vince Neil for his supposed diminished singing ability and weight gain and the health status of guitarist Mick Mars, who has been dealing with a chronic form of arthritis that led him to undergo a hip replacement.
“Some of them are working with a trainer, some of them are working with a nutritionist to make themselves the best they can be,” Kovac told Fox Business.
“The greatest insecurity for an artist is: Is anyone going to care about my music? Is anyone going to buy a ticket? We were in November when the discussions were happening, and these guys were already into regimens of how they get ready for a tour.”
Speaking specifically about Neil, Kovac said:
“Let’s see what Vince sings like and looks like when the tour goes out.”
