Mötley Crüe kick off American tour in Dallas
Mötley Crüe launch their new North American tour tonight in Dallas some 30 years after coming together.
The band, who are known for their bad behaviour and loud heavy metal rock music, will perform at over 45 venues across America this summer.
Fans can expect a real blast from the past as accompanying them on the tour will be glam-rockers the New York Dolls and pop-metal rockers Poison.
Mick Mars, 60, Motley Crüe's electric guitar player, told Rolling Stone magazine that it is going to be a massive tour, bigger than anything they have done in a long time.
He said: "We've got much more pyro going on than Rammstein. The pyro is over the top, the lighting is awesome, and the stage is bigger than it's been in quite a while. I'm very thrilled and excited."
The band will be playing from a set list exclusively chosen from an online survey of fans, songs that they've not performed live for nearly 20 years.
Tommy Lee, the band's drum player, was married to TV star Heather Locklear and Baywatch star Pamela Anderson.
