The Cleveland Plain-Dealer said simply: “Spread the word: Mötley Crüe is back!”

That’s right baby and they are bringing all the hits, fire breathing midgets and all the fun, craziness and excess that embodies what we call Motley.

“All that was missing from this show was someone being shot out of a cannon!” raved the Toronto Sun. “Give them time, given the band is returning in the summer.” Tomorrow morning, the bad boys of rock will announce an additional 55 shows on Howard Stern’s nationally syndicated radio show.  The new dates, which follow their tour in Europe and Asia, start on July 26 in Los Angeles, CA and run through October 16 in Sioux City Iowa.  A pre-sale of these dates will begin Wednesday (March 2) on AOL CityGuide, with general tickets on sale March 5.

The band’s tour, co-promoted by VH1 and VH1 Classic, has been drawing record crowds around the world, with the group eventually playing before an estimated 1 million in the U.S.  Mötley Crüe had offers from more than 100 cities for their summer run, many of them conducting “Bring the Crüe” campaigns through local radio stations and media promotions that resulted in petitions being signed and a series of 55 dates added in the U.S. through the summer and fall. A similar promotion in Canada saw the band’s new album, Red White & Crüe, certified platinum, and several concerts north of the border added to the tour.

All I can say is that seeing the Crue this time around is mandatory for any long time fan. It sounds like you’re gonna have to fight to get tickets though.

The reviews from the self-proclaimed “Loudest Show On Earth,” which includes fire-breathing midgets, aerial displays and assorted circus freaks and geeks, have been uniformly enthusiastic.

The Toronto Star enthused: “Suddenly, a reunited Crüe seems like the very embodiment of cool.”

I’m not sure if that statement is true but I’ll be damned if I’m “too cool” to get in the pit and rock out with one of the most legendary rock bands of all time. Be there or be square baby.

Check out the dates in your area and get yourself tickets early!

These new dates, dubbed “Carnival of Sins,” will include some festival-style amphitheater and arena dates with special guests, fellow Island/IDJ recording artists Sum 41, The Exies and some of the hottest new rock bands in various markets, to be announced.
