The Crue is Back, Announce Motley Reunion 

(antiMUSIC) Sales of spandex and lipstick soared this week when it was made official-- Motley Crue is back. The glam-pop-metal boys have reunited for a 2005 tour and another greatest hits package. 

Rumors have circulated for months that the Motley ones would reunite with the original line-up; Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (Guitar), Nikki Sixx (Bass), and Tommy Lee (drums). Although there have been strong denials in the Motley camp, the inevitable has happened. 

To go along with the announcement, the band have released a new single and video for the track "If I Die Tomorrow", which is set to be included on the new anthology album "Red, White & Crue". 

VH1 and VH1 Classic will be sponsoring the reunion tour (cleverly named "Mötley Crüe: Red White & Crüe Tour 2005…Better Live Than Dead.")  At press time the tour is set to kick off on February 17th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  According to the Crue camp, the first leg of the tour will hit arenas, and the second leg in August and September will attack amphitheaters. In May the tour will hit Latin America and in June the Crue will embark on a European run.   The first batch of tickets for the 1st leg will go on sale this weekend.
