Motley Crue’s “Colossal” Announcement May Be Just As Much Of A Letdown As We Thought

It would seem that next month’s big Motley Crue announcement, which was teased in this space earlier this week, may in fact involve touring, with the band taking the ball that’s been dropped by the flailing Ozzfest and launching the first annual Cruefest, an innovatively named tour that will have Nikki, Vince, Tommy, and Mick as headliners. Whether or not there will also be announcements involving a long-rumored deal between the band and concert promoter Live Nation is unclear, but I really hope that something else will be announced at this press conference, because the lineup of supporting acts looks pretty grim:

OK, OK, so it’s not as bad as having Static-X headline, and one of the bands does have a song that recently went top 10 on the Hot 100, which should surely sell at least a few extra tickets. But really… Papa Roach? I’d make a “Last Resort” joke, but I’m worried that not enough people will get it. And that was their hit.
