Following the huge success of their 2005 "Carnival of Sins" tour, which included more than 100 arena dates in the U.S. alone, legendary rock icons Motley Crue
announced the next leg of their North American "Carnival of Sins" tour, which will get underway in Columbus, GA, on February 10, 2006. In addition, the group will play a special performance at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit on New Year's Eve, Jan. 31.
"Carnival of Sins," one of Pollstar's Top Five-grossing tours of the year, drew record crowds around the world, with the group eventually playing before an estimated 1 million fans in the U.S. The reunited band also celebrated the Top 10 debut of their platinum-certified Red, White and Crue
album and the recent release of a new version of "Home Sweet Home," featuring Linkin Park
vocalist Chester Bennington
, a gospel choir and string section, with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina through the American Red Cross and Mercycorps. The group also recently opened a pair of dates for the Rolling Stones
in Seattle and Portland, and are about to tour Australia, Japan and Southeast Asia.
The band's DVD of the tour, Carnival of Sins Live, on Clear Channel Entertainment Home Video, was released earlier this month, debuting at #2 on the Billboard Music Video chart to critical acclaim.
