In today's press conference, Mötley Crüe has revealed that this summer they, along with Buckcherry, Papa Roach, SIXX:AM and Trapt, will head out on the road for “Crüe Fest ‘08.” The tour, produced by Live Nation, kicks off on July 1st and will hit over 40 major North American and Canadian cities by the end of August. Fans that can’t wait for this weekend's online sale can get their tickets early by going to TheRockvine.com.

On-site activities will include a 2nd “Stage” presented by Rock Band where fans attending the show can play the part of “rock star” while playing the game. A special Crüe Fest CD featuring tracks from all of the bands on the tour will be available exclusively at Best Buy beginning June 17th.

Mötley Crüe also announced the upcoming release of "Saints of Los Angeles," their first new studio album recorded with all of the original band members in over a decade, hitting stores on June 17th. The band premiered the brand new single, “Saints Of Los Angeles," at today's press conference in LA. The song includes backing vocals by Josh Todd (Buckcherry), Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), James Michael (SIXX:A.M.) and Chris Brown (Trapt). In an industry first, the song was also made available as a download for the Rock Band video game simultaneously with its single release.

Lyrically, the new album follows the story of the band’s NY Times best-selling memoir, "The Dirt," a no-holds-barred tell-all that features every gritty detail of the band’s exploits as one of the world’s biggest rock bands.

Does everybody think they can put on a musical festival now? C'mon, this is getting ridiculous! There aren't even enough bands to require a second stage! Are there more to be announced? I mean, I'm stoked to see Crue back and all, but JEEZ!
