Fuse to Air Motley Crue Press Event Live Tuesday

Borrowing a page from its chief’s old VH-1 Classic book, the Fuse network will air live from Los Angeles a Tuesday press conference at which Motley Crue members are expected to announce a summer tour involving other rock bands, as well.

Fuse put out an advisory saying something would be announced at the 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT event – as did Tommy Lee and company. But a Web site called The Gauntlet previously said the band was going to announce a “Crue Fest” tour also involving the bands Papa Roach, Motley Crue, Sixx A.M., Buckcherry, and Trapt. It said tickets would go on sale for most venues tomorrow, as well.

Fuse president Eric Sherman used this technique to effect in February 2007 when he ran VH-1 Classic: it aired a live press conference from Los Angeles at which The Police announced their reunion tour and performed.

Motley Crue consists of Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx.
