GNR & Motley Crue

Apparently GNR will be sharing the stage with Motley Crue during the band's Dublin gig on June 9.

Not sure if this is one-time date - or if GNR will be touring with the Crue for more shows.

Your thoughts?

Would you like to see GNR tour with them or do you hope this is a one-time event?

GNR is a much better band than Motley Crue, but it makes since to tour with them. Motley Crue, for not really releasing much music in the past decade, still remains a popular live act and would draw more fans to a GNR gig. As we saw in 2002, GNR did not draw as many fans to the shows as they once did possibly because they have been absent from the music scene for so long. A GNR - Motley Crue tour would be huge, even if it does sound like a segment from "I Love the 80's." But the nostalgia factor of seeing two bands from the same time period touring together would draw a lot of older fans.

Motley Crue are not washed up. they had the #9 grossing tour of 2005. they're about to put out a new album as well. don't lump them in with the Poisons and the Warrants of the world. they were more than just a cut above that. they were highly influential in the '80's and GNR might not have ever gotten a record deal if it wasn't for the Crue's popularity. and remember this, Tom Zutaut, the guy who discovered GNR, was the guy that brought the Crue to Elektra records some 5 or 6 years earlier. they came from the same scene, so if you lump the Crue in with those cheesy copycat bands, then put GNR in there as well. if you were around back then, you should know all this. if your one of the younger GNR fans on this board you gotta realize if there had been no Crue there would have been no GNR.

in response to Maddy's question, i believe this has to be a one time deal, because the Crue are going in the studio in May. this must be just a one-off gig for them. probably getting some good $$$ money to appear. that's probably the same reason Axl and Vince will be at the same venue WILLINGLY!! with that being said though, wouldn't it be cool if they buried the hatchet? it would be great for Rock N' Roll if GNR and Crue could tour the US together in '07.
