Motley Crue Adds 28 U.S. Concerts

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —

Following the huge success of their 2005 "Carnival of Sins" tour, which included more than 100 arena dates in the U.S. alone, Motley Crue will launch the next leg of its tour in Columbus, GA on February 10. In addition, the group will play a special performance at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit on New Year's Eve.

"Carnival of Sins" 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. They 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.
