With all four members apparently still chummy enough to begin the “shameless promotional gimmicks” leg of prepping forthcoming album The Dirt, Motley Crue is now teasing what remains of its fanbase with a “colossal announcement” at an April 15 press conference in the City of Angels, including a contest designed to make you a part of this momentous communiqué, provided you’ve managed to get your taxes squared away and otherwise cleared your schedule by then. And don’t get airsick or mind reporting for free.
The four Crue lifers will “fly out one lucky grand prize winner from each major city across the country for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cover this announcement.” These future unpaid journos/bloggers-in-training will also get “the chance to interview the band and have it broadcast live.” The chances of this not being a tour announcement related to the $100 mil. deal the band was reportedly hacking out with concert megalith Live Nation are slim to nil, but ridiculous speculation/Methods of Mayhem reunion album rumors encouraged, if only to get DJ Aero’s hopes up.
