Well Crueheads, we've heard about Motley's infamous 1982 "Cruesing Through Canada" tour for 35 yrs. Bomb threats, bar fights, border issues with Crue's S&M paraphenilia . . . the good old days! We never had any pics or video or audio of this tour, just Crue memories, until June 9th, 2017!
This 35 yr old news clip popped up yesterday from CBC Edmonton News in Canada. The boys are lipsyncing the Leathur version of "Live Wire" at the bar Scandals, where they're to be performing for the third night in a row. They address a bomb threat that Crueheads later learned was a band publicity stunt! Nikki, of course, has a few words & there's about 1 minute of absolutely vintage, rare & awesome early Motley!!! Here's a news article spelling out the video:
"Too Fast For Love" era footage is rare & we are so excited to add this clip to the archives! What other film is there from 1981-1982?
1. Starwood first performance, rough edit of two nights, four shows.
2. early vids for "Take Me To The Top" & "Public Enemy #1
3. MTV clip of the boys at the Roxy in November 1981
