Eleven Seven Music/Mötley Records will re-release Dr. Feelgood later this spring. Originally released on September 1, 1989, Dr. Feelgood reached #1 on the Billboard Charts and went on to sell more than 7 million copies worldwide, producing 5 Billboard Hot 100 hits. The title track reached #7 on the Hot 100 and earned the band their first two Grammy nominations (Best Hard Rock Performance: "Dr Feelgood" in 1989 and "Kickstart My Heart" in 1990). Twenty years later, the band, as vital as ever, were nominated for another Grammy Award and are celebrating their hit album Saints of Los Angeles on their Winter Arena tour.
Notes Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx, "On this summer's Crue Fest we really wanted to give the fans something they've never seen before. And since its the 20th Anniversary of the release of Dr. Feelgood, we figured what better way to celebrate than to play it live TOP TO BOTTOM every night."
Mötley Crüe recently returned to the charts with Saints of Los Angeles, their first new studio album with the original line-up -- Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee and Vince Neil -- in over a decade and the ninth studio album in their career. Based on the band's New York Times bestselling book, The Dirt, the disc debuted at #1 on the Independent Album chart and was the top debut of the week on the Billboard's Top 200 at #4. Last summer's multi-artist inaugural Crüe Fest was the most successful touring rock festival of the summer season according to Rolling Stone.
