Crüe Fest 2

Crüe Fest 2 was the second year of the Crüe Fest touring festival, created and headlined by Mötley Crüe. The tour took place over the summer of 2009, and was in the same vein as the first Crüe Fest.

Line upEdit

On March 16, 2009, the line up for Crüe Fest 2 was announced at a press conference at the Fuse TV studio in New York City. The bands were confirmed to be Charm City Devils, Drowning Pool, Godsmack, and Theory of a Deadman, in addition to Mötley Crüe themselves.[1]

Nikki Sixx said of the line up, "This is what we imagined when we came up with the idea of Crüe Fest last summer – putting together the most kick ass bands on one bill for a day of rock. All of the bands on this tour compliment [sic] the others -- musically, theatrically and passionately."[2]

Mötley Crüe announced that they would play the entire Dr. Feelgood album every night of Crüe Fest 2, to celebrate the album's 20th anniversary.[3]

Second stageEdit

A second stage was added to the festival through a partnership with Monster Energy. The second stage had five additional bands performing, with one of these being a local band picked by a local radio station. The local band opened the Monster Energy Stage of Crüe Fest 2.[4] Cavo, Rev Theory, 16 Second Stare, and Shram were confirmed to be appearing on the second stage.[5]
