    Motley Crue denied a Live 8 appearance

    Motley Crue Turned Down By 'Live 8'

    06/20/2005 1:00 PM, Yahoo! Music
    LAUNCH Radio Networks

    Motley Crue is one of 65 bands that were reportedly turned down by organizers to appear at the July 2 Live 8 concert in London's Hyde Park, according to The Scotsman. The show's promoter told the newspaper, "We simply don't have room for them." Along with the five previously announced shows in Philadelphia, London, Berlin, Paris and Rome, additional concerts in Toronto, Tokyo and Johannesburg were expected to be confirmed this past Friday (June 17).


    The worldwide event will feature acts like Coldplay, Linkin Park, the Dave Matthews Band, Bon Jovi, the Cure, Elton John, Keane, the Killers, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Muse, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, REM, Snoop Dogg, Sting, U2, Snow Patrol, Brian Wilson, Crosby Stills and Nash, Faith Hill and event organizer Bob Geldof.


    Live 8 is aimed at increasing awareness of poverty and hunger in Africa, while pressuring world leaders at the upcoming G8 Conference to "make poverty history."


    Motley Crue is currently on tour in Europe, and returns to North America for summer shows beginning July 24 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

    Fun factor - BNL and GBS. This is a really good lineup for a summer party. Younger crowd will enjoy Simple Plan, Sam Roberts, Our Lady Peace. Thity somethings (ok, and the 40 somethings) have Motley, Deep, Tragically Hip and the Guess Who. Everybody will be hopping to BNL and GBS, they're both infectious. While the rest are playing you go get beer (they don't call it Molson Park for nothing). Don't forget we're Canadian so there's going enough weed to give the entire Third World the munchies. They're going to need debt relief to pay for their trip to White Castle.

    I missread what it said and thought it was just Cummings that was going, your right, not sure why they aint calling it the Guess Who, I think it has to do with a legal battle going on for the name, I think the old bass player owns the rights to it if I remember correctly...

    Congrats to Toronto Mayor David Miller who again came

    through with sweet fuck all when a very important

    issue (where to hold the show) came up.

    It will now be held in Barrie, 50 miles north of T.O.

    How Barrie can afford to host the event, and Toronto

    can't is beyond me.

    David Miller, commie fuckwad!!

    The GUESS WHO's piece of shit asshole bass player Jim Kale pulled some under-handed shit to get the rights to the band's name in the 70s after they broke up (this dude was thrown out of the band years before the actual break-up), and after backing out of the reunion in 2000, he decided to keep the name so he could tour bars with a bunch of no-names and keep all the revenues. This piece of shit never wrote a GUESS WHO song, has prevented the line-up of all members from the 70s peak to tour with the real name (in court) and advertises himself as the original line-up. Dude deserves to be shot in the back of the head by GUESS WHO fans. It would be the same as Michael Anthony touring as VAN HALEN when the other three original members are actually ready to go and can't use the name.

    BTW, I saw them in 2000 (the GUESS WHO) and they were amazing. Bachman, Cummings, Peterson (three of the original four), plus BILL WALLACE on bass (he was the band's bass player from 1972 until the break-up and played on more albums than Kale did, plus one of the other guitarists from the 70s that played on several albums including LIVE AT THE PARAMOUNT. In others words, this was the genuine GUESS WHO, and not one fucknut cared that JIM KALE wasn't there.

    I agree, I mean Rush IS THE ESSIENTIAL CANADIAN ROCK BAND. Canada had a History with Motley Crue remeber back in like around the time Shout At The Devil came out The Canucks keep planting bomb threats to keep them from playing shows. Also Why the hell didn't they drop Keane or Linkin Park are one of those other crappy atlernative bands to make way for the Crue? Thats just sickening.

    Bryan Adams, Motley Crue, Simple Plan and Tragically Hip Confirmed for Live 8 Canada
    Park Place (Formerly Molson Park) to play host to star-studded line-up

    TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - Organizers of Canada's contribution to the
    global Live 8 initiatives, today announced a stellar line up of over 20
    internationally acclaimed acts that will take to the stage at Park Place
    (formerly Molson Park) on Saturday, July 2nd from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m., with
    gates opening at 9 a.m.

    Confirmed performers(*) to-date include:
    - Bryan Adams - African Guitar Summit
    - Jann Arden - Barenaked Ladies
    - Blue Rodeo - The Bachman Cummings Band
    - Bruce Cockburn - Tom Cochrane
    - Deep Purple - DobaCaracol featuring Kna'an
    - Great Big Sea - Les Trois Accords
    - Gordon Lightfoot - Motley Crue
    - Our Lady Peace - Sam Roberts
    - Simple Plan - Tegan & Sara
    - The Tragically Hip

    Canadian comedians Dan Aykroyd and Tom Green will host the event, which
    will also feature a very special performance by Celine Dion live by satellite
    from Las Vegas.
    With the unprecedented assembly of live acts, ticket holders will enjoy
    the greatest line up of music ever including satellite feeds of Live 8
    concerts from across the globe, featuring Pink Floyd, U2, Sir Paul McCartney,
    Destiny's Child, Stevie Wonder, Sarah McLachlan and many more.
    Free tickets - limited to 2 per person - will be available to the public
    as of 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 23rd, and can be attained in Canada and the
    U.S. online from Ticketmaster's website only (www.ticketmaster.ca). According
    to Michael Cohl, producer of Canada's Live 8 concert, there is a twist on how
    people can get tickets. "We want people to understand why they're attending
    the concert, so anyone looking for tickets will have to answer a skill-testing
    question about Live 8," said Cohl. In order to secure tickets, concert-goers
    will be required to answer the following question:

    According to Live 8 and Make Poverty History, what can the G8 leaders do
    to help make poverty history?
    a) Increase foreign aid
    b) Cancel the debt of poor countries
    c) Make trade rules fair for the poor
    d) All of the above

    "I'm thrilled with the outpouring of support from the artistic
    community," said Cohl. "It promises to be a great show, but we have to
    remember that we're coming together to urge the government to cancel the debt
    and improve aid and trade."
    "1.2 billion people are living in abject poverty," says Gerry Barr, Co-
    chair of the Make Poverty History Campaign. "Every day, 50,000 people die from
    poverty-related causes. More than 800 million people go to bed hungry every
    night. These numbers can numb us with a sense that little can be done to end
    so much misery. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Poverty is not
    inevitable. We can make poverty history."
    Bob Geldof, the driving force behind Live 8, believes that July's G8
    conference presents a unique opportunity. "This is not a charity event. The
    concerts are rallying points for the largest constituency ever mobilized to
    call for justice for Africa and the world's poor." Geldof's goal is to
    eliminate the debts owed to the world's richest countries by the world's
    poorest countries.
    "We can make Live 8 a turning point in history," says Dave Toycen,
    President of World Vision Canada. "Canadians have a clear opportunity to add
    their voices to the millions who want the G8 leaders to end extreme poverty.
    We've already gathered more than 12,000 postcards asking Prime Minister Martin
    to increase aid to .7% of GNP and to push for better trade rules for poor
    countries. Together, we can take a big step to end child poverty."
    It was also announced today that CTV will be the host broadcaster for
    Live 8 Canada. CTV will broadcast the complete event live beginning at 11 a.m.
    ET on Saturday, July 2. In what is being planned as an historic, all-day, rock
    and roll television event, CTV will also broadcast live portions of additional
    Live 8 concerts from around the world. CTV will begin broadcasting live early
    on Saturday, July 2 when the first act takes to the stage in Europe and will
    continue until the last act finishes at the Canadian concert, sometime around
    8 p.m. ET. CTV also plans to air a "Greatest Hits" recap in primetime
    following the conclusion of the live broadcast with highlights from the most
    memorable performances of the day from around the world. See CTV's companion
    broadcast release for further details.
    "Live 8 is music with a message. All resources are on deck to bring
    viewers expansive coverage of this important international event," said
    Susanne Boyce, CTV's President of Programming and Chair of the Media Group.
    "CTV's expertise in live musical production will be utilized to let viewers
    feel like they are part of the action, both at home and abroad." Live 8 is
    part of a day of action across the world, which kick-starts The Long Walk to
    Justice that calls on the leaders of the world's richest countries to act when
    they meet in Gleneagles, Scotland, July 6-8. On July 2nd in Toronto, London,
    Edinburgh, Berlin, Philadelphia, Washington, Paris, Tokyo and Rome, millions
    will come together to call for complete debt cancellation, more and better aid
    and trade justice for the world's poorest people. The public is encouraged to
    visit www.live8live.com to learn what they can do to support Live 8 - whether
    they attend a concert, watch on TV or listen on the radio.

    Without the support of the following official sponsors, Canada's Live 8
    would not be possible;
    Standard Broadcasting - Official radio broadcaster of Canada's Live 8
    (radio details to be announced at a later date)
    WestJet, the official airline of Canada's Live 8, have offered to fly the
    performers and their crews to and from the event
    Rogers Wireless - Official wireless carrier of Canada's Live 8

    The Live 8 Canada concert will be produced by TGA Entertainment in
    cooperation with House of Blues Concerts.

    (*)Performers are subject to change without prior notice.)

    I just found this from The Motley Crue Board.

    With a lot of other bands you can sometimes kind of suspend disbelief and pretend that they give a tiny flying fuck about the cause of a charity concert and it just maybe isn't about the exposure it offers.

    That would be completely fucking impossible with Crue though...

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I guess Alex Lifeson is still getting over the shock of being tasered 6 times last year...

    Screw Honeymoon Suite, if we are talking canadian bands here I would rather hear Helix or April Wine, Triumph would be great but Rik Emmett is a pussball who would rather us forget he was ever in Triumph these days....Helix would rock the house down....(JK)

    Here's quote from the Canoe.com website.

    <Geldof said he wanted Canada on board from the beginning but just couldn't get here to help organize.

    Instead, he enlisted his friend, Toronto concert magnate Michael Cohl, whom Geldof met 30 years ago when Cohl organized gigs for the Boomtown Rats.

    The pair's initial conversations were about scheduling Cohl's clients - The Rolling Stones - at the London Live 8 gig.

    "It wasn't about Canada, but then Canada evolved out of those conversations. It was like my responsibility for not delivering the Stones (in London)," Cohl said .

    He hinted that "two to three more" major acts would be announced for the Canadian show in the coming days, although he stressed the Stones would not be one of them.>


    Two or three more major acts...don't rule Rush out just yet. My real problem with the whole show is why Barrie and why only 35k tickets? You hold the show at Downview, location of SARS Fest, and you can easily handle 500k. On Cananda day long weekend...I guarantee a quarter million show up in Barrie and crash the party. It's going to be a nightmare for the organizers. I will bare witness and laugh and laugh.

    Amazing there are no rumblings about Rush...how could they NOT be there!

    A Triumph reunion would of been cool.

    Who the hell is Deep Purple these days?

    Triumph would've been awesome.

    However, as Bug said, Emmitt seems like he just wants to forget Triumph ever happened.

    How can music fans, Rik??

    I agree with Full Bug. April Wine should have been on that bill.
