Sixx Sense Radio

Nikki Sixx is dovetailing his past and his future.  The rocker tells his band Sixx:A.M. will be heading out on their first headlining trek during a break in Motley Crue's final tour. 

Sixx:AM's thee-week road trip will begin in San Francisco on April 8th. Apocalyptica is on board as the opener.  Nikki admits the timing isn't the best.  But he says he's so proud of Sixx:A.M. and their new album, Modern Vintage that he had to "take advantage of this time to give the fans what they want."

Sixx is also cautioning fans to not expect a Motley Crue-type performance at Sixx:AM shows, because he'd "never disrespect Motley Crue and do that."  He says his new group's concerts will be "like nothing that Motley Crue has ever done." 

Nikki explains that Motley Crue is "this beautiful, four-headed monster" while Sixx:A.M. is a new group that will have "a different interpretation of what a rock band is."
