Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee and Vince Neil , collectively Mötley Crüe, returned to the top of the charts with Saints of Los Angeles, their first studio album in a decade with the original line-up back in 2008. Based on the band’s New York Times bestseller The Dirt, the disc debuted at #1 on the Independent Album chart and was the top debut of the week on the Billboard Top 200 albums at #4. “Saints of Los Angeles,” which was nominated for a Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy Award was also noted as the #1 Rock Song of the Year by iTunes critics. The band also started Crüe Fest in 2008, which was the most successful touring rock festival and the number ten tour overall (according to Rolling Stone), playing for nearly half a million rock fans throughout North America. This was swiftly followed by Crue Fest 2 in 2009, during which the band played the whole of the Dr Feelgood album every night in celebration of their 20th anniversary. Mötley Crüe has sold more than 80 million album copies worldwide,including 25 million in the U.S.
