Motley Crue almost called off their reunion tour - because they didn't think anyone would be interested.

The band thought long and hard before returning after spending six years in the rock wilderness - and their decision has been thoroughly vindicated.

Frontman NIKKI SIXX says, "There was a lot of confusion, a lot of dysfunction and a lot of worry on whether it would work and whether it would mean anything to people.

"But when the first show sold out in three minutes flat I guess the concern was lifted."
