Motley Crue will kickstart the heart of Penticton this spring.

Vocalist Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee will have Dr. Feelgood destroying healthy eardrums and will be screaming for Girls, Girls, Girls at the South Okanagan Event Centre April 20.

The band has had a wild ride through 30 years of rock history. Tommy Lee performed for the tabloids, thanks to a marriage to Pamela Anderson, as well as with other bands such as Sum 41. Nikki Sixx had a weird self-destruction rivalry with Black Sabbath-frontman Ozzy Osbourne.

They've sold 80 million albums, have seven multi-platinum albums, 22 top 40 mainstream rock hits, six top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and three Grammy nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance

The Crue's Penticton show will be the first stop in their biggest Canadian tour. There will be 18 show dates and the last will be in Ottawa. Special guests will be Canadian rockers Big Wreck.

Tickets can be found online at or in person at the SOEC box office. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
