The Motley Crue merchandise range is instantly recognisable, it comes from such a talented and legendary group, which is why their sales and fan base are still better than some other long living bands out there. Motley Crue was founded by Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee and then later completed with Mick Mars and Vince Neil; they formed in 1981 and immediately started their rise to fame by self-producing the record ‘Stick to your Guns/Toast of the Town`. Later that year the band produced their first piece of Motley Crue merchandise to accompany their debut album ‘Too Fast for Love` that sold 20,000 copies, it brought them instant recognition in the media eye and started them off on their first tour.
In their career together, the band have gone on over 30 different tours selling all sorts of different Motley Crue merchandise; selling immensely fast, it was noticed that their 'criminal' image and hard-living lifestyle was one of the main reasons they sold so much band merchandise. One of the peaks of their sales was when Tommy Lee got them banned from an entire city after throwing a television out of a hotel window; this got the band more publicity then they had dreamt of, giving an even larger fan base. Being in the band for three decades, there is no doubting that they sold an amazing amount of Motley Crue merchandise including things like:
In the band's career, Motley Crue merchandise has been very successful with figures like 80 million albums sold worldwide and 25 million in America alone, they have given themselves an amazing reputation that keeps drawing fans in for even more. Preparing to bring a new album out soon, band merchandise is sure to be flying off the shelves once again as Motley Crue gets everyone enticed in their heavy metal meets glam rock style. Starting the ‘Motley Crue 30th Anniversary Japan Tour` earlier this year has seen the band bringing a whole new range of exclusive Motley Crue merchandise out, which has got fans crazy for the old Motley image and heavy metal sound.
