    Cruefest 1 2008 Review

    Motley Crue announced they were doing their own festival:  Cruefest.

    It was pretty cool, but unfortunately, they only did it in 2008 and 2009.

    But I went to both years and I really enjoyed it both times.

    This year it was Motley, Buckcherry, Papa Roach, SIXX AM, and Trapt.

    Trapt opened.  I don’t remember much of them (I’m typing this in 2023.) but I know they did a solid set.

    SIXX AM played next.  I’ve been a fan of theirs from the start.  It includes Nikki Sixx of Motley (he did double duty on this tour) on Bass, DJ Ashba on Guitar, and James Michael on Vocals.  Really good band.

    Papa Roach I’ve never been a big fan of, but I must say they put on a great show.  Singer Jacoby Shaddox even went into the audience at one point, which was awesome.  I give it to them, they were very good.

    Buckcherry were next.  Been a fan since their first album in 1998.  They were in the midst of a comeback at this point and they were rocking big time.  Great stuff.

    Then Motley closed with a great set of classics and a couple of new songs from their great latest album at the time, Saints Of Los Angeles.

    Really good show all around.
