Mötley Crüe will be kicking off their 2013 Canadian tour in Penticton at the South Okanagan Events Centre on April 20.

The tour marks the most expansive run of Canada in the band's history with 18 show dates from Vancouver to Quebec.

Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, the quartet — Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee, has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years.

In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, three Grammy nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance and countless sold out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans. After three decades of decadence, Mötley Crüe maintains its iron will, capturing new fans and influencing musicians across multiple generations.

The first rock band in history to have completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Mötley Crüe is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Lee’s 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song Sex released in summer 2012), but remain on the forefront of entertainment via cutting edge social media interaction.

The band was featured in the award winning Super Bowl commercial for the KIA Optima. Motley Crue's New York Times bestselling memoir, The Dirt is currently being adapted into a major motion picture.

Mötley Crüe will be joined by special guests Big Wreck who released a third full-length album Albatross last year. Big Wreck returned to the sound that rose them to fame in the 90's with well-crafted tracks, powerful vocals and guitar solos.

Tickets for Mötley Crüe are $44, $64, $84 and $104 (plus service charges). Tickets can be purchased online here, by telephone at 1-877-SOEC-TIX (763-2849) or in person at the Valley First Box Office at the SOEC and Wine Country Visitor Centre starting Friday, March 1 at 10 a.m.
