Motley Crue + Kiss Detroit-Area Show Postponed Following Pyrotechnics Truck Crash
If you know anything about Motley Crue and Kiss, it’s that the two bands really love their pyro. So it was definitely a little scary when a transport truck carrying some of Motley Crue’s pyrotechnic equipment was involved in an accident en route to the band’s performance tonight (Sept. 5) in Clarkston, Mich.
The good news is no one was hurt. And while fans may miss out on the show tonight, the bands have rescheduled the show for tomorrow (Sept. 6). Both Crue and Kiss have updated fans through a series of Tweets and an official statement. Read their comments below:
Bassist Nikki Sixx tweeted about the incident online, stating:

TONIGHT’S KISS & MOTLEY CRUE SHOW AT THE DTE ENERGY MUSIC THEATRE IN DETROIT IS POSTPONED UNTIL TOMORROW NIGHT THURS SEPT 6TH! — Nikki Sixx (@NikkiSixx) September 5, 2012
In addition to the Sixx tweets, both bands issued a joint statement that was posted on KissOnline:
On its way to Detroit, our pyro truck was involved in an accident and flipped, spilling our gear all along the freeway.
We owe you the show you expect and deserve, so we’ve jointly decided to give our crews the 24 hours necessary to piece everything together to make it possible.
The party is now Thursday night, September 6th. See you there!
Though the show is only delayed by one night, the Detroit Free Press reports that ticket refunds are available at the point of purchase if needed.
