Motley Crue Manager: Personal Trainer + Nutritionist Working With ‘Some of Them’
Motley Crue’s co-headlining tour with Def Leppard is looking to be one of 2020’s biggest events. The Crue seem to be pulling out all the stops, including “some of them” hiring a personal trainer and nutritionist to prepare for the summer shows.
Crue manager Allen Kovac recently spoke to Fox Business about the band’s reunion tour and The Dirt, claiming “tens of millions of people” saw the Netflix biopic.
“The most relevant statement is that global film, with a global internet and global streaming, is the future,” he says. “When I go to Amazon, I can see a Motley Crue book, I can see a Motley Crue documentary, I can see a Motley Crue live show, I can see the fact that they got a film, they got CDs out and they got streaming and they’re selling merchandise. So to me, managers and artists should move into 2020 and out of 1999, and so should record companies. You can’t make music in quarters. You can’t develop an artist in a quarter. It takes a couple of years, sometimes a lot more.”
Kovac also responded to recent criticism of singer Vince Neil, who became a meme with a viral performance of “Kickstart My Heart.” “Some of them are working with a trainer, some of them are working with a nutritionist to make themselves the best they can be,” Kovac claims.
Though the manager didn’t name which members were working with a nutritionist and trainer, Kovac added, “Let’s see what Vince sings like and looks like when the tour goes out.”
Nikki Sixx later added in a tweet, "A lot of people don’t understand to lose fat and gain muscle you need to eat more food mixed with the right kind of cardio and strength training. If you are starving your body is gonna hold onto fat and eat the muscle. I eat 2500 macro balanced calories a day. I eat all day."
Motley Crue were one of Google’s Top 10 trending artist searches in 2019, while ‘The Stadium Tour’ with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett just set a local record for fastest stadium sellout.
