Motley Crue headlining the Sunset Strip Music Festival in August in LA

The fourth Sunset Strip Music festival has announced yesterday that Mötley Crüe will be the official honorees of this year event. On August 18th, an award ceremony at House of Blues will start the festivities and celebrate the band’s influence on the music boulevard. The City of West Hollywood will also recognize Mötley Crüe with a special day in their honor.

Drummer Tommy Lee said it was an honor to be recognized by the Sunset Strip Music Festival, and that it meant a lot to them to be recognized for their contribution to this historic place.

The legendary Sunset Strip was the departure of Mötley Crüe’s success, when they were performing at different Sunset Strip venues, like the Whisky A Go-Go and The Roxy Theatre, in the early 80s.

SSMF Executive Director Todd Steadman declared ‘Bursting onto the scene in the early ’80s with a sound and style that blended punk, glam and heavy metal, Mötley Crüe helped re-establish The Sunset Strip as one of the top music destinations in the world. The band has forever left their mark on the music industry and The Sunset Strip, and we’re looking forward to celebrating their influence and bringing their spirited energy to this year’s tribute event.’

It will be the 4th Sunset Strip Music festival, which started in 2008, and has celebrated Ozzy Osbourne in 2009, Slash in 2010, and has featured Korn, the Smashing Pumpkins, Kid Cuti and numerous other acts. The festival will last three days in six indoor venues, Cat Club, House of Blues Sunset Strip, Key Club, The Roxy Theatre, Viper Room and Whisky A Go-Go, featuring a street festival and outdoor stages the last day.
And the artist lineup for 2011 will be announced soon
