Sixx AM release multiple-show day promo Tale Of Two Cities

Sixx: AM

Sixx AM have released a video documenting their multiple-show day in San Antonio and Dallas from last month.

Nikki Sixx and co performed at San Antonio’s River City Rock Fest before flying to Dallas on a private jet on the final day of their US tour leg. The clip shows them performing parts of their latest single Rise at both shows. It can be viewed on their Facebook page.

Sixx previously said of the song: “There’s no denying that right now, globally, there’s a sense of crisis. And I think that speaks to our first single off this record, Rise, which really addresses that.

“We’re not a political band by any stretch of the imagination, but we are certainly a very socially conscious band. Things that matter to us on a personal level are happening on a global level.

“We found that during the writing and the recording, we were so inundated by things going on around the world that really require some attention. And I think it’s safe to say that the world feels kind of wounded right now and is need of repair.”

Sixx AM are currently in Europe for a string of festival appearances, including Download Festival this weekend.
