In announcing its Crue Fest summer tour, 80s rockers Motley Crue unveiled a partnership with the videogame "Rock Band" that includes releasing new music for the game as well as giving fans a shot at real on-stage glory.

Motley Crue is releasing its latest single "Saints of Los Angles" as a downloadable playable track through the Rock Band store. Gamers can buy the track for $1 starting April 15 via the Xbox Live Marketplace for the Xbox 360, and April 17 via the PlayStationStore for the PlayStation3. It marks the first time a new single has been released for purchase on the game platform in advance of the album's street date. However the song is also available for streaming on YouTube.

Additionally, Rock Band will be part of the summer Crue Fest tour. Each stage of the tour will feature a Rock Band Second Stage Experience where attendees can match their game skills against one another on bass, guitar, drums and vocals. The winners at each stop will take the main stage and "perform" their songs between sets in front of the live audience.
