NIKKI SIXX EPISODE PREMIERING SATURDAY MARCH 28 AT 10 PM ET/PT.

(March 16, 2015 – New York, NY) – VH1’s Classic presents ROCK ICONSan original docu-series profiling the most legendary artists in the history of rock music.  To kick off his band, Sixx:A.M. ‘s first headline tour ever, VH1 Classic will run their episode centering around Nikki Sixx on Saturday, March 28th at 10pm EST/PST.  Get a glimpse of the episode.

VH1 Classic describes the episode… Nikki Sixx- The Architect: The sordid life of Mötley Crüe bass player Nikki Sixx is well-known, thanks to headlines on MTV News and the lurid smash autobiographies The Dirt and The Heroin Diaries.  VH1’s “Rock Icons” doesn’t add to the effluent, instead, when we chat with Nikki in his L.A. radio studio, the focus is placed squarely on a different story of Mr. Sixx – that of the musical architect, provocative artist and tireless visionary.  Sixx’s contemporaries – including Mötley Crüe singer, Vince Neil and Sixx:A.M. singer & producer James Michael – are speaking about their work with him in the upcoming episode.

Sixx:A.M. are taking Apocalyptica from Finland and Vamps from Japan on the afore-mentioned headline tour – putting together a truly international package to introduce their fans to some of the best new music from all around the globe. All tour dates below. For tickets and more info go to www.sixxammusic.com.

The Heroin Diaries led to Nikki speaking on Capitol Hill about drug addiction and recovery and is currently being turned into a Broadway play.  His photography is a passion that he shares with fans through books like This Is Gonna Hurt all the way through to his social media @nikkisixxpixx on instagram.
