According to the Bassist he claims he has been “training like crazy” in ahead of the band’s “The Stadium Tour,” which starts on June 18 in Jacksonville, Florida.

During an interview with  Westlake Magazine & West Luxury Magazine NIKKI SIXX was asked how he gets ready for upcoming tours revealing:

“I train like crazy for tours. You don’t want to step onstage and not have double the stamina as the length of the show. I do fasted cardio, weight training and HIIT (high intensity interval training). I eat 2,250 calories a day. And then, of course, there is building stamina around my bass playing. I’ve got to be ready to go fast and hard for 90 to 120 minutes while jumping around like a madman and singing background vocals. You don’t just wing rock ‘n’ roll. It’s a sport.”

Late last year, MÖTLEY CRÜE’s manager Allen Kovac appeared on FOX BUSINESS Television and discussed and addressed some of the criticism of the band members health saying,”some of” the members of the band were working with trainers and nutritionists to get in shape for the upcoming stadium tour.

Kovac revealed

: “Some of them are working with a trainer, some of them are working with a nutritionist to make themselves the best they can be. The greatest insecurity for an artist is: Is anyone going to care about my music? Is anyone going to buy a ticket? We were in November when the discussions were happening, and these guys were already into regimens of how they get ready for a tour.”

“Let’s see what VINCE NEIL sings like and looks like when the tour goes out.”

Back in 2014 VINCE NEIL spoke to SouthFlorida.com, and revealed what his daily training regiment is saying:

 “You’re running for two hours on stage every night. That pretty much keeps you in shape,” he replied. “It is a regimen. Usually on the day of the concert, I’ll get to the [venue] around 4 p.m. We always have a meet-and-greet at 5:30 p.m. Then I go relax on my bus until 8 p.m. I get dressed and I’m onstage at 9. That’s the way it is every day.”
