Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe, Sixx:A.M.) has announced the end of his Sixx Sense radio show and spinoffs. Sixx decided to end the program so he can focus on other projects such as his photography, his TV endeavors, and the Broadway adaptation of “The Heroin Diaries”. His final show will be broadcasted on December 31.
Julie Talbott, president of Premiere Networks, commented:
“When we first partnered with Nikki in 2010, we set out to create a unique program from the perspective of true rock star, and that’s exactly what we did. We’re proud of the work we did together to make ‘Sixx Sense’ one of the most widely syndicated rock radio programs in the country while establishing the ultimate platforms for rock music fans, as well as new and established artists. It’s been a pleasure working with Nikki, and we wish him all the best.”
“I grew up discovering music on the radio. So to host my own show over the nearly eight years of ‘Sixx Sense’ was beyond my wildest dreams. I could not have done it without my amazing team in the studio, or the guests, musicians, and listeners that brought the show to life. It’s been an inspirational journey and I’ll always be a fan of the medium, but it’s time to shift gears outside the realm of solely radio. I’m in the process of developing new and unique programming and ventures across multiple platforms. But I’m really gonna miss ‘Sixx Sense’.”
If your curious about his other projects it is worth noting that he is working on the Broadway adaptation of “The Heroin Diaries” with former Live Nation Chairman and “Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark Broadway” producer Michael Cohl, and that it will feature music from the Sixx:A.M. album of the same name.
Sixx will also be taking his “Conversations with Angels” photo exhibit around the world in partnership with Leica Camera. That will be on display at the Leica Gallery in Los Angeles, through November 5. Leica also plan to release a limited edition Nikki Sixx Leica Q camera as well.
Furthermore, Sixx will also serve as a mentor on the Canadian talent show “The Launch.”
The 10th anniversary editions of “The Heroin Diaries” book and album will be available on October 27.
