The Girls, Girls, Girls Tour was a concert tour by American glam metal band Mötley Crüe in support of their latest release Girls, Girls, Girls. Coming off of the massive success of the Theatre of Pain Tour and the single Home Sweet Home the album was a smash hit; with the title track becoming the most played song in strip clubs. The music video for Wild Side was filmed at the Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, Indiana. Whitesnake and an up and coming Guns N' Roses opened throughout the tour. The tour was also their last before all band members entered rehabilitation for alcohol and drug addiction. A planned 1988 European tour was cancelled by manager Doc McGhee fearing the band would not survive if they embarked on the tour.
