Move over Kanye West, another musical celebrity is setting up camp in Wyoming.

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has decided to live — at least temporarily — in Wyoming, according to metal site MetalHeadZone.com.

Sixx’s wife Courtney posted a photo on her Instagram account Tuesday of the lovely head-banging family in a private jet with the caption: “Bye-bye L.A. Hello Wyoming.”

Whether it’s a permanent move or not, we don’t know.

We know the rocker is in Teton County because a trusted Cowboy State Daily reader from the Jackson area texted us.

“I just saw Nikki six from Mötley Crüe walking down my street,” the reader said. “He was with her and she was pushing a stroller.”

Perhaps the rocker will stay in Jackson for awhile now that the band’s world tour has been cancelled. Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts had been scheduled to begin touring in America on June 18.

Sixx announced the cancellation of the tour yesterday.

“The official decision has been made to move all 2020 North American Stadium Tour dates into the summer of 2021. The new stadium dates are being rescheduled, your tickets will be honored for all postponed shows and refund policy information will be made available shortly.

“Stay tuned, be safe and we will see you next year.”
