We look forward to building the "Motel 6 Rock Yourself To Sleep Tour" into one of the most powerful brands in the touring business".

"We are proud to kick-off this collaborative effort aimed at gaining maximum exposure for young bands to their fan base," said Olivier Poirot, CEO of Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6. "We are happy to support the cause by providing these musicians with a clean, comfortable place to rest after each of their nationwide shows."
