Attention Girls, Girls, Girls. Motley Crue announced on Jan. 27 that they will be heading on tour again — and this one, will sadly be their last.
With tears our my eyes, we must admit that yes, the rumors are true — Motley Crue have officially announced they will be done . . . but that will come after their final tour. During a press conference at Beacher’s Madhouse Theater in Hollywood, Cali., we watched Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars break the news this new tour will be their last.
Motley Crue Announce Break Up, Final Tour
“All Bad Things Must Come To An End.”
That’s the catch phrase on the poster for the band’s final tour, which will feature guest Alice Cooper. When the guys, who have been playing together for 33 years, headed up on the stage where there were four tombstones, one for each of the guys.
“This will be the final tour, this is it,” host, Joey Vandetta said, and they would be joined by Alice Cooper. “Alice kinda invited it, and Motley Crue shot it up with steroids and a bunch of other things that we can’t talk about,” he continued. “There’s going to be 72 days when all is said in done!”
The fan club & VIP pre-sale tickets go on sale Jan. 29, and the general public tickets go on sale Jan. 31. Tickets will be as low as $15 to make sure all and any fans can come.
Motley Crue Agrees To Never Tour Again
Many bands that call it quits end up later on going back on tour, whether it’s with new band members, or some other way. However, that will not be the case for Motley Crue, the band formed by Nikki and Tommy in 1981.
“They don’t agree on much, and they said, ‘We all agree that we’re going to hang it up,” the band’s attorney said. “We came up with a methodology for these four guys to join at the hip and overcome trademark law, partnership law, and do something bands haven’t done before to my knowledge — to all agree to lock it away. It wasn’t easy, and everyobdy had their own council. And they’re ready to come sign [a contract] today, and hang it up.”
So, don’t call it a farewell tour — because that means they could be back.
“We don’t want to be one of those bands that maybe have one guys left in it, or somebody’s brother,” Vince said on stage. “We wanna go out with the four founding members of Motley Crue and go out on top and leave a legacy of a band called Motley Crue.”
While we’re sad it’s the final one, we’re loving that the men will be together and go out the right way. Do you agree, HollywoodLifers?
