Mötley Crüe never does anything small, so it's not surprising the legendary hard rock quartet are determined to go out with a bang. After more than three decades together, iconic rock ‘n roll band Mötley Crüe announced today their Final Tour and the band’s ultimate retirement.
The announcement was solidified when the band signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, effective at the end of 2015, in front of global media in Los Angeles today.
The band will celebrate the announcement of the Final Tour with a performance at Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight and sit down exclusively with CBS This Morning tomorrow, Wednesday, January 29.
Mötley Crüe has proven they know how to make a lasting impression and this tour will be no different; Fans can expect to hear the catalogue of their chart- topping hits and look forward to mind-blowing, unparalleled live production.
“When it comes to putting together a new show we always push the envelope and that’s part of Mötley Crüe’s legacy,” explains Nikki Sixx. “As far as letting on to what we’re doing, that would be like finding out what you’re getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we’d like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch the Final Tour.”
The Final Tour presented by Dodge and produced by Live Nation will kick off in North America on July 2nd in Grand Rapids, MI and reach 72 markets before hitting international territories in 2015.
Fans can look forward to Very Special Guest, Alice Cooper joining Mötley Crüe for an incredible package – Alice invented the genre and Mötley Crüe put steroids in it!
As documented in the Cessation Of Touring Agreement the band signed at the press conference today, the band will not tour after this Final Tour. Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, and Mick Mars will go their separate ways after the lengthy 2-year touring cycle. Tommy Lee explains:
“Everything must come to an end!! We always had a vision of going out with a big f**king bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with 1 or 2 original band members! Our job here is done!!!” Of the band’s tumultuous history, Mick Mars adds "(It has been) more drama than ‘General Hospital’ it keeps 'em watchin and they keep comin’ back.”
Vince Neil says of the Finality of the tour - “I'll miss playing with the guys but I won't quit playing rock and roll!! I feel there are a lot of great opportunities and exciting projects after Motley.”
The Final Tour will coincide with the film made from Mötley Crüe’s NY Times Best-Selling book The Dirt. Jeff Tremaine (Bad Grandpa) has signed on to direct the opus that is set to debut in theaters globally in 2015, coinciding with The Final Tour.
