It was announced some time last year that 2014 would be the last time Motley Crue would tour, but many took the news with a grain of salt. It seems the band wants to stick to their guns about the breakup. The band members signed a “cessation of touring agreement” at a press conference in Los Angeles yesterday (January 28). The agreement will go into effect at the end of 2015. The band also announced details for their final tour. It'll will kick off July 2nd in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The bad boys of metal will be hitting Tinley Park August 8 at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre. They'll return to Moline, IL later in the year on November 9. Surprisingly, the opening has been announced; it is none other than Alice Cooper. See the complete list of dates below. Tickets for the tour will go on sale this Friday (January 31st).
"We always had a vision of going out with a big f***ing bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members," drummer Tommy Lee said in a statement. "Our job here is done."
The final tour will coincide with two Crue release. The first is the 2015 biopic called “The Dirt” based off their revealing 2001 biography of the same name. There will also be a country music tribute to band entitled “Country Music Tribute to Motley Crue,” which will come out this summer.
