Motley Crue Announces Final Tour, Band Calling It Quits

(Los Angeles, CA) -- Motley Crue is making the biggest announcement of its career. After more than 30 years of hard rocking, the band is hanging it up. Crue co-founder Nikki Sixx says the time is right for the band to call it a day.
The band made the announcement Tuesday at the Beacher's Madhouse Theater in Hollywood while offering up details for a farewell tour that will include rock vet Alice Cooper. The stage for the press conference included makeshift headstones bearing the names of Motley Crue's members - Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee, which Sixx said was "to make a point." He added that they're not taking their finale lightly, but says it's "a huge celebration" for them because they're proud of the group. At the press conference, Motley Crue also signed a Cessation Of Touring Agreement, in which a binding legal document affirming that none of the band members will ever tour again as Motley Crue after their Final Tour is over. The presser also revealed developing plans for a Motley Crue tribute album featuring some of the top names in country music and a movie about the band based on their book "The Dirt."
Motley Crue will launch their Final Tour in Grand Rapids, Michigan on July 2nd. The tour, which will run through 2015, will include 72 North American stops followed by a run of international dates. VIP ticket packages will be available to the general public on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. local time, while tickets for most of the shows will go on sale on Friday. Motley Crue fan club members will be able to buy tickets and VIP packages on Wednesday.
