Motley Crue Releases New Song and Announces Final Touring Route


Motley Crue have announced the details of their final tour and final performance. This will mark the end of the group's touring career and will conclude the two-year "The Final Tour" cycle at the end of 2015 on New Year's Eve, December 31 at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles where the band's career began 34 years ago. MÖTLEY CRÜE first announced plans for "The Final Tour" in January 2014 by signing a a formal "cessation of touring" agreement that goes into effect at the end of 2015 and prohibits the members of the group from going on the road again under the MÖTLEY CRÜE banner.

The 2014 leg of "The Final Tour" was one of last year's top grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million.

"MÖTLEY CRÜE's 'Final Tour' has been a massive global success and a true testament to the popularity of this legendary rock band," says Rick Franks, Live Nation's Regional President of North American Concerts. "New Year's Eve 2015 will mark the end of an era in rock history but there's no doubt that MÖTLEY CRÜE's music will influence generations of artists for years to come."

After thirty-four years performing together, the 2015 leg of "The Final Tour" will see the band play Japan in February, then Australia/New Zealand in spring. In June MÖTLEY CRÜE will say farewell to the European festival circuit with three massive performances at Download (UK), Sweden Rock (Sweden) and Nova Rock (Austria) festivals before taking their can't-miss show back to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico this summer for 34 final North American shows due to tremendous fan demand.

The North American dates will see the band visit cities such as Chicago, New York, Toronto, Atlanta, Mexico City and will be taking place in arenas exclusively to ensure fans in all cities get to experience the full show production of "The Final Tour".

"In some of the cities, we could only reach a fraction of the fans who wanted to come see us play last year because of ticket demand, so we're coming back to those places to bring them our full production including the Crüecifly drum coaster, as well as all pyro and every other bell and whistle," says MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx. "Even despite the overwhelming fan demand, we can only add so many new cities in North America because of our commitment to take 'The Final Tour' global on our final year."

Audiences can also expect a high-energy performance from very special guest Alice Cooper, who joined MÖTLEY CRÜE for "The Final Tour" in 2014. He will be tearing up the stage for crowds across North America once again. The pairing has been roundly praised as a must-see by fans and media alike.

The band's exclusive VIP Packages (including opportunities to meet band members, exclusive merchandise and more) and fan club pre-sales for these dates start tomorrow, (Wednesday, January 21) at 10 a.m. EST, with a special Citicard member pre-sale beginning at 5 p.m. EST the same day.

Following the North American summer shows, the band will take "The Final Tour" on more international dates this fall before "all bad things come to an end" for good on New Year's Eve 2015.
