LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Well, kickstart my heart. Motley Crue is retiring.
The four hard-rock bandmates — Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and
Mick Mars — made it official today, signing a “Cessation of Touring
Agreement” in Los Angeles, effective at the end of 2015.
“Everything must come to an end,” drummer Tommy Lee said. “We always
had a vision of going out with a big … bang and not playing county fairs and
clubs with one or two original band members. Our job here is done.”
The band, which formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, will definitely go out
with a bang. It will begin an 18-month world tour beginning July 2 in Grand
Rapids, Mich., with Alice Cooper joining the group on tour. The tour will also
coincide with a film based on the band’s book, “The Dirt.” Meanwhile, a
country music tribute album to the band is expected to be released this summer,
featuring LeAnn Rimes, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert and Cassadee
The tour will include a July 21 performance at the Hollywood Bowl, and a
show the following night at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Irvine.
The band — whose hits include “Home Sweet Home,” “Shout at the
Devil,” “Girls Girls Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood” and “Wild Side” — is
scheduled to appear tonight on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and on “CBS This
Morning” on Wednesday.
