Motley Crue Announce Last Leg of Their Final Tour
Last week, Vince Neil mentioned during an interview that Motley Crue's last-ever show will be on Dec. 31, 2015, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the city where it all started for them. The band just confirmed the date as part of the last leg of their Final Tour.
The Crue will hit cities like New York, Detroit, Chicago and Atlanta during their last swing thrugh North America. They'll also play Las Vegas sometime between Sept. 10, when they perform in Mexico City, and their final show on New Year's Eve. That date will be announced later. You can see the tour's last-leg tour dates below.
"We've been doing this for 34 years," Tommy Lee told 'Fox & Friends,' where they showed up to announce the news. "We've done it all. We achieved everything we wanted to do. We want to go out with a bang instead of fizzle out."
"We wanted to go out as the same four guys who went in, with the same spirit," added Nikki Sixx. "We talked about this: 'How can we have a blast doing it?' It's been great. It's been fantastic."
The group -- which appeared on the morning show with tourmate Alice Cooper -- said that 'Home Sweet Home' will be the last song it will ever play and admit that it will be an emotional moment. Sixx even joked that maybe they should skip that one altogether, just so they don't shed any tears onstage.
The group announced its final tour a year ago, when they signed a Cessation Of Touring Agreement at a press conference. They spent most of 2014 on the road playing songs from their past 30 years.
But it won't all be over for Motley Crue after the tour. They're also assembling "the ultimate collector’s album package," which will be released later this year. The album will include the new track 'All Bad Things.'
