KFIX Rock News: Motley Crue Reveal Farewel Tour Cities & Dates, Wichita, KC, & Denver Shows Scheduled

cruefarewellAfter 33 years of thrilling audiences around the world, Mötley Crüe is calling it quits.

Sitting behind tombstones bearing their names, frontman Vince Neil, drummer Tommy Lee and guitarists Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars revealed during a press conference on Tuesday at Beacher’s Madhouse Theater in Hollywood, CA, that the group will be disbanding following a farewell outing, which will kick off later this year.

Neil says the guys decided it would be best for them to end the band while all its members are still alive.

“We don’t want to one of those bands that maybe have one guy left in it, or somebody’s brother or something that,” he told reporters. “We want to go out with the four founding members of Mötley Crüe, and go out on top.”

Mars adds, “We had every intention of doing and accomplishing everything that we did. We did it [and] we’re now announcing our final tour. We love each other like brothers, and…it’s time for us to throw the towel in, so to speak.”

Crüe’s final trek boasts a total of 72 shows, with 60 of the dates going on sale on Friday. Legendary rocker Alice Cooper will be the opening act for the tour.

In order to make sure that all the group’s fans get tickets to catch one of their final shows, a large number of the tickets to the upcoming gigs will be priced at just $15. Sixx notes they pared down the prices because he feels that too many other bands charge way too much for concert tickets these days.

“We want to leave a legacy [and] we want to have some dignity,” he explains. “We feel there’s a lot of bands out there that don’t have dignity. We want to call it a day and be proud. It’s pretty embarrassing what’s happening in the state of music with bands out there. I don’t want to name names, because I just don’t think it’s really my place, but you know there’s so many bands out there just…ripping you off, and we’re not gonna do that.”

To further solidify the fact that the group’s is officially breaking up at the end of the tour, the press conference concluded with each of the guys signing a legal document that prevents any of them from using the Mötley Crüe name for future tours.

To celebrate the announcement of their farewell tour, Mötley Crüe will pay a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band is scheduled to perform a mini-concert on the late-night show’s outdoor stage tonight on ABC at midnight ET/11 p.m. CT.
