Mötley Crüe Set Date of ‘Final Show’ (Which Is Totally Not Their Final Show)

Ever hear the one about the band who said they were retiring and never touring again? Yeah, swap out that name for Mötley Crüe.

Mötley Crüe have announced the details of their final performance, which you can bet your sweet ass is most definitely not their final performance. 

The show will mark the end of their touring career and will conclude their two year 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. The band will be celebrating this week’s big announcement with a performance on “The Tonight Show” on 1/22.

Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their 2-year Final Tour by signing a Cessation Of Touring Agreement at a press conference in Los Angeles in January 2014, solidifying the end of their Final Tour at the end of 2015. Because nothing is forever binding like a piece of paper signed at a press conference. If motherfuckers can ignore the Kyoto Treaty, a “no more touring” contract isn’t likely to be ironclad.

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,” explained bassist Nikki Sixx. “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. 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.”
