Mötley Crüe to Retire Following Massive Tour

Posted by admin with No Comments

One last tour for the metal misfits — they mean it. Also announced: A country tribute album and film adaptation of “The Dirt”

After 30-plus years of world-class debauchery and spinning drum kits, Motley Crue is calling it quits with a 72-city North America tour and a legally binding agreement that prevents any of the four members from touring under the name. The tour starts July 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich., and runs through Nov. 21 in Vancouver, B.C. with Alice Cooper opening the shows. Their hometown gig will be at the Hollywood Bowl on July 21.

“We’ve talked about this for years,” bassist Nikki Sixx said Tuesday at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel. “It’s because we are on top, holding it together. We wanted to leave a legacy (and) we feel there are a lot of bands that don’t have dignity. We want to call it a day and be proud.”

Added singer Vince Neil, “We don’t want to be one of those bands where one guy is left. We wanted to go out with the four founding members and go out on top.” Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by admin with No Comments

After finishing up their 2013 Australian tour, Motley Crue will take a short break and head north to Canada for the band’s most extensive tour of the country ever. Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee announced 18 dates in six provinces on Monday.

Tickets for all shows will go sale on March 1. The run begins on April 20 in Penticton, B.C. and runs through May 14 in Ottawa. Canadian rockers Big Wreck will join the Crue as support act for all 18 shows. A full list of tour dates is below.

American fans of the band are no doubt wondering when it’s their turn. So far, just three dates in the States are listed at Motley.com. In 2012, Motley Crue toured the U.S. with Kiss. This followed a sold-out residency in Las Vegas at the Joint Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Both Kiss and Motley Crue are confirmed to headline Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisc. this July. [Source]

Motley Crue to rock Bangor Waterfront

Posted by admin with No Comments

Living up to its name was never a problem for Motley Crue, one of the quintessential “bad boy” rock bands of all time.

The Crue will be back on the road and for the first time in four years is including a Maine location on its international concert schedule. Motley Crue will play the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor on Thursday, May 16, with an opening act that has yet to be announced.

The four-man act from Los Angeles is famous — or infamous, depending on your point of view — for onstage motorcycles, acrobats, contortionists and strippers during shows. They’ve become not only one the most successful and gritty ’80s “hair bands” but also an iconic rock phenomenon that has lasted well beyond the ’80s despite plenty of dissension, disruption, drama and disaster.

“They just keep coming,” said Alex Gray, Waterfront Concerts chief promoter. “They just seem to get back to one thing, playing for a fan core that will do just about anything to go see them play. That passion is reflected from the band to the fans and back.” Read the rest of this entry »

Motley Crüe to perform in Ottawa May 14

Posted by admin with No Comments

OTTAWA Motley Crüe — the group that personifies almost every cliché of decadent rock and roll bands — is returning to Ottawa.

The biggest Canadian tour in the U.S. band’s history will stop at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa on Tuesday, May 14. Big Wreck is the opening act. It will be the final show in an 18-stop tour of the country.

The Los Angeles band, including Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Nikki Six and Mick Mars, reached its zenith with the 1989 album Dr. Feelgood, which had hits with the title track Kickstart My Heart and Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away).

In 2001 the band released a group autobiography titled The Dirt, and it confirmed the Crüe’s reputation for outrageous behaviour, with a heady mix of sex, death and trashed flats or hotel rooms.

Tickets for the May 14 show are $49.50 to $59.50, plus the usual array of “service” charges, and they go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 1, through capitaltickets.ca or livenation.com. They’re also available through the Scotiabank box office, the Sens Store or Sports Experts stores. [Source]
