Motley Crue Announce Final Tour Dates, Cessation of Touring Agreement

Following over 30 years of touring, recording and questionable behavior, glam metal stalwarts Mötley Crüe have decided to call it a day. The band held a press conference in Los Angeles yesterday to announce the details of their final run, including that the band has signed a “cessation of touring agreement” that legally prevents them from reuniting following the completion of their farewell tour.

The band revealed the first set of dates for their last hurrah, which will run from July 2 in Grand Rapids, MI, through November 21 in Vancouver. More dates are expected, as the touring agreement is scheduled to take effect at the end of 2015. In addition, Alice Cooper will join Mötley Crüe for the duration of their tour.

In related news, a biopic based on the band’s collaborative autobiography The Dirt is scheduled for release in 2015.

Milkin this tour Motley. Don’t think you guys have enough dates

notajamband January 29, 2014, 11:07:32

There best record was there first “too fast for love” vince lost his voice a long time ago!!! They should call it the retirement tour or the 401K tour!

Ted furthur January 29, 2014, 11:17:25

Lucky for us in Grand Rapids. We get motley Crüe to van andel but we can’t get phish, string cheese widespread or anyone else worth seeing. Why not add Bob Segar and kid rock to the schedule again while their at it… Sucks to live in Grand Rapids. We have this great arena but need to travel to see all the good shows.

Doug R. January 29, 2014, 11:24:51

We know what WE won’t be doing in our hometown on Oct.21st.I saw them in 82,87 & again in 2000.NEVER again after that last fiasco.Smh!!

Friend of the Devil>Shout at the Devil ?

burning_beard January 29, 2014, 11:34:01

relax folks, most of these dates will probably be cancelled owing to poor ticket sales.
except of course the dates in the redneck belt. the crue!! duuuude!

i don’t understand the cessation of touring agreement. why bother? what are they going to do in 5 years when they need more money for blow?

Blooby January 29, 2014, 12:19:53

I knew the comments would be enjoyable for this story.

Two Deez January 29, 2014, 12:50:19

Thx to the Crue for kicking off their 401K tour in Grand Rapids….looks like they beat Phish to the Van Andel this year? And speaking of Phish, they have been touring for 30 years, and seem to be doing just fine. Maybe metal is dead, or should die. And when did Motley Crue become a jamband? Am I missing something.

April Fools, Right? January 29, 2014, 13:11:58

Really? Who?

Tim January 29, 2014, 13:31:43

These guys were entertaining…in 1983.

dk70 January 29, 2014, 13:41:43

I always thought these guys sucked, but the fact that they have lasted this long makes me feel that…..nahhhh, they still suck.

me January 29, 2014, 14:23:37

Say what you will but there was a time when these guys were rockin’... but Tim is correct, it was about 1983… Still love listening to their first album every once in a while… Live Wire is great for what it is… and the second album wasn’t too bad either… anyone in their 40s who listens to rock had at least 1 time in their lives when they would scream “Shout… Shout… Shout… Shout at the Devil!”

jiggy January 29, 2014, 15:53:33

Motley Crue would never play Bonaroo.

GPNocs January 29, 2014, 16:17:05

The only shocking fact to this story is that they were still together. The last time I heard anything about Motley Crue, the movie Teen Wolf was cleaning up at the box office.

ziggy January 29, 2014, 20:47:31

me, not so fast, no screaming crue in my crew…

Pokey January 30, 2014, 09:26:11

I disagree with all of your comments. Motley Crue rocks and I’ve seen them about 7 or 8 times and they have all been super fun shows. so many haters on here and I thought jam band fans had more of an open mind about music, I guess that’s just me.

old school January 30, 2014, 12:26:32

Alice Cooper? scary!!....what a joke!

Ricky Winals February 3, 2014, 22:15:26

Washed up….who cares about these money hungry losers….bashing out 50 years of 3 chord music to empty the fans piggy banks…..yawwwwwnnnnn.
