Motley Crue has signed a legal agreement to stop touring, but according to Vince Neil, that doesn’t mean the band is breaking up. So while their “death pact” is a binding agreement that says the band will no longer tour together, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they will never come together and play in the future.
The 80s rock group, Motley Crue, met at Beacher’s Madhouse in Hollywood last week and made the “biggest announcement of their career”. In a crowd made up of more than 100 media outlets and other’s excited to hear the big news, the band announced that they would be having a “Final Tour” before they hung up their hats and retired for good.
Many were disheartened by the news, believing that after Motley Crue ended their tour in 2015, that they would never play again; but there may be a ray of hope for fans. According to Loudwire, while speaking to “Shmonty and Conklin in the Morning” radio show on KDKB in Phoenix, Motley Crue singer, Vince Neil, said that this isn’t the end for the group.
“Here’s the thing. Motley Crue’s not breaking up. We’re still gonna be making music. We’re still [gonna be selling] merchandise and stuff like Motley Crue things. We’ll probably just make music — do songs for certain things. Motley Crue will still be around, we’re just not gonna tour anymore. That’s really kind of it.”
As far as future performances go? Neil did confirm that the band is done touring, though there may be a few cases where the band may come back together. According to the Examiner, when asked about the possibility of performing as a part of a Hall of Fame induction, Neil responded with, “Probably so, but that would probably be it. I mean, there’s no more touring.”
When Motley Crue first made their big announcement, they stated that they wanted to go out as a legacy. They continued on to say that they all came to a mutual agreement to peacefully put an end to their touring adventures.
Attorney Doug Mark stated that “Other bands have split up over rancor or the inability of people to get along, but this is mutual among all four original members and a peaceful decision to move on to other endeavors and to confirm it with a binding agreement.”
