Motley Crue, the iconic glam rock band from Los Angeles, has announced its truly final tour dates to end its 34-year-career in 2015.
The final days of the glam band actually started in 2014, and Motley Crue performed with give-it-all-you’ve-got-shows in several cities, which will see them again in 2015.
Motley Crue will tour across the United States and Canada, starting in July. If all goes well, they will find themselves back in their hometown on December 31, 2015, at the Staples Center for their last legendary final show. According to RelaxNews, the New Year’s Eve rock concert will be Motley Crue’s 34th show of the year.
The band plans to rock fans with five shows in Japan in February and two shows in Mexico in September. Motley Crue will also travel to Australia, New Zealand, and three European festivals: Download in England, Sweden Rock, and Austria’s Novarock.
Nikki Sixx, the bassist and main songwriter, wished the band had more time to tour more places in North America.
“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.”
If you’re lucky enough, you may be able to snag some Motley Crue tickets for around $177 each. But if you’re like the average person out there, most fans will have to pay an average of $283.52 each for concert tickets, according to Forbes. If you plan to be there for the final show on New Year’s Eve, you’re going to need at least $463.12 for one ticket on a secondary market.
Fellow hard rocker Alice Cooper will be joining Motley Crue in select shows to add to the all the bad boy glam and excitement. In 2014, pyrotechnics and a custom built moving “drum coaster” for Tommy Lee were favorites, so there is no telling what may happen in the last leg of the tour.
Motley Crue signed a Cessation of Touring Agreement last year, which will not allow them to tour in 2016 and probably longer. No one knows what the members of the band have planned to do individually, but it is hard to imagine Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, or Tommy Lee walking away from Motley Crue without looking back.
