About Motley Crue
Will Motley Crue's final shows take place in Sin City?
Has Motley Crue's biopic, "The Dirt," finally made its way out of a so-called 'Hollywood purgatory'? That's the question Rolling Stone is asking after Focus Features picked up the film and began development on it (with credit for that tidbit attributed to the Hollywood Reporter).
According to the report, the company has retained Jeff Tremaine (who has worked on "Jackass" and "Bad Grandpa") as director, and is also working with the script that Rich Wilkes wrote with the "Californication" creator Tom Kapinos adapted form the band's 2001 memoir, "The Dirt: The Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band." The production company will apparently begin looking for actors in the near future.
In other news, Vince Neil has talked about the possibility of a string of official 'final shows' to take place in Las Vegas. That information came to light when Neil was speaking with the Las Vegas Sun, and he said, "I hope we can have our final after-party at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip where we began 34 years ago, if it hasn't been torn down by then. It would be a fitting place to celebrate the beginning and the end."
Motley Crue has yet to confirm its final farewell plans. All band members previously signed a 'cessation of touring agreement' that will be enacted at the end of the year. Tour dates currently listed on their website for 2015 include February dates in Asia and June dates in Europe.
Motley Crue set to kick off final tour
Motley Crue is really taking this final tour thing seriously. So seriously, in fact, that all four members of the band signed an agreement that will permanently dissolve the group after its final concert.
Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee all appeared for a signing ceremony for a "cessation of touring agreement," which their lawyer said would bring a peaceful end to the group. The signing took place in late January 2014.
The first leg of "The Final Tour" kicks off in Grand Rapids, Michigan on July 2 – but the termination isn't valid until the end of 2015. That's because Motley Crue will take their final tour global, with one very special guest. Alice Cooper will join the group as the global tour winds down, and when all is said and done the retirement trek will have lasted some 70 dates.
Motley Crue's final tour will (of all things) service to promote a country music album paying tribute to the band, due for release in summer 2014, as well as their movie "The Dirt," set to bow in 2015. Unfortunately for fans, Motley Crue won't be issuing any new music before hitting the road. Sixx blamed a "segmented radio environment unsuitable for their brand of rock" for the decision. The band's most recent new song was "Sex," recorded at Lee's studio in advance of a co-headlining tour with Kiss. Their last studio album was "Saints of Los Angeles" in 2008. It is possible that Motley Crue will release its new music in a song-by-song format, but fans will have to stay tuned for details.
A History of Motley Crue tickets
Their name says it all, and since they began performing in 1981, the four members of Motley Crue have done everything possible to draw attention to their motley ways. Legendary for their wild antics on stage and off, Motley Crue has built a massive following almost as much for their head-banging, hard-partying, devil-may-care lifestyle as for their heavy-hitting, thick- metal rock music. And though they have chilled out some in their off-stage lives, their concerts are still a wall of insanity that they've always been known for. Motley Crue tickets are a chance to see one of the most storied rock bands of all time.
A Consistent Theme
Motley Crue began as the quartet of guitarist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, who founded the band, then added guitarist Mick Mars and lead singer Vince Neil. They headlined around the Los Angeles heavy metal club circuit until they recorded their first album, Too Fast for Love in 1981, which had modest success on the Billboard album charts and continued attracting fans. Though it didn't bring them stardom their debut album established the band's sound, a throbbing, driving, amped-up metal rock that grabs hold and forces you to move, or else. That sound, which has served Motley Crue quite well, has remained consistent throughout their 30 years of performing, to the delight of their fans, who can depend on the Crue to give them exactly what they expect every time. Motley Crue's second album, Shout at the Devil, in 1983, elevated them to the next level, not only due to the controversy they incited with suggestions of devil worship. They scored hits with the singles 'Looks That Kill' and 'Too Young to Fall in Love,' as well as 'Shout at the Devil,' which became a favorite at their live shows. By now, Motley Crue was joining the ranks of Poison and Def Leppard in the top ranks of glam-rock bands known for their heavy face makeup, large, teased hair, trend-setting clothing and partying ways. By the time they released their third album, Theatre of Pain, in 1985, hit singles were expected, and 'Smokin' in the Boys Room' delivered. However, the band showed a touch of expansion with the power ballad 'Home Sweet Home,' another hit single from their third album. Motley Crue contined to deliver the goods through the rest of the decade, scoring more hits with their albums Girls, Girls, Girls in 1987 and Dr. Feelgood in 1989.
Though the members of Motley Crue tamed their partying some after a decade of heavy drugs and drinking (including near overdoses and near-fatal car accidents), they continued to live up to their name. Tommy Lee was arrested for indecent exposure during a tour in Cincinnati, and singer Vince Neil was arrested for inciting a riot in Milwaukee. No matter, their fans continued to flock to their shows, and that hasn't changed, even after 30 years. With the release of the movie The Dirt, an autobiography of Motley Crue, the band is back in the headlines, reunited, working on new tunes, and packing concert venues again.
