Mötley Crüe Calls It Quits After 33 Years

2108282

Mötley Crüe, the bad boys of rock ’n’ roll are calling it quits after 33 years. On Tuesday the band signed a legal “cessation of touring” agreement saying they will split up after their final tour, which launches this summer and ends in 2015. According to their attorney Doug Mark it was a peaceful, mutual decision among the four members to move on to other endeavors and confirm it with a binding agreement.

“We always had a vision of going out with a big fucking bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members,” said drummer Tommy Lee, “Our job here is done.”

The bands final tour, aptly named The Final Tour, will kick off in Grand Rapids, Michigan on July 2 and hit more than 70 cities in the U.S. before going international. Alice Cooper has been confirmed to be the opening act throughout the tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday and the seats will be priced as low as $15 to $25.

According to USA Today the band members already have plans and projects they are working on after the tour is over. Singer Vince Neil plans on getting more involved in the restaurant industry. Bassist Nikki Sixx will focus on his band Sixx:A.M., his radio show “Sixx Sense” and is also working on a Broadway play. Guitarist Mick Mars will work on a solo album and is currently writing an autobiography. Tommy Lee said “he has some big surprises planed.”
