Mötley Crüe is not going on a farewell tour.
They're going on their final tour.
The hard rock band took legal steps to ensure that their upcoming tour will be their last. At Tuesday's pres conference, each band member signed something called a Cessation Of Touring Agreement. Band Attorney, Doug Mark of Mark Music & Media Law, explains “Other bands have split up over rancor or the inability of people to get along, but this is a mutual among all four original members and peaceful decision to move on to other endeavors and to confirm it with a binding agreement.”
Mötley Crüe wants to end with all of their members. Tommy Lee explains that the band wanted to go out together on a big tour and, "not playing county fairs and clubs with 1 or 2 original band members."
So, over the next two years, the band will play 72 shows. Alice Cooper is coming along, also. On August 22, they will play at Jiffy Lube Live.
