Motley Crue Calling It Quits After 33 Years, Will Head Out On 'Final Tour' With Alice Cooper
Motley Crue has announced that they'll be hitting the road one last time.
The band held a press conference in Beacher's Madhouse Theater in Hollywood on Tuesday, billed as "RIP: All Bad Things Must Come To An End," prompting speculation that they would give it one more go-round before officially calling it quits.
Alice Cooper will join the band to open all shows on the 72-date tour.
VIP packages and tickets for the band's fan club members go on sale Wednesday, January 29, and the public onsale begins on Friday, January 31.
Last fall, drummer Tommy Lee revealed that the band was planning a farewell tour because of guitarist Mick Mars' health issues.
Mars, 62, suffers from ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic form of arthritis that affects the spine and pelvis, making it difficult to stand for long periods of time. Mars denied Lee's sotry, but the band has reportedly been planning on hanging it up for years.
The four members of the band, singer Vince Neil, bassist Nikki Sixx, Lee and Mars, signed legal papers to put an official end to the group and to keep it from potentially continuing on with only one original member and a bunch of replacements.
