Tour Tuesday: RIP Mötley Crüe
The Final Tour
This news can’t wait for Music Monday. So I bring you Tour Tuesday.
Motley Crue is calling it quits. But not for the reasons most other bands do.
They want to go out on top. And what better way then to legally force themselves to at the end of 2015 when their Final Tour ends and they, as a collective band, take their final bow.
And with all 4 original members alive and together, this is a perfect way to end a 33 year legacy as one of the loudest, hardest and greatest bands of all time.
Original To The End

The tour, combined with many other marketing campaigns tied to all of it, will be huge. This is going to be the end that other bands will have to really work to top, if they wanted to go out on top and in style.
I’ve been a Motley Crue fan since the very beginning with “Too Fast For Love” and have followed their career and have seen them a few times live already. So having one last time to see them will be awesome.
These are the announced dates for North America. I’m guessing Europe, Japan and other countries are going to be mostly in 2015.
There’s a lot of cities here [including Salt Lake City – WooHoo!] with two solid months of dates in July and August, then picking back up in October.

If they pull this off and really don’t come back and are done after this Final Tour, it will be the ultimate “FUCK YOU!” to all of the other bands that have done numerous farewell dates.
Tickets go on sale this Friday for most of the above dates. Go get your tickets and see The Crue one final time.
Holy shit, that is one brutal tour.
Would be awesome to see them at the Hollywood Bowl.
