Motley Crue Plan To Continue Recording After ‘Final’ Tour

The show must go on (even if the live element does not).

The members of Motley Crue have been doing a lot of press since the late-January announcements of their ‘Final’ tour. Not many of these interviews have made national headlines, but comments from Vince Neil during a recent conversation with 93.3 KDKB in Phoenix has long-time fans shouting at the devil with joy. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Speaking on whether or not the band had any plans for the future aside from their ‘final’ outing, Vince Neil said “Mötley Crüe will still be around, we’re just not gonna …

Motley Crue Sign Legal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, Will Never Play Together After 2015

Yesterday we brought you the news that Mötley Crüe have announced their final tour ever, and ticket-buyers everywhere are wary that the group will inevitably reunite in a few years. All fears can be put aside however, as the band has confirmed at a press conference in LA that they have signed a “cessation of touring agreement.”

The document, most likely a PR stunt to increase ticket sales to their final romp as the Crue, prevents Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Vince Neil, and Tommy Lee from ever reuniting after their final tour ends in 2015. If you’ve ever wanted …

Motley Crue’s ‘Final Tour’ To Feature Support From Alice Cooper

All bad things must come to an end.

There has been talk about Motley Crue throwing in the towel in 2014 for well over six months at this point, and on January 28 the group has planned a press conference in Los Angeles to outline just what that outing will entail. Unfortunately, a new image making the rounds online seems to have revealed one of the tour’s biggest surprises a little sooner than planned.

A new tweet from Eddie Trunk – co-host of the VH1 Classic television program That Metal Show who has a long-running radio show, “Eddie Trunk Rocks” …

Motley Crue Plotting 2014 Farewell Tour

Are you ready to “Shout At The Devil” one last time?

Speaking with RollingStone recently, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil revealed the band is in the early stages of planning a farewell tour for 2014.

“We’ll do one more time around the world and kinda call it quits,” Neil said. “It’s just that time. We’re going out on top. We don’t want to be some band that people are like, ‘Oh, they’re playing a club now,’ that kind of band. We still sell out arenas, have stadium stuff and things like that, so let’s go out when it’s a big …

No One Will Ever Top The Audacity And Ratchetness Of Diplo’s Rider

Page Six, the vaunted gossip section of the New York Post, got a hand on producer Diplo’s rider and boy, is it a doozy. Right up there with the great tour riders of yore from the likes of Mötley Crüe and Van Halen.

For those not in the know, the rider is a document that will outline requests and requirements that a band will need for their tour. This can be light arrangements and stage design schematics or, more infamously, alcohol, drugs, and if you’re Limp Bizkit, light fixtures with dimmer switches.

So what would a …

Tommy Lee’s Summer kit

Motley Crue have always been known for putting on a simply electric live show. Part of this may be due to the fact they rose to fame at the height of “hair metal” (a genre plagued by theatrics), but we think they just like to have a good time.

Recently, the band kicked off their 2011 Summer tour and videos of their performances have already begun circulating online. Click below to watch a fan-shot video of a Tommy Lee’s new (and insanely badass) drum kit and, especially if you love 80′s metal, go to this tour!
