Last Additional North American Dates of Final Tour Revealed Due to Overwhelming Fan Demand

Motley Crue: The Final TourNew York, NY (April 21, 2015) – Iconic rock band Mötley Crüe announced today the details of their final addition of North American dates. The select new shows will take place in October and December as part of the band’s two year Final Tour cycle. Mötley Crüe’s touring career will conclude on New Year’s Eve, December 31 at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles where the band’s career began 34 years ago.

Says bassist Nikki Sixx: “The demand to add more shows in North America has been overwhelming. The fans have spoken so we’ve been trying to find time for more dates in addition to the international dates on the schedule this year. We want to say goodbye to as many fans as possible so we added these shows around the holidays. No better way to spend them than with the people who have supported us over all these years.”

The new North American shows announced today will see the band visit cities such as Little Rock, AR and Lincoln, NE in the US and Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatoon in Canada. All dates will be taking place in arenas exclusively to ensure fans get to experience the full show production of the Final Tour.

Leading-up to today’s announcement, Mötley Crüe gave fans an opportunity to voice their thoughts on what additional cities they would like to see the band play. Fans shared their messages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #DemandtheCrue and could see the progress of the conversation via a heat map that was updated daily at: Motley.com/DemandTheCrue

After thirty-four years performing together, the 2015 leg of the Final Tour includes shows all across the globe. Next up, Mötley Crüe will head over to Australia and New Zealand in May for their last ever shows there. June will see the band saying farewell to the European festival circuit with 3 massive performances at Download (UK), Sweden Rock (Sweden) and Novarock (Austria) Festivals before taking their can’t-miss show back to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico this summer.

Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their two year Final Tour by signing a Cessation Of Touring Agreement at a press conference in Los Angeles in January 2014, solidifying the end of their touring career for December 2015. Since the announcement the band has been touring tirelessly to say goodbye to fans around the world, most recently playing their final shows in Japan.

The 2014 leg of the Final Tour was one of last year’s top grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million. “Mötley Crüe’s Final Tour has been a massive global success and a true testament to the popularity of this legendary rock band,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s Regional President of North American Concerts. “New Year’s Eve 2015 will mark the end of an era in rock history but there’s no doubt that Mötley Crüe’s music will influence generations of artists for years to come.”

Audiences can also expect a high-energy performance from very special guest Alice Cooper, who joined the band for the Final Tour in 2014. He will be tearing up the stage for crowds across North America once again on most 2015 dates. The pairing has been roundly praised as a must-see by fans and media alike.

The band’s exclusive VIP Packages (including opportunities to meet band members, new exclusive merchandise, up-close and personal view of the encore performance like never before in the CRÜESNEST, and more) and Fan Club pre-sales for these dates start 4/22.

Tune In Alert: Nikki Sixx Featured in VH1 Classic Rock Docu-Series “Rock Icons”

VH1 CLASSIC PRESENTS ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY SERIES “ROCK ICONS”
NIKKI SIXX EPISODE PREMIERING SATURDAY MARCH 28 AT 10 PM ET/PT.

(March 16, 2015 – New York, NY) – VH1 Classic presents “ROCK ICONS” an original docu-series profiling the most legendary artists in the history of rock music. VH1 Classic will run their episode centering around Nikki Sixx on Saturday, March 28th at 10pm EST/PST. Get a glimpse of the episode:

VH1 Classic describes the episode… Nikki Sixx- The Architect: The sordid life of Mötley Crüe bass player Nikki Sixx is well-known, thanks to headlines on MTV News and the lurid smash autobiographies The Dirt and The Heroin Diaries. VH1’s “Rock Icons” doesn’t add to the effluent, instead, when we chat with Nikki in his L.A. radio studio, the focus is placed squarely on a different story of Mr. Sixx – that of the musical architect, provocative artist and tireless visionary. Sixx’s contemporaries – including Mötley Crüe singer, Vince Neil and Sixx:A.M. singer & producer James Michael – are speaking about their work with him in the upcoming episode.

“ROCK ICONS” is 10 groundbreaking 30-minute episodes that go past the veil of mystery and beyond the velvet ropes with in-depth, intimate portraits revealing who these rock stars really are, and the road that lead them to their iconic status today. Each episode is jam-packed with exclusive interviews, never-before-seen footage with featured artists and key people who helped shape their exemplary careers. Produced by Banger Films, “ROCK ICONS” brings together elements of celebrated shows such as Classic Albums, Biography, Iconoclasts, and Banger’s own hit show Metal Evolution. “ROCK ICONS” celebrates the innovative artists who defined the history of rock music.

Mötley Crüe: Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, the quartet—Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums)—has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years. In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, three Grammy nominations, four New York Times bestsellers (including the band’s biography, THE DIRT) and countless sold out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans. Motley Crue was the first rock band in history to have completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band continues to remain on the forefront of entertainment reinventing themselves via not only their music but also their mind blowing live shows. In January 2014 the band announced their FINAL TOUR, presented by Dodge in 2014 and produced by Live Nation throughout which will run through New Year’s Eve 2015 and span major cities across the globe. They also announced their bestselling biography, THE DIRT being made into a movie directed by Jeff Tremaine.

VH1 Classic brings you the best metal, rock, soul and pop from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.The channel features the gods of rock- from Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Iron Maiden to Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and Dire Straits – in marquee concerts and music specials, and of course, tons of classic music videos. Recent big events include “National Metal Day” (11.11) and “Metal Evolution,” an 11-part documentary series on the history of metal.
Founded in 2004, Banger Films is a multi-award winning production company specializing in feature-length and TV documentaries and live concert filming. Banger’s catalogue includes the groundbreaking documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey {2006 SXSW Audience choice Award Winner} Iron Maiden: Flight 666 {Winner of 2010 SXSW Audience Choice Award}, Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage {Grammy-nominated 2011}, the smash-hit series Metal Evolution {2011}, and the doc-opera Super Duper Alice Cooper {2014}.

Motley Crue: The Final TourFRIDAY MARCH 13, 2015 – Kickstart My Heart! Due to overwhelming demand, legendary rock icons MÖTLEY CRÜE have confirmed they will perform a second Melbourne show during their highly-anticipated Final Tour of Australia this May.

The Final Tour marks the end of an era for the band. In January 2014, all four original members gathered to sign a binding ‘Cessation Of Touring’ agreement taking effect at the end of 2015 before a press conference in their hometown of Los Angeles and announcing the global two-year Final Tour. A year later, on January 20, 2015 in New York City, the band announced Mötley Crüe’s highly anticipated final live performance of the band to take place at LA’s Staples Centre on New Year’s Eve 2015. The 2014 portion of ‘The Final Tour’ was one of last year’s top grossing US tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million USD.

Australian fans had better brace themselves; the mighty Crüe are bringing their full production with them, including the ground breaking Crüecifly drum coaster, fire spitting bass, over the top pyrotechnics, that have made ‘The Final Tour’ such a wildly successful, memorable experience for hundreds of thousands across the world. “My career focus has been on building artist’s careers – it’s kind of perversely cool to be responsible for ending one,” says Michael Coppel, president & CEO, Live Nation Australasia.

Bassist, Nikki Sixx says of the band’s visit, “We can’t wait to celebrate 34 years of Mötley Crüe with our Australian fans and come over there one last time. We always have an amazing time in Australia and we’re not holding back either… we are bringing along our full production including the Crüecifly drum coaster, as well as the pyro and every other bell and whistle.”

Ensuring they farewell Australia in epic style, the inimitable Alice Cooper will accompany Mötley Crüe on all Australian dates as very special guest. The Hall Of Fame inductee continues to connect with Australian audiences via his broadly acclaimed radio show Nights With Alice Cooper, which airs on a variety of rock networks Australia-wide.

Once coined the most evil rock singer in the world, Alice Cooper recently suggested Crüe let him kill them on stage, “That finishes everything. Four guillotines, floomp! Done!” he enthused. While his villainous vision may not be realised, an equally evil performance is guaranteed as Cooper unleashes his hard rock classics.

Thirty-four years into one of the most tumultuous and staggeringly successful careers in the history of rock music, Mötley Crüe continue to command unwavering allegiance from fans of all ages. The classic line-up of Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars still packs a powerful punch and they’re ready to remind Australian audiences why Mötley Crüe will go down in history as one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Coinciding with the announcement of the final dates and the theme of the Final Tour, the band also released its new single ‘All Bad Things’, which is available for sale digitally here. The single is accompanied by a video clip of highlights spanning the 34-year career of Mötley Crüe which can be found here.

Do not miss one of the tours of 2015 – Mötley Crüe with special guest Alice Cooper!

Tickets for this double down on debauchery will disappear fast. There will be no second chances.

Band Announces Details Of 2015’s Last Leg Of Their “Final Tour,” 34 North American Dates To Mark 34 Years Of Motley Crue

New Single and Video Clip “All Bad Things” Out Today

Motley Crue’s Bestselling “Greatest Hits” Album Available For FREE via Google Play This Week Only

MotleyCrue_LA1bNew York, NY (January 20, 2015) – Iconic rock band Mötley Crüe announced today on Fox and Friends the details of their final performance. This will mark the end of their touring career and will conclude their two year Final Tour cycle at the end of 2015 on New Year’s Eve, December 31 at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles where the band’s career began 34 years ago. The band will be celebrating this week’s big announcement with a performance on The Tonight Show on 1/22.

Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their 2-year Final Tour by signing a Cessation Of Touring Agreement at a press conference in Los Angeles in January 2014, solidifying the end of their Final Tour at the end of 2015.

The 2014 leg of the Final Tour was one of last year’s top grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million. “Mötley Crüe’s Final Tour has been a massive global success and a true testament to the popularity of this legendary rock band,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s Regional President of North American Concerts. “New Year’s Eve 2015 will mark the end of an era in rock history but there’s no doubt that Mötley Crüe’s music will influence generations of artists for years to come.”

After thirty-four years performing together, the 2015 leg of the Final Tour will see the band play Japan in February, then Australia/New Zealand in spring. In June Mötley Crüe will say farewell to the European Festival circuit with 3 massive performances at Download (UK), Sweden Rock (Sweden) and Novarock (Austria) Festivals before taking their can’t-miss show back to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico this summer for 34 final North American shows due to tremendous fan demand.

The North American dates will see the band visit cities such as Chicago, New York, Toronto, Atlanta, Mexico City and will be taking place in arenas exclusively to ensure fans in all cities get to experience the full show production of the Final Tour:

“In some of the cities, we could only reach a fraction of the fans who wanted to come see us play last year because of ticket demand so we’re coming back to those places to bring them our full production including the Crüecifly drum coaster, as well as all pyro and every other bell and whistle. Even despite the overwhelming fan demand we can only add so many new cities in North America because of our commitment to take the Final Tour global on our final year.” says Nikki Sixx (bass).

Audiences can also expect a high-energy performance from very special guest Alice Cooper, who joined the band for the Final Tour in 2014. He will be tearing up the stage for crowds across North America once again. The pairing has been roundly praised as a must-see by fans and media alike.

About MÖTLEY CRÜE
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, the quartet—Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums)—has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years. In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, three Grammy nominations, four New York Times bestsellers (including the band’s biography, THE DIRT) and countless sold out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans. Mötley Crüe was the first rock band in history to have completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band continues to remain on the forefront of entertainment reinventing themselves via not only their music but also their mind blowing live shows featuring never seen before elements, such as Tommy Lee’s drum roller coaster. Mötley Crüe was featured in KIA MOTORS’ award winning 2012 Super Bowl commercial.

About Alice Cooper
Alice Cooper is a true rock icon, having pioneered the use of theatrics and shocking images onstage in concerts from the earliest days of the original band of the same name. Since going solo, he has continued to produce elaborate stage shows providing fans with both shock and rock of the highest caliber. Inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, Alice has toured and recorded continuously, with his most recent album being Welcome 2 My Nightmare. Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original ground breaking, multi-platinum Welcome To My Nightmare album in 1975, the album picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind. Alice’s catalog of hits and anthems, including “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr Nice Guy,” School’s Out,” “Elected,” “Poison,” and others, are included in his current “Raise The Dead” show, which also features his musical tribute to his fallen friends John Lennon, Keith Moon, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. Currently, Alice’s touring band features the three guitar attack of Nita Strauss, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, backed by bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel. Additionally, “Nights With Alice Cooper,” Alice’s nightly radio show, is available in nearly 100 cities in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK. The show features his favorite classic rock songs along with his insider anecdotes about many of the artists.

Dodge Rocks Gas MonkeySeptember 22, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Dodge, Gas Monkey Garage owner Richard Rawlings and Mötley Crüe are inviting all Charger, Challenger and Viper owners to the ultimate party and owners’ experience, the “Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey” car show and concert. The Nov. 1 event at Gas Monkey Live, a new state-of-the-art second Gas Monkey music venue in Dallas, culminates in an exclusive performance by the iconic rock band Mötley Crüe, mid-way through their All Bad Things Must End “Final Tour” of large arenas across North America.

Owners of any classic or newer model Dodge Charger, Challenger and Viper are invited to register at www.dodgerocksgasmonkey.com to show off their vehicles at this one-and-only car show and concert. The event is free, as the $100 vehicle deposit due at registration will be refunded on site. The car show package includes up to two general admission passes to the event and concert at what most likely is the most intimate venue Mötley Crüe has played in decades.

“Motley Crue, Richard Rawlings, Gas Monkey Live and Dodge muscle cars are all awesome by themselves,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands and Head of Fleet Operations, Chrysler Group LLC. “Put all four together with a full day celebration of Dodge’s 100th anniversary and you’ve got an event that will not only make the Dodge brothers proud, but also will be something that Dodge enthusiasts talk about for years. ‘Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey’ is a not-to-miss opportunity to help kick start Dodge’s next 100 years.”

At the car show, Dodge will show the new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – the fastest, most powerful sedan in the world, with an NHRA-certified quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.0 seconds – and the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the fastest and most powerful muscle car ever. Both have a 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® V-8 engine. Additional Dodge and SRT vehicles, such as the 2015 Challenger Scat Pack, Charger R/T, Dart GT, Durango R/T and Viper GTS, also will be on display.

About Richard Rawlings
Richard Rawlings is the star of The Discovery Channel’s international hit series “Fast N’ Loud.” In each episode, motor mastermind Rawlings searches the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at his Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas. Working day and night, he turns the cars into a bad ass ride and takes them to auction.

Aside from his garage and television show, Rawlings is a savvy business man, turning the Gas Monkey Garage into a full-fledged brand, branching out into merchandise and becoming a social media maverick, boasting more than 2 million Facebook likes, 3.4 million YouTube views and 275,000-plus Twitter followers. He also is a restaurateur and owns the wildly successful Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill, which opened a second location in spring 2014. This new venture, Gas Monkey Live, is a state-of-the art music venue across the street from Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill.
