Australian Dates Announced for “The Final Tour”

AUSTRALIA’S LAST CHANCE TO SEE THE BAND LIVE!

Motley Crue: The Final TourTHURSDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2015 – Legendary rock icons MÖTLEY CRÜE have, at last, confirmed dates for the highly anticipated Australian leg of their Final Tour, bringing along shock-rocker ALICE COOPER as very special guest.

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. Tickets will go on sale at 11am on Wednesday March 4.

Telstra Thanks is bringing an exciting pre-sale just for Telstra customers from midday Thursday February 26 until 5pm Sunday March 1. For more information and to register, visit: telstra.com/music

Bassist, Nikki Sixx says of the band’s visit, “We’re truly excited to come to New Zealand with the Final Tour and celebrate 34 years of Mötley Crüe with our fans in Auckland. It’s the Final Tour but it’s not a farewell because our music will live on long after we’ve stopped touring. We can’t wait to see everyone out there in May.”

Motley Crue Reveals Date of Final Show + New Song/Video

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.

The band’s exclusive VIP Packages (including opportunities to meet band members, exclusive merchandise and more) and Fan Club pre-sales for these dates start tomorrow, Wednesday 1/21 at 10am est, with a special Citicard member pre-sale beginning at 5pm est the same day.

Coinciding with today’s announcement and the theme of the Final Tour, the band also released its new single “All Bad Things” this morning which is available for sale digitally here: http://smarturl.it/MC_AllBadThings. The single is accompanied by a video clip of highlights of Mötley Crüe’s 34-year career which premiered today on The Tonight Show’s blog – http://fallontonight.tumblr.com/ to preview the band’s national TV appearance on the show this Thursday.

To give back to the fans for their support over the years, Mötley Crüe will give away their best selling GREATEST HITS album for free in partnership with Google Play for one week only beginning at 12PM PST today.

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.

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 360 drum roller coaster.

The band announced their FINAL TOUR earlier this year and that the movie of their best selling biography, THE DIRT, will be hitting theaters globally in 2015.

PRESS RELEASE: THE DIRT, THE CLASSIC MEMOIR BY MÖTLEY CRÜE AND NEIL STRAUSS, AVAILABLE AS AN E-BOOK FOR FIRST TIME

The DirtDey Street, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, will publish the classic rock memoir The Dirt, by the members of Mötley Crüe and bestselling co-author Neil Strauss, in e-book format for the first time today, July 1, 2014. The e-book is available here: Get “The Dirt” e-book. First published in 2001, The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band is one of the most outrageous rock and roll books of all time—a nonstop parade of sex, drugs, and rock and roll by one of the most iconic rock bands in history. Today, the book has nearly 750,000 copies in print—confirming Q magazine’s verdict that the book was “the most unputdownable rock book of the year, or, possibly, any year.”

In January 2014, Mötley Crüe announced a history-making Final tour through the summer. This tell-all autobiography—“an unabashed, unrepentant look at the way rock ‘n’ roll used to be lived” (Maxim)—explores the rebellious career and fractious partnership of four of the most influential icons of rock history: Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee. Together, as Mötley Crüe, they became the voice of a barely pubescent Generation X, the anointed high priests of backward-masking pentagram rock, pioneers of Hollywood glam, and the creators of MTV’s first “power ballad.” Their sex lives claimed celebrities from Heather Locklear to Pamela Anderson to Donna D’Errico. Their scuffles involved everyone from Axl Rose to 2LiveCrew. Their hobbies have included collecting automatic weapons, cultivating long arrest records, pushing the envelope of conceivable drug abuse, and dreaming up backstage antics that would make Ozzy Osbourne blanch with modesty. As the New York Times summarized, “open it anywhere and find a story to remember.” Provocatively written and brilliantly designed, and hailed as “the wildest rock ‘n’ roll story ever told” (San Antonio Express-News), this book includes more than 80 photos for the most exciting and insightful look ever into the Crüe.

The film version of The Dirt is set to debut in theaters globally in 2015, coinciding with the band’s Final Tour. Jeff Tremaine (Bad Grandpa), has signed on to direct the opus. Tremaine’s intention is to make, not just a great movie about a band, but a great movie about four misfits who, despite themselves and everyone else, band together to overcome the odds and change the history of Rock & Roll. “The Dirt’ is a movie I’ve wanted to make ever since I read the book in 2002,” says Tremaine. “I relate to the story on so many levels; my whole professional career has been about boys behaving badly, so I have a real connection to the material. It’s awesome to be working with the band at such an exciting time in Motley Crue’s history.” The film will be produced by the members of MÖTLEY CRÜE, Rick Yorn, Julie Yorn, Erik Olsen and 10th Street Entertainment.

“Without a doubt, [The Dirt] is the most detailed account of the awesome pleasures and perils of rock & roll stardom I have ever read. It is completely compelling, and utterly revolting.”
—Joe Levy, Rolling Stone

“The Dirt is the singularly greatest sex/drugs/rock reading experience of our age. It’s one of the all-time great rock bios . . . a good dirty rocking read.”
—Charles Bock, NPR

“[A] masterpiece . . . a wind-in-the-face joyride . . . one of the best rock biographies ever written.”
—LitReactor

The first leg of Motley Crue’s FINAL TOUR kicks off on Wednesday, July 2nd in Grand Rapids, MI and will run throughout the US for 72 dates this summer. Anticipation is at an all-time high for this final run of dates – with many of the stops already sold out.

Fast Company: 5 Brilliant Business Lessons from Motley Crue

“Looking to Mötley Crüe for advice about business might sound a little like asking Warren Buffett for tips on headbanging. Are there really lessons to be learned from the band who, in their 1980s heyday, were as well known for their over-the-top debauchery as for their music? “Looking from the outside,” says bassist and co-founder Nikki Sixx, “I totally understand why people would think there’s no way this band should even still be here.”

Not only is Mötley Crüe still around, they have continued to thrive even as the music industry has contracted around them and other metal bands they came up with have either become nostalgia acts or simply disappeared. Since their founding in 1981, the band–singer Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, drummer Tommy Lee, and Sixx–has sold more than 75 million records, cranking out hits like “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Kickstart My Heart,” and “Home Sweet Home” despite weathering drug and alcohol addiction, internal strife, arrests, and imprisonment. As the group prepares to wrap up its legendary career with a final worldwide tour before disbanding for good, Sixx and the band’s longtime manager, Allen Kovac, spoke to Fast Company about the business smarts that have kept Crüe cruising for more than 30 years.” – Fast Company
