Nikki Sixx Says Goodbye for Good: Inside the End of Motley Crue

“Last week, Motley Crüe called it quits.

After over 30 years of grinding guitars, wild stage shows and world-class debauchery, the Crüe — who made nine albums that sold a staggering 80 million copies — decided to end it all. Being the Crüe, though, they’re going out in style. The band —Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars — signed a legally binding Cessation of Touring Agreement in front of reporters that prohibits future, unauthorized performances, and prevents any of the four members from touring under the band name.

But before they go, there’s one last 72-city North American tour to complete, and they’ve enlisted veteran rocker Alice Cooper to open the band’s final string of shows.“When it comes to putting together a new show, we always push the envelope, and that’s part of Motley Crue’s legacy,” bandmember Nikki Sixx said.”
