Mötley Crüe Announce Last Ever European Tour Dates

One of the most legendary and iconic rock bands to ever grace the world of music, Mötley Crüe, have made their last tour announcement ever today when they revealed their Final European Tour will hit the Genting Arena, Birmingham in November. This is part of the band’s 2-year ‘Final Tour’ cycle, which culminates in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles for their final show ever in December.

 

 

At a press conference in London hosted by Matt Everitt of BBC6 Music today, the band gathered in front of European media from 12 countries and announced the tour dates demanded by none other than their fans. Leading up to today’s announcement, Mötley Crüe gave the fans an opportunity to voice their thoughts and vote on which European cities they would like to see the band play. An overwhelming 500,000 fans in 18 European countries shared their messages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #DemandtheCrue and could track the progress of the conversation via a heat map that was updated daily at: Motley.com/DemandTheCrue

The November tour dates will be the ultimate farewell to the European continent as Mötley Crüe will be bringing over their biggest production and pyro show to date including Nikki Sixx's flame throwing bass and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum coaster, as well as the “Crüesnest” where fans can sit with the band up close and personal during the grand finale of the show. Check out highlights from Mötley Crüe’s show here:

Speaking on their final ever European tour announcement, bassist Nikki Sixx said:

We're excited to come back to Europe with all the songs, bells and whistles and say goodbye during The Final Tour to the greatest fans in rock n roll.

After thirty-four years performing together, the 2015 leg of the Final Tour includes shows across the globe. Mötley Crüe have just finished a tour of Australia and New Zealand in May for their last ever shows there after concluding their final Japan run this past February. The band are currently saying farewell to the European festival circuit having just laid waste to Sweden Rock Festival this past weekend and with two massive performances coming up this weekend at Novarock Festival in Austria and at Download in the UK before taking their can’t-miss show back to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

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.

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 already joined the band for the Final Tour in 2014. The pairing has been roundly praised as a must-see by fans and media alike.
