Mötley Crüe is hanging up its guitars for good.
Heavy metal band consisting Vince Neil, Nicky Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee have plans to say goodbye with 72 concerts before retiring. The rockers made the announcement at a press conference on Tuesday in Hollywood as they signed a group death pact to break up after The Final Tour.
“This is a huge celebration for us. It’s going to be a really fantastic tour,” said Nicky, according to the band’s official Twitter account, which was posting updates from the announcement.
Vince added by saying, “We just want to go out on top. Leave a legacy behind.”
“This ain’t no farewell tour! Those are for bands that lie to their fans and come back in 5-10 years! This is the FINAL tour! It’s over!” Tommy Lee wrote on his own personal Twitter account.
A Motley Crue tribute album is in the works, as is a big-screen version of the band’s 2002 book, “The Dirt.”
