Hard glam-rock group Motley Crue are splitting up for good after one final tour with Alice Cooper this year.
The rockers announced the news at a press conference in Hollywood on Tuesday and even signed a legally-binding Cessation Of Touring contract, ending a 33-year career.
Singer Vince Neil told reporters, “We just want to go out on top. Leave a legacy behind. We won’t be doing any more concerts after this. This is the final tour.”
Bassist Nikki Sixx added, “This is a huge celebration for us. It’s going to be a really fantastic tour.”
To mark the ‘death’ of the Girls Girls Girls hitmakers, headstones for bandmates Neil, Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars decorated the press conference stage at Beacher’s Madhouse Theater.
Motley Crue, which formed in 1981, will release one last album, but it won’t be the stars’ usual rock fare. The project will be a country music tribute to the group, featuring covers of their hits by artists including LeAnn Rimes, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert and Cassadee Pope.
The Final Tour will kick off this summer, while a film based on their best-selling 2001 autobiography, The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, will hit theatres in 2015. Bad Grandpa director Jeff Tremaine will take charge of the movie.
