Motley Crue recently announced their farewell run dubbed ‘The Final Tour’ and made it official by signing a binding document that they would not tour again beyond the year 2015. The press conference included the first leg of tour dates and now the band has revealed three more stops including what will be their very last concert in New York City.
The end is nigh for Motley Crue. The band said as much during a Tuesday (Jan. 28) press conference in Los Angeles where they revealed the details of "The Final Tour" (first leg of dates below). In fact, to ensure that these next two years will mark the band's final dates, the members of Crue went through the process of collectively drawing up a 'Cessation of Touring' legal document and signing it to solidify that their upcoming dates will be the final shows and that they won't tour again beyond the year 2015.

The back-and-forth between Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has continued through the weekend. After Bach stated via his Twitter account that he was asked to replace Vince Neil in Motley Crue, Sixx quickly claimed that Bach was never offered the gig. Each side has been attempting to win the argument ever since, and there's a new chapter to report in the Bach vs. Sixx saga.
A short while ago, former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach claimed that he was asked to join Motley Crue as Vince Neil's replacement after the singer was fired in 1992. He even teased that the full story may be revealed in a future autobiography. However, Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has refuted Bach's claims, stating that it's "absolutely not true."
While it’s not uncommon for Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx to share his thoughts and opinions with his fans through social networking, his latest words encompass something that impacts the music industry as a whole – the growing trend of purchasing single songs in lieu of the full album through digital outlets.
Motley Crue are getting ready to rock the City of Sin once again, and to celebrate, the band has teamed up with Loudwire, along with our friends at Ultimate Classic Rock, Noisecreep and GuySpeed, to give away an incredible prize pack.
