It seems the boys of Motley Crue are finally retiring their “wild sides” and ready to collect on their Social Security. On January 28th in Los Angeles , Motley Crue will apparently be announcing their farewell officially at an event with the tagline : “RIP: All Bad Things Must Come To An End.”
This isn’t new news, it just hasn’t been official news, but last summer Vince Neil said the news was “definitely for real” and that they wanted to “go out on top.”
” We don’t want to be one of those bands that people are like, ‘Oh, they’re playing a … little club now. We still sell out arenas and do stadium shows and stuff like that, and that’s how we want to be remembered,” said Neil. “It’s just time…Mick’s (Mars) health is not that good, and touring is tough on him. I’m sure in five, 10 years’ time we’ll probably do something together again, but it’s not gonna be like a KISS farewell to the farewell to the farewell tour. We’re not gonna be like that.”
“Someone said to me the other day, ‘Won’t you be sad?’ I go, ‘No, I’d be sad if we were playing half-full theaters and only two band members were in the band.’ That would be sad,” explained Nikki Sixx in an interview with Rolling Stone later in 2013. “Sad is not taking your final bow in Los Angeles all together as four brothers. I talked to a friend the other day and they were talking about a friend of theirs who passed away. And after the funeral, they had this huge party and everybody was celebrating, drinking and telling stories about this guy and how fun he was and how much joy he gave everybody in life. That’s how I feel about Motley Crue. When that day comes, that’s what I want: one big f**king huge party to celebrate what we’ve done, all the good, all the bad, all the in-between. There it is, one big party, one final bow.”
We doubt Motley Crue’s party is every going to stop.
