MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e retiring, plans 72 goodbye concerts including Utah stop
MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e swears its next tour is the "Final Tour."
Not only do they swear it, the band's members have signed a "cessation of touring" contract that supposedly guarantees legally that none of them will ever go on the road under the MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e name.
The hair-metal foursome will bring its "Final Tour" to USANA Amphitheatre in West Valley City on Friday, Aug. 1. Alice Cooper will be the opening act.
The members of MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e signed their "cessation of touring" contract earlier this week at a news conference in Los Angeles.
Said drummer Tommy Lee, "We always had a vision of going out with a big f-ing bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members. Our job here is done!"
The band is scheduled to appear Wednesday morning on "CBS This Morning" to talk about the tour plans.
The tour goes through 2015 which is when a movie about the band, "The Dirt" (adapted from the CrÃ¼e's 2002 tell-all book), hits theaters. It's slated to be directed by Jeff Tremaine, who directed "Bad Grandpa" and the "Jackass" films.
General tickets, from $30 to $100, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at Smith's Tix. Members of MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e's fan club get an early chance to buy tickets Wednesday, and VIP packages go on sale Thursday.
