Mötley Crüe retiring, plans 72 goodbye concerts including Utah stop

Mötley Crüe 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 Mötley Crüe 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 Mötley Crüe 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 Crüe’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 Mötley Crüe’s fan club get an early chance to buy tickets Wednesday, and VIP packages go on sale Thursday.
