Just two weeks ago Mötley Crüe announced the details of their final performance ever: the band will end of their touring career on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2015 at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles where the band’s career began 34 years ago.
Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their 2-year Final Tour by signing a Cessation Of Touring Agreement at a press conference in Los Angeles in January 2014. Coinciding with this announcement and the theme of the Final Tour, the band also released its new single “All Bad Things”.
Mötley Crüe are also in the process of putting together the ultimate collector’s album package for the fans to be released later this year which will include the new track, “All Bad Things” amongst many other surprises, details of which will be announced in the near future.
Since 2015 is all about celebrating the legacy of Mötley Crüe, the band and fans from around the world will also be able to share their memories, pictures, thoughts and stories of 34 years of Mötley Crüe online at www.motley.com using #RipMotleyCrue.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, the quartet—Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums)—has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years. In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, three Grammy nominations, four New York Times bestsellers (including the band’s biography, THE DIRT) and countless sold out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans.
Some of their best-known songs include “Home Sweet Home”, “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Dr. Feelgood”. Mötley Crüe was the first rock band in history to have completed an sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Alice Cooper is a true rock icon, having pioneered the use of theatrics and shocking images onstage in concerts from the earliest days of the original band of the same name. Inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, Alice has toured and recorded continuously, with his most recent album being Welcome 2 My Nightmare. Alice’s catalog of hits and anthems, including “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr Nice Guy,” School’s Out,” “Elected,” “Poison,” and others, are included in his current “Raise The Dead” show, which also features his musical tribute to his fallen friends John Lennon, Keith Moon, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix.
Currently, Alice’s touring band features the three guitar attack of Nita Strauss, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, backed by bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel. Additionally, “Nights With Alice Cooper,” Alice’s nightly radio show, is available in nearly 100 cities in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK.
The 2015 California Mid-State Fair runs July 22 through August 2. This year’s theme is “Puttin’ On The Gritz!”
