News broke this morning (Nov. 18) that Mötley Crüe would reunite for a tour next year. Now, the band has made it official.
The band posted a video online showing them blowing up the much-publicized “cessation of touring” agreement they signed back in 2014 featuring narration by Machine Gun Kelly. Watch it below.
They also released a statement about their comeback:
“Almost 6 years after signing a Cessation of Touring agreement, the contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together. Following the huge success of their NETFLIX biopic THE DIRT, Mötley Crüe has seen a massive surge in new audience. And the band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true Mötley Crüe-fashion, by literally blowing it up.” Read the entire statement here.
Mötley Crüe embarked on their Final Tour in 2014 and wrapped it up with a hometown show at the Forum in Los Angeles on December 31st, 2015. Prior to the tour, the band signed a “cessation of touring agreement,” which they said was a binding document that would prohibit them from ever playing again after the tour ended.
“Legally, we can’t play again,” bassist Nikki Sixx said to Rolling Stone at a 2014 show in Denver. “The only loophole is if all four band members agreed to do it, we could override our own contract. But we know that will never happen. There are people in this band who will refuse to ever do it again, and you’re talking to one of them. There is no amount of money that would ever make me do it again because I have such pride in how we’re ending it.”
