Mötley Crüe Announce Retirement And Farewell Tour After A 33 Year Career

American rock band Mötley Crüe have finally called it a day on their legendary career that spans over three decades. The four-piece will be saying goodbye in style as they are set to embark on a 72 date world tour which starts later this year (2014).

Singer Vince Neil, guitarists Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars, and drummer Tommy Lee, famous for hits like 'Girls, Girls, Girls' and 'Kickstart My Heart', made the announcement at a press conference in Hollywood inside Beacher's Madhouse Theater.

The stage displayed headstones for each band member as they told the world that this is the end, and the four rockers are dead set on this been the final tour as they have each signed a contract to never use the name Mötley Crüe again, according to TMZ.

This definitely rules out a reunion tour ever happening in the future then!

This is not a joke as Tommy Lee took to twitter to confirm that this is the very last time they will be on stage together, "This ain't no farewell tour! Those are for bands that lie to their fans and come back in 5-10 years! This is the FINAL tour! It's over!" he posted.

To make this tour even more special, they have acquired the help of another rock icon. Alice Cooper, who is known for hit songs 'School's Out' and 'Poison', will be their opening act.

Tickets for select forthcoming shows go on sale this Friday (Jan 31st) and the rest are expected to be available for purchase on Saturday. Mötley Crüe want to give all their legions of fans the chance to see them perform for one last time, so tickets for the shows will be as low as $15 each.

The band, who were formed in 1981 by bassist Nikki Sixx in Los Angeles, have left a legacy of one of the most notorious heavy metal groups of the 80s, who embodied the rock 'n' roll lifestyle and sold over 75 million albums in their illustrious 33 year career.
