American rock band Motley Crue have announced their split after 33 years together. Upon making this decision, each member signed an agreement stating that they would disband the the group after a final farewell tour, with Alice Cooper as the opening act.
During a press conference in Hollywood, E! reported that the farewell tour will include 70 shows all around the world. Fans will also be happy to hear that tickets for the concerts will start at only $15!
“Other bands have split up over rancor or the inability of people to get along, but this is mutual among all four original members and a peaceful decision to move on to other endeavors and to confirm it with a binding agreement,” attorney Doug Mark said regarding the band’s decision.
Motley Crue, which includes members Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee, has been one of the best-selling rock bands in history, selling more than 75 million albums in total.
“We always had a vision of going out with a big fucking bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members,” said band member Lee, “Our job here is done.”
Since they began in 1981, Motley Crue has produced and sold more than 80 million albums.
