Well, looks as if one of rock’s top acts is finally calling it quits after over three decades in the limelight. Although Motley Crue will be kicking off an extensive Canadian tour on Saturday, Vince Neil spoke with the QMI Agency about what lies ahead for the band in their final years.
"We're going to put out some new music next year and then it's our farewell tour - we'll do the world one more time and then call it a day," said Neil. “Our farewell tour (will be like) 2014 or '15. Tours last about two years. So to finish the world, you've got to do the US, Canada, Europe, Asia ... it takes some time."
As for the reason the band are calling it quits after more than 30 years and 80 million albums sold, Vince says, "It's time, that's really it. Do you want to go out on top rather than fading away? And that's it. You know, I'll continue to sing Motley with my solo band and put out solo records and stuff and (bassist) Nikki (Sixx)'s got his radio show and (drummer) Tommy (Lee) wants to be a deejay, and so we'll see what happens."
Looks as though there will still be plenty of opportunities to catch the band as earlier this month, the Crue announced their return to Las Vegas this fall for another residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino; they’ll play 12-shows between September 18 and October 6.
