TBO- Looks like the party’s over — almost. Motley Crue, the hard-rocking, hard-living glam metal outfit that sold nearly 80 million albums en route to becoming the poster boys for rock excess and debauchery, are retiring. The band plans to say goodbye with a 72-date farewell tour, including one last stop in Tampa at the MidFlorida Amphitheatre on Aug. 17. “We want to go out with the four founding members of Motley Crue and go out on top,” said lead singer Vince Neil at a news conference in Hollywood, Calif., announcing the tour. “We want to leave a legacy,” added guitarist Nikki Sixx. “We want to have some dignity.” The band members have signed a legal agreement promising not to perform as Motley Crue after 2015. Tickets for the “All Bad Things Must Come to an End Tour” go on sale Friday through livenation.com. Reserved seats will cost $119, $79, $49 or $39. Lawn tickets will be on sale for $20 through Sunday before going up to $25. Alice Cooper will tour with the group. A Motley Crue tribute album is in the works, as is a big-screen version of the band’s 2002 book, “The Dirt.”

Strip clubs EVERYWHERE owe these guys for this

Well it had to happen sometime and I’m glad it’s happening like this. I would much rather a band do one last hurrah, and make it legal that they can’t keep coming back ala Brett Favre, and just rock everyone’s fucking faces off. Also really like the fact that tickets are not that expensive. 120 bucks for the highest priced ticket is sweet and if I can get shithoused and roll around in the lawn for $20 I’m all in. Crue has to be one of the bands with the coolest reputations in rock history, both as a group and as individuals. If you haven’t read the book ‘The Dirt’ you really need to before they ever put it movie out because it is really bad ass. But it always makes me question how Nikki can say they need ‘some dignity’…umm you do know who you are right buddy? You’re Nikki Sixx and Motley Crue. You guys would sit in circles and have your actual GFs blow everyone in the house. Ozzy Osbourne challenged Nikki to a cocaine snorting contest which ended with licking piss off the street. God damn Aerosmith told you guys you had a drinking/drug problem. Dignity is long gone my friend, but that’s what makes you guys Crue. I will for sure be at this show and as sad as I am that they are finally ending thing, doing it with a ‘death clause’ is the best way to do it.
