The Mötley Crüe pull off their "end of the tour agreement" and embark on their next year's tour of a stadium in the US with colleagues from hard rock acts Poison and Def Leppard, sources confirm on Rolling Stone . While specific dates and locations have not yet been announced, the three acts will be performed in stadiums across the country.
Mötley Crüe played 158 performances in their 2014/15 final tournaments ending with a show in his hometown at the Los Angeles Forum on December 31, 2015. Prior to the tour, the group claimed to have signed a "tour de cease", which they believe is a binding document that will prevent them from playing again after the tour is over. At that time, the management of the group failed to produce this alleged document, despite repeated requests.
"Legally, we can't play again," says bassist Nicky Shakesx, to the Rolling Stone backstage of a 201
" If someone ever – and I don't believe anyone would do it – would call someone else in the group and they would say, "Hey, it's been 10 years, let's just do 10 shows. A million pop, "this can never happen if all four members of the group disagree," added Shex. "And if we agreed, the way we set it up – including this conversation right now – we would have so much egg on our face. We have so much pride that only this will stop it.
Reports of a possible Mötley Crüe reunion have been circulating over the last few weeks, with the official Mötley Crüe Twitter account sharing a fan petition calling for the group to reunite and add "This is interesting …" later deleted.) Reps for Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard and Poison did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Def Leppard remains one of the most popular tournament acts in rock. This year they stayed largely out of the US, except for their Las Vegas residency, where extreme rarities such as Die Hard the Hunter of 1945 Pyronia Pyromania in 1983 and "Do You Have It" need someone so bad 'from 1992 Adrenaline . In 2018, they played a hugely successful joint headlining tour of American arenas and stadiums with Journey. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.
"We have an Indian summer, and that's because we have this whole thing," says guitarist Phil Colan Rolling Stone on the night of the induction ceremony. "We never really stopped in the 40s. the group is together. We just keep going through the thick and thin, all the bad things, the good things. And I think it shows, and we just enjoy this Indian summer. "
Def Leppard is touring with Poison in 2017 , which was the first outing of the band led by Brett Michaels since 2012. In 2011, they toured with Mötley Crewe and New York dolls k. This was the first time that two of the largest bands of the metal-hair era had gone on the road together, unlike almost every other act of the time, both groups still had their original members.
Mötley Crüe will join a long list of acts that continue to tour after farewell tours, including Kiss, The Who, Black Sabbath, Phil Collins, Ozzy Osbourne, Tina Turner, Cher and LCD Soundsystem.
In February, Sixx reiterated to Rolling Stone that the group had no plans for reform, even if it doubted the decision. "Sometimes I look at my friends, like the Aerosmith and Metallica guys, and it seems to me, 'God damn it, did we retire too soon?' ", He said. "But there will be no one-offs in our future. Maybe we'll just get together and stay in Mick Mars' front room. ”
