Motley Crue Announce Final Tour Dates, Last Ever Concert in Los Angeles

One year after signing their Cessation of Touring Agreement and embarking on a long "Final Tour," Mötley Crüe have revealed the details of their Final Concert: A hometown gig at Los Angeles' Staples Center on December 31st, 2015. The "Dr. Feelgood" rockers also announced the second North American leg of their Final Tour, where special guest Alice Cooper will once again join them on the road as opening act.

Mötley Crüe will head to Japan in February to play their last gigs there before kickstarting the final North American leg, which begins July 22nd in Eugene, Oregon. Because these tour dates represent the last time the Crüe will perform in all these cities, the band have opted for larger venues on this trek to ensure all their fans can attend. The band will perform at Brooklyn's Barclays Arena on August 12th for their last ever New York date.

"In some of the cities, we could only reach a fraction of the fans who wanted to come see us play last year because of ticket demand so we're coming back to those places to bring them our full production including the Crüecifly drum coaster, as well as all pyro and every other bell and whistle," bassist Nikki Sixx said in a statement. "Even despite the overwhelming fan demand we can only add so many new cities in North America because of our commitment to take the Final Tour global on our final year."

As with past tour dates, Mötley Crüe are offering up VIP packages for each show through their website. Local pre-sales for the final Crüe concerts will begin on Thursday, January 22nd, with a public on-sale starting the next day. For the band's last ever concert in Los Angeles, tickets go on sale Saturday, January 24th at 10 a.m. local time. Check out the group's official site for more information.

In addition to the Final Tour dates, the band have also unveiled the video for their new single "All Bad Things." The track will be part of an "ultimate collector's album package" that will be announced in the near future. To celebrate the band's Final Tour, Google Play will also give away the Crüe's Greatest Hits compilation as a free download until January 27th.

Prior to the band's final concert at the Staples Center, Mötley Crüe will perform one last concert in Las Vegas, though details of that show have yet to be announced.
