Motley Crue officially calling it quits ... well, after farewell tour



Motley Crue is officially retiring after 30-some years of shouting at the devil. The band announced Tuesday that it's calling it quits at a press conference in Los Angeles. The members signed a "Cessation Of Touring Agreement," effective at the end of 2015. The band will also appear tonight on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live and again on Wednesday morning on CBS This Morning.

Of course, there's still the matter of one more tour, which begins on July 2 in Grand Rapids and includes dates through November. So far only two Florida dates have been announced: Oct. 17 in Hollywood and Oct. 19 in Jacksonville. According to TMZ, Alice Cooper will open for the Crue on tour.

"When it comes to putting together a new show we always push the envelope and that’s part of Motley Crue’s legacy," Nikki Sixx said in a statement posted on the band's official website. "As far as letting on to what we’re doing, that would be like finding out what you’re getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we’d like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch the Final Tour."
