Motley Crue's lead singer Vince Neil has announced that he and bandmates, drummer Tommy Lee, lead guitarist Mick Mars and bass guitarist Nikki Sixx, are drawing out their final tour sometime in spring 2014. Although some might assume that the timing for the farewell tour may have been influenced by Mars' recent health issues, Neil clearly stated that they wanted to quit while they're still ahead.
"We'll do one more time around the world and kinda call it quits," revealed the 52-year-old band vocalist. "It's just that time. We're going out on top. We don't want to be some band that people are like, 'Oh, they're playing a club now,' that kind of band. We still sell out arenas, have stadium stuff and things like that, so let's go out when it's a big deal."
Although they did not rule out the possibility of a reunion after their farewell tour, fans will be well-advised not to pass up on the tour since the reunion may take 5 to 10 years before it comes around. "It's not gonna be like a Kiss farewell to the farewell to the farewell to the farewell tour," Neil assured. "It won't be like that. We're not going to say farewell and then try to get people to come back again in a little while."
While that farewell tour is still in the drawing boards, Motley Crue can be seen in their 12-date Las Vegas residency at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's The Joint, which Neil hyped as what would become their "most dangerous show ever - not danger for us but danger for the crowd" since it would be "over the top, even by Motley standards."
