Motley Crue Bids Farewell

Unfortunately, Motley Crue will not be stopping by the Triangle to say goodbye on their Final Tour, but they will be in nearby Greensboro.  Members of Motley Crue have made the collective and unusual decision to never perform again as a band at the conclusion of this tour.  This was an unexpected move considering they are one of the most successful rock bands of all time selling over 80 million albums during their time together. 

According to Vince Neil via, "We're one of the few bands left out there that has the original members. That's the way we want to go out: the same four guys, leaving on our terms – not leaving because we have to."  The group has signed a formal "Cessation of Touring" stating they will no longer tour as Motley Crue or reunite. 

Alice Cooper will join the tour which reaches the Greensboro Coliseum Complex on Wednesday, October 22.  Tickets go on sale February 1 via Ticketmaster.  If Charlotte is more your flavor, that show will take place at the PNC Music Pavilion on August 19.
