Motley Crue just wrapped up their 12-date residency at the Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, but will they soon be wrapping up their live shows for good?
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, bassist Nikki Sixx hinted at the possibility of a Motley Crue sendoff in the near future.
“We haven’t decided when that is, we’re talking about that,” Sixx tells the rock mag. “It’ll happen, but we don’t know when it will happen.”
And while Sixx insists that there is no timetable set for a farewell tour, he does say that when they finally do call it quits, it will be genuine.
“The most important thing about a farewell tour is that the band doesn’t lie to the fans, and the band doesn’t tour and then come back years later,” he tells Rolling Stone. “That’s what’s important for us, planning what’s the right time to go out.”
Sixx’s comments also mirror the remarks of frontman Vince Neil from this past summer. While speaking with our very own Gary Graff back in August, the singer explained, “It's just kind of that time. We'll do one more time and then kinda call it quits. 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.' We still sell out arenas, have stadium stuff and things like that.”
It’s not certain when Motley Crue will hang it up for good, but one thing that fans can be sure of is that when they do, it’s going to be in true Crue fashion.
“When that day comes, that’s what I want: one big f**** huge party to celebrate what we’ve done, all the good, all the bad, all the in-between,” Sixx tells Rolling Stone.
