US rock icons Mötley Crüe have dropped a massive hint that they could be about to announce their farewell world tour.
Crüe have revealed details of an LA event, expected to be a press conference, which is heavily rumoured to confirm dates for a farewell world tour. The event, titled RIP: All Bad Things Must Come To An End, takes place on January 28.
The farewell tour, which is expected to last a year or two, will see the band travel the world one final time. Crüe drummer Tommy Lee recently spoke out about the band's future plans, confirming that their next global trek will be the last, sighting guitarist Mick Mars' health struggles as a major reason for calling it a day.
“The farewell tour is next. This will be it. Our guitar player, Mick, he has a spinal disease that’s slowly fusing his vertebrae together. It’s one of those things that’s treatable, but not curable. So it’s just progressively getting really worse and it’s painful for him, so he doesn’t wanna tour much longer. I can’t say I blame him… The last thing we ever wanna do is go out running on two cylinders with some hired guy playing guitar; that’s just wack. So we wanna go out with one big hurrah with the original guys and be done with it."
While Crüe will keep the option of holding one-off reunion shows open, the band have insisted that their farewell tour will be for "real" and they won't hold multiple farewell tours.
