Motley Crue have a farewell tour planned for next year, but singer Vince Neil says the band isn’t breaking up
Motley Crue fans should get some tissue out. Frontman Vince Neil says that the ‘80s rock band will take an indefinite hiatus after embarking on a farewell tour next year.
“I think we’ll start the tour around May…we’ll do one more time around the world and kinda call it quits,” Neil told Billboard. “It’s just that time. We’re going out on top. We still sell out arenas, have stadium stuff and things like that, so let’s go out when it’s a big deal.”
Rest assured that the band’s hiatus doesn’t mean Motley Crue are breaking up. “I’m sure in five, 10 years from now we’ll probably do something again together, if other people’s careers don’t get in the way,” he said. “But it’s not gonna be like a KISS farewell to the farewell to the farewell to the farewell tour. We’re not going to say farewell and then try to get people to come back again in a little while.”
Right now, Motley Crue are prepping for their second Las Vegas residency, which will take place from Sept. 18 to Oct. 6 at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. As for the residency, Neil says to expect the band’s “most dangerous show ever — not danger for us but danger for the crowd.”
