Rockers Motley Crue announce retirement tour
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Veteran United States rockers Motley Crue announced their retirement on Tuesday, unveiling plans for one last tour before they thrash into the sunset next year.
The Los Angeles-based band, together for over three decades, will play 72 dates in North America starting in July before continuing the appropriately named Final Tour internationally next year.
"Motley Crue have been and always will be the definitive bad boys of rock and roll," said Rick Franks of tour promoters Live Nation, announcing the tour with Alice Cooper as special guest.
"But behind all those notorious stories is a legendary rock band that has revolutionised heavy metal and created some of the biggest hits in music history," he said.
