The band’s 2015 New Year’s Eve show comes to UHD

Mercury Studios has set Mötley Crüe: The End – Live in Los Angeles for 4K UHD Blu-ray on April 22nd globally with a North American release to be announced. The visually stunning concert was captured with 30 cameras in Ultra HD 4K on the band’s final night of their Final Tour.

On December 31, 2015, legendary rockers Mötley Crüe completed their 35-year touring career as a band with a spectacular final concert at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA, just ten miles from the Sunset Strip where the band’s infamous and decadent career first launched. The band thrilled the sold-out arena with performances of such mega-hits as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Home Sweet Home,” and “Dr. Feelgood.”

In January 2014, Mötley Crüe signed a binding legal document known as a “cessation of touring” agreement, preventing them from touring under the band’s name past the year 2015 — the first of its kind. This was followed by their two-year Final Tour, performing across North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia, with 164 shows in 72 markets and grossing over $100 million.

Known for their over-the-top production, Mötley Crüe did not disappoint for what was expected to be their last show ever on New Year’s Eve 2015. From massive, cutting-edge pyro, including Nikki Sixx’s bass guitar spitting fire over 30 feet into the air, and Tommy Lee’s Crüecifly drum roller coaster, amongst many other spectacular elements, the concert gives fans the “Wild Side” of the group.

Frontman Vince Neil delivered an emotional, “Thank you” speech to the audience, while the band supplied next-level, high-octane fueled energy, ringing in the New Year on stage with thousands of balloons raining down on the crowd. The grand finale of the show included a blow-out performance of their hit single, “Kickstart My Heart” with Sixx and Neil floating above the audience in far-reaching “cherry-pickers.” Leaving fans in tears, the show concluded with an emotional encore rendition of “Home Sweet Home” from the second stage riser in the center of the audience.

The concert was initially released as a CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray in 2016. It was also released later as a standalone 3 LP vinyl.

Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, Mötley Crüe saw a massive surge in new audience with fans around the world demanding the band tour again. This led to the band members reuniting and announcing that “Mötley Crüe is back” in 2019 and saw the group launch the joint co-headlining The Stadium Tour with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in 2022, following a two-year delay due to the pandemic.
