Motley Crue plan to wrap Final Tour at Whisky A Go Go

Motley Crue is planning to return to their roots for the final show of their “Final Tour” in early 2016.

Frontman Vince Neil told the Las Vegas Weekly earlier this week that the band are planning a special show at the legendary Whisky A Go Go where the band got its start on the Sunset Strip in 1981.

“Rumor has it, the last few shows are going to be Vegas and LA, because we wanted to end in 2016 in Los Angeles where we started,” Neil said Monday.

“After New Year’s, we’ll do three nights at one of the arenas in LA,” Neil states. “And then do a special show at the Whiskey a Go Go on our 35th anniversary” which is January 17, 2016.

Drummer Tommy Lee told Rolling Stone that it could be a late night show.

“There’s talk of a couple of nights at Staples or the Forum,” says Lee. “Afterwards, there might be a 1 a.m. show at the Whisky, where we really started this shit. I mean, fuck, we all lived around the corner from that piece of shit club. It would real nice to finish off there.”

“After New Year’s, we’ll do three nights at one of the arenas in LA. And then do a special show at the Whiskey a Go Go on our 35th anniversary.”

Bassist Nikki Sixx already has a vision of how his night will end after the Crue’s final show.

“I dream about getting in my car after the final bow,” he states. “I’m going to drive home, alone, with the radio off. I’m going to drive pass the Whisky, the Roxy, the Rainbow and the Troubadour. I’ll drive up to my house, put the key in the door, walk in, turn around and be like, ‘Where did all the fucking years go?’ Then I’ll close the door and wait for the next chapter.”

In January 2014, the band signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, stating the band will not tour after a lengthy two year cycle. The tour began July 2nd and is set to wrap its first North American run on November 22nd before going overseas after the New Year.

While the band doesn’t plan to return to the studio to record any new music anytime soon, fans can still expect new projects from the notorious rockers before the tour wraps. A film based on the band’s NY Times Best-Selling book The Dirt is in the works and is set to debut in theaters globally sometime in 2015. Big Machine Label Group recently released the country tribute record Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue in August while Sixx confirms a rock tribute is also in the works.
