Just one more night, and they're coming off this long and winding road. Forever.
Don't fret, true Crüe fans, the Mötley band of brothers have one more year of touring before they call it quits, and that means one more stop in the 305 before the hairspray can is finally empty and the pants are allowed to hang a little loose.
We all knew this day was coming. It's been a great 34 years, and it's time for Nikki, Tommy, Mick, and Vince to get some R&R. That's rest and relaxation. But only after some rock 'n' roll.
It's the final half of their final tour, kicking off with international dates and coming in for a smooth North American landing this summer. The last Miami show ever goes down at the American Airlines Arena on Wednesday, September 2, but tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Thursday, January 22.
"In some of the cities, we could only reach a fraction of the fans who wanted to come see us play last year because of ticket demand, so we're coming back to those places to bring them our full production including the Crüecifly drum coaster, as well as all pyro and every other bell and whistle," says bassist Nikki Sixx in a press release. "Even despite the overwhelming fan demand, we can only add so many new cities in North America because of our commitment to take the Final Tour global on our final year."
