Motley Crue is legally stopped from further tours

they signed a formal "cessation of touring agreement" saying this is their final tour -- not a so-called farewell tour.

The Girls Girls Girls concert was fantastic....Not sure if I want to see the final tour....Maybe if they come out with some new stuff to go along with their old hits I might bite....

I read about this a few days ago. Nikki Sixx called it a Death Pact. Saying it was their final tour and they weren't going to go out like some of these other rock bands that play well into their 70s and go out on the bottom of music instead of on top.

I like Motley Crue as much as the next guy who loved 80's rock bands, but they aren't exactly on top anymore.

I saw them on tour last year opening up for KISS. I thought the show was good, but I didn't care too much for their new stuff.

Personally, I only liked one of their Albums (Shout at the Devil). They had
a couple of "hits" after that, that I liked, but as a body of work (IMO) they
were at their best about a year after they hit the Road, and never equaled
that success again. Wish them all the best of luck after they hang it up.

It was downhill after Shout but that was a great album.

It was indeed !
For the era that it was released in, it was cutting edge stuff. There were only
a couple of "Glam Rock" groups out at the time (Quiet Riot was the other
big name that I can remember), and Motley Crue kicked it up a notch when
they started recording. .... Never really cared for Too Fast For Love (their
first album), but when I first heard Shout at the Devil, I couldn't play it enough
to get satisfied. Too bad it opened the door for so many "hair bands" that
basically killed off that "Glam Rock" era quickly. There were actually a couple
of those bands that had talent and wrote some good music, but it was all
lumped into that "glitzy Hair Band" genre and soon became the 80s version
of Disco music.

Girls, Girls, Girls .. Theater of Pain, and Dr Feelgood etc... All had a song or two that
was listenable, but the rest of those albums was below average filler. Just
couldn't match the success of Shout at the Devil again.

Shout at the devil was the sheit back in the day. Couple ok tunes after that but most were mass produced pop rock like most of the other glam/hair bands back then. Crue did rock back then though.

I'm sure their guitarist's suffering from a debilitating disease has something to do with this. I guess they wouldn't want to go on the road without him. I'm sure we'll see plenty of them in 'special appearances' at some type of show in the future, just no 'official' touring.

I thought that they were OK when I was in high school in the early 80s. I initially thought of them as some new 'punk-assed kiddie band' kinda like Twisted Sister. I guess I saw the new glam stuff as threats to the established stuff that I was really into. I never bought any of their records and didn't really, REALLY like anything of theirs until I caught the 'Home Sweet Home' video for the first time. Still my favorite by them.

I agree, the new stuff back then was a little discomforting as well. Then I listened to Skid Row, and all that changed.

Hate to say it, but if they feel like they need a legal contract saying that this is really their last tour then maybe their last tour should have been their last tour.

Saw them in '05 when they "reformed" so to speak and started the Carnival of Sins tour, Vince sucked, but the other 3 were great. The entire performance of "Home Sweet Home" in the middle of the show... oh man, goosebumps. That guitar solo was absolutely soulful. Then Tommy's drum solo, and of course... titty cam. Boy.... good times.

Saw them again a few years ago when they were in Greenville with The Last Vegas (they won some Guitar Center contest, really good band), Theory of a Deadman, and Hinder. MUCH better show than '05. Vince sounded a whole lot better and was actually on-key, Tommy and Nikki were on point (Tommy didn't do his big, elaborate drum solo though, which kinda blew), but Mick Mars was on fire. His medicine for that spinal disease was apparently working amazingly well.

In '05 he was an absolute zombie and BARELY moved the entire show, but hit every single note. 2nd time around, he actually walked around, seemed to have a little groove in his playing, and just seemed more relaxed. They cut the lights mid-show, and all of a sudden you heard Mick chunking away at his strings, then leaned into his Crybaby and started playing 'Voodoo Child', it tapered off into a short solo, then he dipped the tremolo and yanked it back up straight into "Kickstart My Heart".

The encore was "Home Sweet Home", and it was the most beautiful rendition of the song I've ever heard. Closest video I've found that came to it was this:

I saw them two weeks apart on the Dr. Feelgood tour and even though I'm wasn't a big fan I thought they put on a really good show in Columbia, but the second one in Augusta was outstanding.

2nd row in Columbia in 2006. They rocked so hard I woke up in jail.

And it pissed me off they didn't play Looks That Kill. Still great show though.
