And FINALLY, It’s OFFICIAL! MOTLEY CRUE is BACK!
Almost six years after signing a “cessation of touring” agreement, the MÖTLEY CRÜE contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together.
The band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true MÖTLEY CRÜE fashion, by literally blowing it up.
According to Rolling Stone, MÖTLEY CRÜE will hit the road next year for a U.S. tour with fellow hard rock acts POISON and DEF LEPPARD.
Sources have confirmed to the magazine that the three acts will perform at stadiums around the country.
The upcoming trek means that the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE have collectively agreed to rip up the “cessation of touring” contract that they signed in 2014 preventing any of them from performing under the CRÜE name in the future.
This lead to mixed reactions from CRUE fans and rock fans in general.
Here are some of the reactions to the reunion:
“Seriously hope both Mick and Vince (for very different reasons, but both being serious health issues) can at the minimum phone in their performances for a long tour such as this. I see travesty written all over this event, but oh well…”
“After five years of not getting big concert paydays, Motley Crue is reuniting for two months of separate dressing rooms, separate hotels and hearing how Def Leppard and Poison sound better than them, followed by several years of counting money.”
“It’s great to see the elderly leaving the nursing home for some fresh air.”
“You tried hard to downplay that rumor without actually giving the surprise away! ? I kept insisting that you all were coming back & I never waivered in my opinion! I love being right, but I’m particularly loving it this time! Hell yeah, Motley is back!!!”
“Mötley crüe have changed since the 80s with responsibilities. Yet there still up for touring to make their fans happy! Instead of complaining about Vince’s voice, it would be nice to show appreciation#realfans⁉️✌cuz at the end of the day, it’s Mötley Crüe weather changed or not.?”
“I’m so excited and welcome back. Awesome news I have heard today, I love your music and I am glad to call myself a fan of Mötley Crüe. Congratulations Mötley Crüe and glad to see y’all back. #MotleyCrue rocks and was having a bad day today but this made my day better, Crüe rocks?”
