Mötley Crüe disbanded over four years ago after delivering their “last” gig at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and now they’re back. The Kickstart My Heart rockers formally announced their reunion on Monday afternoon with a fiery video that was uploaded on their website.
Mötley Crüe declares a comeback and cancels their “non-tour” contract
Fans were shocked to learn of the news as Mötley Crüe bandmates Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, and Mick Mars all signed a “cessation of touring” agreement on January 28, 2014. The legally binding contract stated that the four-piece could no longer tour together under the moniker Mötley Crüe after December 31, 2015, unless all four members consented to do so. Rather than merely agreeing to reunite, the glam rock band “best known for violating the rules” found a seemingly on-brand way around the paperwork in the video, destroying it with fire. The band linked their decision to reconnect to the influx of Mötley Crüe fans, or “Crüeheads,” attracted by Jeff Tremaine’s The Dirt, a Netflix movie based on their tale. “So many of my fans have stated how they wish they could have seen the actual Mötley Crüe play live,” said Colson Baker (better known as Machine Gun Kelly), who portrayed Lee in The Dirt.
He continued, “I never believed I’d see the day when this would become a reality.” “However, the fans spoke up, and Mötley Crüe took notice.” Despite the fact that the band has not announced any intentions for a comeback, numerous sites (including Rolling Stone) have reported that they will announce a North American stadium tour soon. Mötley Crüe also encourages followers to sign up for text alerts or their e-mail newsletter for “additional advancements” and “breaking news” on their official website. While many people are enthusiastic about the idea of the all-star rock n’ roll tour, others are condemning the band and labelling its rebirth a “ploy for money.” Sixx, the bassist and co-founder of Mötley Crüe, spoke to Rolling Stone in 2014 about the potential of the band rejoining in the future.
“No amount of money will ever persuade me to do it again because I am so proud of how we are ending it,” he stated. “If somebody ever called any other band members and said, ‘Hey, it’s been ten years, let’s just do ten performances,’ It could never happen unless all four members of the band agreed.” “And if we did agree,” he said, “we’d have so much egg on our faces because of the way we’ve set everything up, even this dialogue right now.” We are so proud of ourselves that it would be enough to put a halt to it.” Mötley Crüe’s return coincides with the 30th anniversary of Dr. Feelgood, the band’s fifth and most successful album (1989). It’s unknown whether the band has any plans to celebrate the album’s release.
