I en nylig intervju med RollingStone.com frågades MÖTLEY CRÜEs basist Nikki Sixx om bandets eventuella avskedsturné, vilken sångaren Vince Neil tidigare har sagt kan börja så tidigt som i maj 2014.

“We haven’t decided when that is, we’re talking about that,” sa Sixx. “It’ll happen, but we don’t know when it will happen.


The most important thing about a farewell tour is that the band doesn’t lie to the fans, and the band doesn’t tour and then come back years later. That’s what’s important for us, planning what’s the right time to go out.

We have a great fan base, we have original fans all the way down to teenagers, and we really feel grateful to that and we continue to reinvent ourselves over the years.

People always tried to make us an unimportant part of rock history and that doesn’t really affect us because it’s always been that way. Critics have always snubbed us.

The thing about MÖTLEY CRÜE is we are a people’s band, we don’t kiss ass to the industry. We believe artists should be in control of their own destiny and that destiny also includes when it should be done so that their fans can forever be proud. It’s not one or two band members up there dragging the band name around. It’s a band for a reason, it works for a reason. We’re really proud of that. I think that’s why, when the day does come, we want to be proud of our band and what we’ve achieved.”

Han fortsatte: “Someone said to me the other day, ‘Won’t you be sad?’ I go, ‘No, I’d be sad if we were playing half-full theaters and only two band members were in the band.’ That would be sad. Sad is not taking your final bow in Los Angeles all together as four brothers.

I talked to a friend the other day and they were talking about a friend of theirs who passed away. And after the funeral, they had this huge party and everybody was celebrating, drinking and telling stories about this guy and how fun he was and how much joy he gave everybody in life. That’s how I feel about MÖTLEY CRÜE.

When that day comes, that’s what I want: one big fucking huge party to celebrate what we’ve done, all the good, all the bad, all the in-between. There it is, one big party, one final bow. It’s gonna be fucking rad, but we’re not there yet. Right now, we got three shows left in Vegas and then we’re gonna start looking forward to when we tour next.”

På frågan om det kan bli flera turnéer, eller om nästa kommer att bli den absolut slutgiltiga, sa Sixx: “We don’t know right now. We said as brothers and a band, that’s something we plan on doing sometime in the future, but we’re not there yet, so we don’t have any idea when. We’re not sitting down right now planning on that.”

I den nyliga intervjun med Billboard.com sa Vince Neil såhär om MÖTLEY CRÜEs kommande avskedsturné; “I think we’ll start the tour around May — I’m just kind of guessing on that, but in the spring of ’14 — and we’ll do one more time around the world and kinda call it quits. It’s just that time. We’re going out on top. We don’t want to be some band that people are like, ‘Oh, they’re playing a club now,’ that kind of band. We still sell out arenas, have stadium stuff and things like that, so let’s go out when it’s a big deal.”

Vince insisterade även att MÖTLEY CRÜEs pensionering kommer att vara “på riktigt” och inte att bandet kommer hålla flera avskedsturnéer, som vissa andra band gör.

“There are some bands that are on their fifth and sixth farewell tour,” sa Vince till KVVU Fox 5. “Nah, we’re not gonna do that. I’m not gonna say we would never get back together and do some concerts or something — we wanna keep that open — but we’re not gonna do a farewell tour and then a couple of years later go, ‘Ah, never mind.'”
