Almost six years after signing a “Cessation of Touring” agreement, the contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together. Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, Mötley Crüe has seen a massive surge in new audience. 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, watch the destruction below.
After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of Dr. Feelgood, the members of Mötley Crüe parted ways without speaking to each other after their Final Show on December 31st, 2015. Vince, Nikki, Mick and Tommy didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of The Dirt movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years. The fuse was lit.
Since playing Tommy Lee in The Dirt, so many of my fans have said how they wish they could’ve seen the real Mötley Crüe play live,” said Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly)  “I never thought I would see the day when this would become a reality.  But the fans spoke and Mötley Crüe listened!” 
The Dirt currently enjoys an audience score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. And its massive global success earlier this year saw Mötley Crüe’s popularity rush to new highs, catapulting the band’s music back to the top of the worldwide charts with the younger 18-44 demographic now representing 64% of the band’s fanbase. Moreover, in the six months following the release of The Dirt, Mötley Crüe has celebrated a meteoric rise of almost 350% increase in streams of their music across all streaming platforms. However, most of the new fans have never seen any of the legendary live shows that Crüeheads have relished for close to 4 decades.

    I think this is great news, and I look forward to attending a show should it come near my area.

    IMO, the only drawback about the return of the Crue is that it may delay the release of Mick Mars’ solo album, which I’ve been looking forward to hearing…..

      I’ve been looking forward to Mick’s album as well! And I’m excited and looking forward to the return of the Crue as well, but please, please don’t drag that rapper along! I think I speak for most Crueheads when I say, keep it real, keep it ALL rock n’ roll!!

      Are you looking forward to hearing Vince Neil stumble through the songs sounding like he is going through a circumcision without the anesthesia? I’m not. To say that he has “lost it” is to say that he “had it” at some point. He didn’t.

      We know Vince Neil, and we know what to expect, and what not to expect. Nobody ever said Vince was a great vocalist, or even a good one, but even still, Motley wouldn’t be the Crue without Neil.

      I go to a show and it makes this indelible impression to where I really don’t need to go experience the band again unless they really impress me; see Priest, …uhhhh….Kiss is just such a beautiful vibe…and you can’t fake what Paul and Gene do…sorry.
      Thus, I saw Crue in ’85 and that was more than enough for me…it was okaaaay….Sixx whiffing the stage decorations offered up by the females in e audience was the best part of the show…that and watching my girl friend drool over Vince…Mars is/was scrappy, and they have a few good songs….the drummer is the best musicain which really isn’t that great for a band…
      hype, hype, and more hype..

    I really thought the show they performed on their final tour with Alice Cooper was phenomenal. Having seen the Crüe off and on since the 80’s, they were hit and miss. Good shows, great shows, some bad shows. If they come to my city I will go, but I don’t want to travel out of state to see them. Their last show was good enough for me. I’m just glad that 80’s rock is still thriving.

    Don’t ever want to hear Nikki $ixx talk shite about Gene $immon$ cash grabbing again.

      Right! No kidding! AGREED!

    Kind of a newer fan myself being that I wasn’t too much interested in Crue back in the day, still I liked a couple of their songs. Then I saw a few scenes from the movie, listened to some songs from the first two albums and wound up buying The Dirt soundtrack on cd. Like Mick Mars’ tone the best out of all of it, and would listen to what he has coming up. Not interested in seeing them live as it would probably be at this point, another karaoke show.

    I WAS a die-hard Crue Head until this destruction of the agreement. They totally LIED in the press conference.Vince -Oh we will never tour again, this is it LIAR! Nikki – bands are ripping you off, we won’t do that”LIAR! Nikki- No amount of money would ever make me do it again LIAR! I like many die hards knew the conference was for REAL! I feel totally RIPPED OFF!!! I’m not happy about it and I’m not the only one. The Crue have lost a fan since 85! Unfortunately GREED is more important.
