MOTLEY CRUE announced The Final Tour and the band's ultimate retirement, solidified when the band signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, effective at the end of 2015, in front of global media in Los Angeles on Jan. 28. Celebrating the announcement of The Final Tour, the band performed on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" later that night and appeared on "CBS This Morning" on Jan. 29.

With over 80 million albums sold, MOTLEY CRUE has sold out countless tours across the globe and spawned more than 2,500 MOTLEY CRUE branded items, sold in over 30 countries. MOTLEY CRUE has proven they know how to make a lasting impression and this tour will be no different. Fans can expect to hear the catalogue of their chart-topping hits and look forward to mind-blowing, unparalleled live production. "When it comes to putting together a new show, we always push the envelope and that's part of Motley Crue's legacy," explains Nikki Sixx (bass). "As far as letting on to what we're doing, that would be like finding out what you're getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we'd like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch The Final Tour."

The Final Tour, presented by Dodge and produced by Live Nation, will kick off in North America on July 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich. and reach 73 markets before hitting international territories in 2015. To Live Nation, MOTLEY CRUE tours are not only box office successes but artistically have set the bar for production and entertainment value. "There's no arguing that Motley Crue have been and always will be the definitive bad boys of rock 'n' roll," says Rick Franks, Live Nation's regional president of North America concerts. "But behind all those notorious stories is a legendary rock band that has revolutionized heavy metal and created some of the biggest hits in music history. They are a hugely successful global brand and a touring powerhouse. Everyone at Live Nation has a tremendous amount of respect for these hard-working and extremely talented gentlemen. The music industry will never have another Motley Crue."  

The Dodge Brothers were a notorious duo, so it seemed only natural to partner with the World's Most Notorious Rock Band. "Whenever I talk to people about Motley Crue, the common thread is how cool and relevant the band remains, even after 33 years," said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO, Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "This irreverent 'staying power' resonates deeply with the Dodge brand as we turn the corner on our 100-year anniversary. What better way to celebrate the band's final tour and the 25th anniversary of Kickstart My Heart than to do it together?"

Fans can look forward to very special guest ALICE COOPER joining MOTLEY CRUE for an incredible package; Alice invented the rock 'n' roll genre and MOTLEY CRUE put steroids in it! "Real hard rock bands are hard to find these days," said Alice. "Motley has always gone on stage with one attitude and that's to blow the audience away. That's exactly how we do it. Putting Motley Crue and Alice Cooper together is going to be just what this summer really NEEDS. We're going to go out there and tear it up, and I can't wait to see Motley on stage. Motley Crue and Alice Cooper—a match made in...Armageddon?"

As documented in the Cessation Of Touring Agreement the band signed at the Jan. 28 press conference, the band will not tour after this final tour. Band attorney Doug Mark of Mark Music & Media Law explains: "Other bands have split up over rancor or the inability of people to get along, but this is mutual among all four original members and a peaceful decision to move on to other endeavors and to confirm it with a binding agreement." Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars will go their separate ways after the lengthy two-year touring cycle. Tommy Lee (drums) explains: "Everything must come to an end!! We always had a vision of going out with a big f***king bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members! Our job here is done!!!" Of the band's tumultuous history, Mick Mars (guitar) adds: "(It has been) more drama than 'General Hospital;' it keeps 'em watchin' and they keep comin' back." Vocalist, Vince Neil says of the Finality of the tour: "I'll miss playing with the guys, but I won't quit playing rock 'n' roll!! I feel there are a lot of great opportunities and exciting projects after Motley."

About Alice Cooper
Alice Cooper is a true rock icon, having pioneered the use of theatrics and shocking images onstage in concerts from the earliest days of the original band of the same name.   Since going solo, he has continued to produce elaborate stage shows providing fans with both shock and rock of the highest caliber.  Inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, Alice has toured and recorded continuously, with his most recent album being Welcome 2 My Nightmare.  Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original ground breaking, multi-platinum Welcome To My Nightmare album in 1975, the album picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.   Alice's catalog of hits and anthems, including "I'm Eighteen," "No More Mr Nice Guy," School's Out," "Elected," "Poison," and others, are included in his current "Raise The Dead" show, which also features his musical tribute to his fallen friends John Lennon, Keith Moon, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix.  Currently, Alice's touring band features the three guitar attack of Orianthi, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, backed by bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel.   Additionally, "Nights With Alice Cooper," Alice's nightly radio show, is available in nearly 100 cities in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK.  The show features his favorite classic rock songs along with his insider anecdotes about many of the artists.
