Mötley Crüe Kick Off Their European Farewell Tour!
In what will no doubt go down as one of the most momentous events in rock history, Mötley Crüe, kicked off their last ever European tour in Newcastle, UK last night (Monday November 2nd). The sold out gig treated fans to the kind of show only Mötley Crüe knows how to deliver.
Featuring hit after hit and a spectacle – one of a kind production, Newcastle was not disappointed. Mötley Crüe brought their best production ever to Europe and unleashed “The Crüecifly” for the first and last time in Europe. “The Crücifly” is 155 feet of roller coaster track above the crowd, which transports drummer Tommy Lee and his kit forward, backwards, and even flips him upside down to the other side of the arena. Bassist, Nikki Sixx, wielded a “flamethrower bass” weighing in at at 100 pounds. The bass is attached to a fuel source that allowed Sixx to shoot flames 30 feet into the air!
After thirty-four years performing together, the 2015 leg of Final Tour has included shows all across the globe. Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their two year Final Tour by signing a ‘Cessation Of Touring Agreement’ at a press conference in Los Angeles, CA in January 2014, solidifying the end of their distinguished touring career on December 31, 2015.
