    Mötley Crüe are going out on top. They will embark on a final tour and then retire. This is the last tour...ever. No reunion tours... or so they say!

    What will rock fans do without the Crüe? Well, we'll worry about that later. For now, make plans to see them before they retire.

    The Final Tour presented by Dodge and produced by Live Nation will kick off in North America on July 2 in Grand Rapids, Michigan and reach 72 markets before hitting international territories in 2015.

    Fans can look forward to shock rock legend Alice Cooper joining the band for an incredible package.

    "Real hard rock bands are hard to find these days," said Cooper. "Mötley has always gone on stage with one attitude and that's to blow the audience away. That's exactly how we do it. Putting Mötley Crüe 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 Mötley on stage. Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper? A match made in... Armageddon?"

    As documented in the Cessation of Touring Agreement the band signed at the press conference yesterday (January 28), the band will not tour after this Final Tour.

    Band Attorney Doug Mark of Mark Music & Media Law explained, "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.

    Drummer Lee explained, "Everything must come to an end!! We always had a vision of going out with a big fucking bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with 1 or 2 original band members! Our job here is done!!!"

    Of the band's tumultuous history, guitarist Mars said, "It has been more drama than ‘General Hospital’ - it keeps 'em watchin' and they keep comin' back."

    "I'll miss playing with the guys but I won't quit playing rock and roll!! I feel there are a lot of great opportunities and exciting projects after Mötley," said Neil.

    And that's that.
