Back in April we discussed the “One Night Only” screening of “KISS Rocks Vegas” and if you didn’t see that post please click HERE so you are up to speed. I bring that one up first because that particular event is happening in a couple of weeks and I am planning on hosting a contest on PiercingMetal that will put a few of my lucky readers into the film screening for free. Now back to my already late news as the other day Fathom Events announced that Motley Crue will also get a screening for “The End” which is their final concert as a band ever. There is a lot to read so check it out below the poster.
The Press Release:
Fathom Events, Live Alliance, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Tenth Street Entertainment Present the Iconic Rock Band’s Epic Final Performance in Select Movie Theaters
NEW YORK – May 11, 2016 – On December 31, 2015, legendary rock icons Mötley Crüe completed their 35-year touring career as a band with a spectacular final concert at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA, just 10 miles from the Sunset Strip where the band’s infamous and decadent career first launched. The band thrilled the sold-out arena with performances of such mega-hits as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Dr. Feelgood.” While not everyone was able to see their Final Show live, Crüe fans can now catch all the action when Fathom Events, Live Alliance, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Tenth Street Entertainment present “Mötley Crüe: The End” in select U.S. cinemas on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. local time for only one night. In addition to the epic concert footage, cinema audiences will be treated to behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s last global tour.
Tickets for “Mötley Crüe: The End” can be purchased beginning Friday, May 13, 2016 online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 250 movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
In January, 2014, Mötley Crüe held a press conference announcing their Final Tour, complete with a “cessation of touring” agreement signed by all members prohibiting any and all future live engagements under the Mötley Crüe name. Mötley Crüe’s two-year concert trek, saw the band — Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums) — perform across five continents (North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia) for a total of more than 164 shows in 72 markets grossing over $100 million. Known for their over-the-top production, Mötley Crüe did not disappoint for their last show ever on New Year’s Eve: from massive, cutting-edge pyro, including Nikki Sixx’s bass guitar spitting fire over 30 ft. into the air, and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum roller coaster, amongst many other spectacular elements. Lead singer, Vince Neil, delivered an emotional, “thank you” speech to the audience, while the band supplied next-level, high-octane fueled energy, ringing in the New Year on stage with thousands of balloons raining down on the crowd. The grand finale of the show included a blow-out performance of their hit single, “Kickstart My Heart” with Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil floating above the audience in far-reaching “cherry-pickers.” Leaving fans in tears, the show concluded with an emotional encore rendition of “Home Sweet Home” from the second stage riser in the center of the audience.
Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said, “We’re excited to bring the opportunity for Mötley Crüe’s legion of supporters to experience their Final Show and relive the magic one more time. Filled with their hard-rock anthems and unforgettable stage presentation, this show is not to be missed.”
“Mötley Crüe: The End” was produced and distributed by Live Alliance and Eagle Rock Entertainment. Christian Lamb directed the concert portion. Jeff Tremaine, creator of the “Jackass” series, directed the documentary segment.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I love these special events and have attended a few of them over the years with the KISS “Symphony” DVD event that feels like 1000 years ago even though it was from 2003. Then there was the not too long ago Judas Priest “Epitaph” screening from 2013 where Rob Halford himself dropped in to surprise the fans. I’m really excited for the upcoming KISS one and now this Motley Crue event since I missed their last tour despite trying to get myself a ticket. I hope that my night remains open when this film happens since otherwise I will have to wait for the DVD that I am sure will follow since Eagle Rock Entertainment is involved. So what do you readers think of the news about this screening? Is it something that you will attend? Did you actually see the final show by the band out in California? Let me know in the comments section below. Oh yeah and watch our contests category just in case there are some cool giveaways for these films. That would be cool wouldn’t it.
