Motley Crue Announces Official Reunion

The scuttlebutt and not-so hushed rumors were circulating for a few days about this and wouldn’t you know it….the flurry of such a seemingly improbable occurrence on Facebook amounted to be true – Motley Crue has declared their reunion. Read their official statement down below and I’ll return at the close.

The Press Release:
Almost 6 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. And 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.

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 31, 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.

Win A Ticket For “Motley Crue: The End” @ AMC Empire 25 On 6/14/2016

Poster - Motley Crue The End - One Night Only - 2016

The Details: Back on 12/31/2015 Motley Crue performed as a band for the very last time during a tour called “The End”. Once it ended the band closed the book on a truly storied career and that was it. No more Motley Crue. The full press release about this event can be viewed HERE. The historic final show will be shown on the big screens at select locations for one-night only thanks to the folks at Fathom Events and even better to announce is that they want a whole bunch of PiercingMetal readers at the screening as well. Read more below on how to participate.

When and Where: Tuesday, June 14th 7:00pm at AMC Empire 25 Theatre (NYC)

To Participate: I probably don’t have to tell you that Motley Crue always delivered the goods when it came to an entertaining show for decades and over the course of my own live concert adventures I think I have seen them about eight times. Of course this is nothing compared to the diehards when it comes to their concert attendances. This contest continues our movie ticket giveaways on PiercingMetal and I’ll keep them similar to our concert ones. With this in mind please just give me three things about the band that you love the most. It can span your favorite albums, songs, meet and greets or past concert experiences. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well to check them out and encourage even more giveaways of this nature. Now since there are likely newbies in the mix that want to be a part of the fun, those people can get me three solid reasons why they must be at the show. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Please be aware that this is for a “single ticket only” and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry.
