For the inconsolable Mötley Crüe fans that mourned the end of the band after the completion of its last world tour, today we have good news.
Mötley Crüe has just announced that it will be premiering the concert film of its final farewell concert The End in theaters from June 14th via Fathom Events.
The movie was directed by Christian Lamb, and is set around the band’s last show this past New Year’s Eve, which also was the last gig of the tour—and career—during a three-night run at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA; the band’s hometown.
There was a huge media build up before the band announced The Final Tour at their highly anticipated press conference in January 2014 in Hollywood.
During the press conference the members of the band each signed a legal and binding document known as a Cessation of Touring Agreement, which in effect prevents Mötley Crüe from touring beyond 2015.
The band has sold over a 100 million albums worldwide, with 25 million in the US alone. Mötley Crüe came from humble beginnings back in 1981 in Los Angeles, CA, where bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee formed the band, recruiting guitarist Mick Mars and singer Vince Neil. Following the release of the debut single “Too Fast For Love” in November 1981, the band spent the past 30 years going from strength to strength.
