Nikki Sixx prepares for Motley's farewell tour

“It’s been a fucking crazy rollercoaster ride deciding to end Motley Crue's career after over 3 decades and go out on top,” writes Sixx. “The preparation started over a year ago and is just ending with the final assembly of the biggest show we've ever had. I would say this show reflects our love of being extremist…” “The new song, ‘All Bad Things’, sounds great in the set alongside the classics and deep fan favorites,” he continued. “The vibe of the tour is really fucking positive…It’s a celebration and the band is tighter than we've been in years.” “It’s also an honor to have Alice Cooper as our support act on this run,” says the bassist. “I can't imagine a better set of songs from the beginning of Alice to the final bow of Crue. Opening night is tomorrow….Here we go…….”
