They're doing one more tour and that's it...
Dr. Feelgood is closing up his practice. TMZ reports that Motley Crue announced their retirement as a band on Tuesday at a news conference in Hollywood. The band, who was a key player in the hard rock scene of the 1980s and 1990s with songs like "Smokin' in the Boys Room," "Home Sweet Home," "Girls, Girls, Girls," "Dr. Feelgood," "Kickstart My Heart" and "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)," will go on one final seventy-two date tour kicking off soon, with tickets going on sale tomorrow and Alice Cooper opening for them.
The band was founded in 1981 in Los Angeles, California. The original line-up of Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil and Tommy Lee will reunited in 2004 and will be the final line-up. The band has also collectively agreed never to use the name again after this tour, putting a kibosh on potential reunions.
