Motley Crue Final Farewell Tour Hits Hollywood, FL

Mötley Crüe is heading home sweet home. Well, home in the death sense. And yes, on this, their allegedly final tour, the "boys" are coming to South Florida, a place old folks have long used as their final abode.

As it turns out, one of the wildest bands of all time signed a "cessation of touring agreement" which is like the most Kevorkian way a group can disband and then never have to play "county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members," as Tommy Lee is quoted by CNN as saying.

They're heading out in July and hitting up something like 75 spots around the country. Consequence of Sound reports that Big Machine Records is also putting together a country tribute album where Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts, and others with twang will perform songs from the Crue-alogue.

They also note that Alice Cooper is likely the opening act for the huge tour. And you know we adore Alice who also recently played Hard Rock Live, where the Crüe will hit the stage on October 17, 2014 for the last time. And if you've never seen them live -- whether or not this is really the end -- it's worth the trip to the Seminole lands to watch Tommy Lee in his 360 drum roller coaster and Vince Neil sweat his way through "Girls Girls Girls."

Mötley Crüe on October 17, at Hard Rock Live, One Seminole Way, Hollywood. Tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m. Visit
