    MÖTLEY CRÜE To Embark On Farewell Tour In 2003 - Sep. 5, 2002

    MÖTLEY CRÜE will embark on a farewell tour in late 2003/early 2004 to coincide with the release of the film version of the group's autobiography, The Dirt, bassist Nikki Sixx has revealed via his latest posting on the band's official web site.

    "Been knee-deep in getting all the T's crossed and I's dotted with Paramount Pictures and MTV Films for the MÖTLEY CRÜE movie," Sixx wrote. "If all goes well there will be a farewell tour, an amazing soundtrack and a movie all hitting in late 2003/early 2004."

    Nikki also unveiled for the first time the details of his project with L.A. GUNS axeman Tracii Guns, which also features in its ranks ADEMA's Kris Kohl on drums and a curiously-named London on lead vocals (a second guitarist will be added later).

    "We've been finishing demos at my house until Tracii and Kris return from tour," Nikki offered. "I'd say it's a cross between Shout [At The Devil]-era [MÖTLEY] CRÜE, first [GUNS N' ROSES], SOUNGARDEN and JANE'S ADDICTION. The songs are cool, but holy fuck, does this band cook. London is one of the best singers I've ever heard. Imagine if [DEEP PURPLE's] Ian Gillian and old-school Axl [Rose] had a baby…it would be London.

    "I can't believe that's his name," the bassist continued. "I mean, come on.. They say god has a sense of humor…but gimme a break."

    According to Sixx, the as-yet-unnamed group will perform several gigs in the Los Angeles area in a few months. "Gotta pop that cherry someplace."

    If the tour includes Tommy Lee on drums, I'm in.
    If not, I'm out.

    I'll bet you it does happen.

    While at the Ozzfest show at Blockbuster this past weekend, Tommy told the audience that Nikki was on the side of the stage, and he pointed to his left. Anyone up close was able to see him, but for all of us in the cheap seats, we couldn't. So, if they're (finally) talking (seeing as how Nikki never agreed with Tommy's musical taste and his idea of leaving), I'm sure it'll happen.

    Much sooner before we see anything happen with VH, that is.

I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    I agree with the earlier post by P1. Tommy Lee was the shit with the Crue. No Tommy, no Crue. Out.

    Motley Crue is Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Vince Neil. No more, no less.

    I'd like to see the tour since I never saw them live in their prime.

    I saw the Crue in their prime, been a fan since "Too Fast for Love" came out. Love their music. I can do without the "goofiness" sometimes, but if they get the original band back together for a tour, you bet I'll go to see that.

    Tommy Lee can really play the drums !!

    Is this a real farewell tour, a KI$$ farewell tour, a Who farewell tour, or do we really care?
