Motley Crue in 2014

Vince Neil rings in the New Year with a headline performance in front of a packed crowd at the Fremont St Experience, right after the midnight countdown led by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman. It’s the city’s largest private New Year’s Eve party with nine hours of non-stop entertainment over three stages that includes bands Papa Roach, Blues Traveler, Loverboy, and Adelitas Way.

A Californian Superior Court judge dismisses the lawsuit filed against Mötley Crüe by Howard Scott King back in September 2012, which claimed he gave Tommy Lee the idea for his 360-degree rollercoaster drum set that he used on tour in recent years. The judge determines that King never had exclusive rights to the roller-coaster drum idea and Tommy designed his version on his own. Tommy is currently enjoying a family holiday on a tropical island in Fiji.

Vince participates in a signing appearance at the Marshall amplification booth as part of the Consumer Electronics Show held in the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

Mötley Crüe lands at #77 on Pollstar's 2013 Top 200 North American Tour chart, ahead of other hard rock/heavy metal bands Kiss, The Black Crowes, Iron Maiden, Soundgarden, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice Cooper and Def Leppard. The Crüe grossed $12.3 million in 43 North American shows last year. Their 148,496 tickets sold averaged 4,368 per show at a price of $82.83 each. The year's list is topped by Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney, The Rolling Stones and Beyonce.

Nikki Sixx says the final song Let It Haunt You for the new Sixx:A.M. album is finished tonight. After working in the studio all last weekend on the music, he feels the band is topping themselves artistically. Other song titles mentioned in recent days include Hyperventilate, and Stars.

Vince features on the cover of the latest issue of Food & Beverage Magazine, along with a story that focuses on his simple philosophy as the driving force behind all the Tatuado brand of spirits, vodka, tequila, rum, and his dynamic portfolio of restaurants. Vince says, "It's all about my simple philosophy: I want to bring to the marketplace a brand that people will call out for. First off, great tasting. Second, absolutely kick-ass packaging. Finally, a price that will not dent your wallet." Food & Beverage publisher Michael Politz says, "I am proud to have this rock legend start off the New Year for my readers. These new projects are obviously the next step in the great legacy of America's most notorious rocker."

During the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, Real Estate company Coldwell Banker commences a national marketing campaign for the awards season with the debut of a new sixty-second TV commercial titled Home Sweet Home. Created by Siltanen & Partners under the direction of Executive Creative Director Rob Siltanen, the ad features the classic Mötley Crüe ballad Home Sweet Home set to a montage of all the moments that make getting home at the end of the day so rewarding: kicking off your shoes, hopping on the couch, slipping into a warm bath. The spot closes with the hashtag #HomeRocks, pulling together the music connection.

Mötley Crüe holds a press conference dubbed "R.I.P: All Bad Things Must Come To An End" at Beacher’s Madhouse Theatre inside the Roosevelt Hotel in hometown Los Angeles to announce their last tour and the band's ultimate retirement after more than three decades together. "The Final Tour" presented by Dodge and produced by Live Nation is set to kick-off mid-year with seventy-two shows across North America with very special guest Alice Cooper, commencing on July 2 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before the band hits international territories in 2015.  The band arrives at the event in a black hearse with flamethrowers, while a brass band playing Dr. Feelgood leads the funeral procession inside to a stage set with headstones for each of the members.
To commence proceedings, former Toronto rock radio host Joey 'Vendetta' Scoleri hosts a Q&A session with panelists. Rick Franks, Live Nation's Regional President of North America Concerts, says each event will run for three-hours-plus and ticket prices will start at $20 to make it affordable to attend. The band's attorney Doug Mark of Mark Music & Media Law explains that all band members agree they want to hang it up while at the top of their game. They've seen many diluted brands and trademarks, and many bands playing wrong venues with wrong band members, so together they came up with a methodology for the members to overcome trademark law, partnership law, and shareholder agreements and do something that no touring band has done before – sign an agreement to contractually guarantee they are hanging it up once and for all.

Randy Cortese, Head of Advertising at Dodge, says the partnership with the band for the tour is a natural fit with their car brand. Kickstart My Heart will be used in the company's marketing creatives to celebrate two iconic and notorious American brands during Dodge's 100-year anniversary.

Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta, who discovered Taylor Swift, says a Country Music Tribute To Mötley Crüe will be released this summer as a joint venture between Motley Records, Eleven Seven Records, and Big Machine Records. He drops names like Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Eli Young Band, Cassadee Pope, and LeAnn Rimes as artists contributing their versions ofCrüe classics.

Director of The Dirt movie Jeff Tremaine says for the last two years he's been knee-deep in getting the film script right, to ensure the voice of the band's best-selling book is properly captured, and this stage of the process is just about complete. His goal is to be shooting the movie this June, and while there is no casting to talk about yet, they have ideas. The Final Tour will coincide with The Dirt film that is being prepared to debut in theaters globally in 2015.

Alice Cooper then spends some time on stage and is press quoted as saying, “Real hard rock bands are hard to find these days. Mötley has always gone on stage with one attitude and that's to blow the audience away. That's exactly how we do it. Putting Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper together is going to be just what this summer really NEEDS. We’re going to go out there and tear it up, and I can't wait to see Mötley on stage. Mötley Crüeand Alice Cooper – a match made in… Armageddon?”
Mötley Crüe band members then take their seats and when asked what they will do once the tour ends, Vince says he will continue with his restaurant businesses and will continue to sing Mötley Crüe on stage as a solo artist. Nikki says he will keep active with his band Sixx: A.M., his Sixx Sense radio show, and will continue to make music. Tommy says he has some big surprises in store that he can't talk about just yet, while Mick Mars says he recently moved to Nashville and will work with lots of musicians to seriously pursue a very diverse solo album, as well as release a book about his life.

Members of the press ask questions and the band says they are in the beginning stages of working out the tour production and stage for The Final Tour, which is expected to last two years or more by the time they take the show around the world. When asked if the band's last studio album Saints of Los Angeles will be their last, Nikki says, "You will just have to see." After a photo opportunity with global media, they then become the first-ever band to sign a binding Cessation of Touring Agreement to prevent the Mötley Crüe trademark being used for touring in the future; any of them can sue for damages if one of them tries to tour as Mötley Crüe and breeches the agreement that comes into effect at the end of 2015.

Following the press conference, the band trends at number one on Facebook ahead of President Obama and his State of the Union address.

Along with actors Morgan Freeman and Anna Faris, Mötley Crüe guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and performs on the show's outdoor stage to celebrate the day's big announcement. Kickstart My Heart is televised to close the show, and the band also plays Primal Scream, Wild Side, Shout At The Devil, and Live Wire for the crowd.

Speaking further about his post-
Mötley Crüe plans, Mick says he hasn’t started any work on his book or figured out who he wants to write with, or help him write it. In regards future touring, he says he’ll probably put together, “a cool band with some cool friends of mine and stuff, and go out and do some… you know, a few weeks here and a few weeks there, touring… but not as the Mick Mars Band; I won't do that. You'll see a name, and you'll go, 'Hey, who's that?' 'I don't know' That's the name of the band."

The Bloody Beetroots premieres a video for their song Raw that features a shirtless Tommy playing drums (with most of his front torso tattoos covered up).
Responding to a question on Twitter, Nikki says he recorded a song with rapper Riff Raff the other day.
Courtney Love is recording a new album at Tommy’s Atrium Studios, and Tommy says he’s rocking some drums on it.

When asked what he plans on doing once Mötley has finished touring, Mick says, "I've got quite a few things in the fire: I write commercials. I could do things for movies. They always look for musical excerpts for car chases and scary monster pieces. I will be writing with John Corabi for his album. With Twiggy, as well, from Marilyn Manson. I have a lot of things I want to do and people who want to write with me!"

In Nashville, country artist Justin Moore plays a concert as part of Country Radio Seminar week. Towards the end of his set, he leaves the stage and a video of
Mötley Crüe plays, before Vince walks on stage with Brantley Gilbert and they perform Wild Side. After Vince tells the crowd about the forthcoming country tribute to Mötley Crüe album, Gilbert leaves and Moore comes back on stage to close the show with Vince singing Home Sweet Home, Dr. Feelgood and an encore of Kickstart My Heart. Nikki also attends the show and the seminar to help promote the album.

Tommy plays drums for The Bloody Beetroots at Sanremo Music Festival 2014 in Sanremo, Italy.

Tommy proposes to his girlfriend Sofia Toufa in St. Tropez on the French Riviera, and tells the world, "There comes a time in a man's life when you just know your partner is for LIFE! Say hello to my fiancée and soon-to-be wife, Sofi."

Vince performs at the Keep Memory Alive Center in Las Vegas for the benefit event to raise awareness about the neurological disorder multiple system atrophy (MSA). Bill Murray is one of the show's emcees, while other artists that perform include Slash, Alice Cooper, and Matt Sorum.

During a radio interview with Eddie Trunk, Mick says he has written six new songs in the past week in his home studio, which will be in contention for his solo album. He also just wrote a new song with Nikki and they plan to finish it up during next couple of months in time for Mötley's last tour. When discussing his Ankylosing Spondylitis, Mick says he hasn't driven in fifteen years because he can’t turn his head. He sold his red '76 Corvette recently (that fans have seen featured in the band’s mid-‘80s Uncensored home video) and donated proceeds to benefit A.S. research.

Mick is the guest on VH1 Classic's TV program That Metal Show. 

Nikki and Tommy sit in on the first table read for the
Mötley Crüe movie The Dirt with all the actors. Nikki says, "What a thrill and crazy adventure. Great writers, producers, directors and team around this project. To me, it feels like a dysfunctional love story about four misfits who survive because at our core, we are really a gang. But here is the big question: what's the rating on this gonna be - XXX?" Tommy says, "What a surreal experience that was! Lost for words! Wow!"

Guitar World shoots Nikki and Mick in Los Angeles for the cover of an upcoming issue of their magazine.

Entertainment Tonight airs the first of a three-part special on Nikki and Courtney's wedding preparations. The segment features Courtney at Janene's Bridal Boutique in Northern California, which is owned by her Aunt. Her dress is inspired by the one Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Oscars last year (and took a tumble in.)

Nikki marries Courtney Bingham at the Greystone Estate in Beverly Hills, California during a French-themed ceremony in front of one hundred and thirty family members and close friends, who are greeting by peacocks upon arrival. Fifty-five-year-old Nikki wears a bandana with his black suit and tie plus Converse sneakers, and is adorned with silver Chrome Hearts jewellrey. Twenty-eight-year-old Courtney wears a cream coloured gown featuring an elaborately designed bodice and a very full skirt with a pleated hem. They eat Courtney's favourite cake: triple berry from Sweet Lady Jane. After the event, Nikki writes, "Thank you for all the congratulations on our wedding today. We had a fucking blast to say the least. Today was a perfect day." He also tweets, "Tommy and Mick declined to come to my wedding, but Vince was there in great spirits." The newlyweds then honeymoon in a private bungalow at St Regis resort on the tropical island of Bora Bora.

John Corabi plays his first gig with son Ian on the drums behind him. The show at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville coincides with the twentieth anniversary of the self-titled Mötley Crüe album he sang and played guitar on.

Premiere Networks announces that Kerri Kasem, co-host of Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx, has decided to step down from her hosting duties with the national rock music radio programs. Kasem breaks the news to listeners on air, sharing that her decision to leave the programs after more than four years stems from the time commitment necessary to join Nikki on the road for Mötley Crüe's final tour, as well as her other radio hosting duties, upcoming projects and philanthropic efforts. Details regarding a new co-host for both programs will be announced next week. Nikki says, "It's been great having Kerri as a co-host for the past four years. I'm so proud of the work Sixx Sense has done to provide two top-level rock radio programs to millions of listeners worldwide. Although she will be missed, I fully support her new endeavours."

Premiere Networks announces that veteran radio personality Jenn Marino will return to her first passion, rock radio, as she joins Nikki from tomorrow as co-host of "Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx" and "The Side Show Countdown With Nikki Sixx." The Oklahoma City native previously served as co-host of the popular afternoon program Priestly & Jenn on Baltimore's WWMX-FM. Marino says, "I'm incredibly excited for this insane opportunity. I've been a fan of Nikki for years, and respect him not only as a radio host, but also as an artist. I look forward to creating something incredible with him and the entire Sixx Sense team. To say this is a dream job is an understatement." Nikki says, “From the moment I met Jenn, we had great chemistry. Not only does she have a strong connection to the world of rock music, but she's also charming, funny and relatable. I think the audience is going to love her, and I couldn't be more excited to welcome her to the team." Sixx Sense is a popular rock music program that airs reaches 2.9 million weekly listeners on more than 100 stations nationwide.

At the Revolver Golden Gods event at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, producer James Michael says he’s working with
Mötleyon what may turn out to be the band’s final song. "As we know, the Crüe is getting ready to hang it up. And we discussed for a while doing a final song, and that's a tall order. There was a lot of pressure on us to make sure that we did it right and that we celebrated everything that they were known for. So I think we've done it. I'm actually tracking drums with Tommy tomorrow. And it's an outstanding song. I think it's gonna be an absolutely amazing way to go out swinging."

Following media reports of Vince having bought the Arena Football League team the Jacksonville Sharks and planning on relocating the team to Las Vegas, Vince states, “I would like to clear up any confusion surrounding me and the Jacksonville Sharks. Firstly, yes, me and a couple of businessmen from Florida did acquire a minority share in the Sharks. No, I never said I was 'bringing' a team anywhere. I did say since I live in Las Vegas I would love to see a team there in the next few years. I am very focused on the Sharks, and looking forward to a great season!”

Yesterday, Jacksonville Sharks managing partner Jeff Bouchy released a statement saying, “There have been several reports in different media outlets over the past several days regarding Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe becoming an owner of the Jacksonville Sharks and possibly relocating the team to the Las Vegas market. Simply stated, the Jacksonville Sharks are neither relocating to the Las Vegas market nor planning to ever leave our great city of Jacksonville. We are currently in talks with Vince Neil about becoming a minority owner of the Jacksonville team, but those discussions do not include moving the team to another market, and as of now, neither Vince Neil nor Rockstar Investment Group, Inc. own any part of the Jacksonville Sharks. We have been in discussions with Vince Neil over the past several months. If a deal is reached, he will own a minority interest and will help us elevate the Sharks brand on a local and national level and we, in turn, will help educate his group about the great sport of arena football and all aspects of its business. Vince Neil has aspirations to create a future expansion team in his current home of Las Vegas, Nevada, which has led to the confusion with the media. If we are fortunate enough to have a rock legend join our ownership group, it could happen as early as this week.

In a Guitar World interview, Mick says the new song the band is working on is one he recently wrote with Nikki called All Bad Things Must Come To An End.

Nikki says Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins is going to play on some of the new Sixx: A.M. album, adding, "What a fucking honor 'cause he is one of my favorite drummers." The band is planning a photoshoot for the album's artwork, which will take place in the next few weeks.

Smashing Pumpkins' main man Billy Corgan says Tommy has played drums on all nine songs being recorded for a forthcoming studio album titled Monuments To An Elegy expected to be released next year.

After working on a cool cover song yesterday, Sixx: A.M. band members spend the day with photographer Paul Brown shooting images in the desert for their new album artwork.

Nikki, Vince and Mick spend time in Nashville doing press for the upcoming country tribute to
Mötley Crüe. Nikki says he is having fun, “promoting this amazing tribute album to theCrüe. We're about to be in the video for the first single off the album: Home Sweet Home by Justin Moore.

Vince presents an award at the CMT Music Awards held in Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Earlier in the night, he walked the red carpet with country singer Justin Moore, who tells press that his next radio single will be his version of Home Sweet Home.

After finishing the recording all his drums for the new Smashing Pumpkins record yesterday, Tommy joins his
Mötley Crüeband mates for the first day of their tour rehearsals. Nikki says, "Our stage set will knock your dick in the dirt, even of you don't have one."

Nikki says, "Been in band rehearsal with the guys. Lots of surprises: worked up a new song we just wrote and recorded; might bust that out live before we even go to radio with it."

After a week of
Mötley Crüe tour rehearsals in Los Angeles, Nikki says he is really excited to shoot the Sixx:A.M. video for their song Gotta Get It Right this weekend with Paul Brown directing.

Nikki hosts a promotional event for rock band Queen at the iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank, California. The warm-up show with four hundred fans takes place in advance of their upcoming tour with singer Adam Lambert and includes the first-ever live performance of the Freddie Mercury solo track Love Kills, along with seven of their classic hits. The show was also taped for broadcast via Yahoo. Queen's online tour diary makes mention of Nikki’s involvement, calling him a "great songwriter, an engaging radio host and huge music fan, plus, I must say that album that M
ötley did with John Corabi in 1994 just smokes, the best thing the Crüe ever did to my ears."

Vince has been approved to create a new Arena Football League team in Las Vegas next year, several sources throughout the league confirm. The expansion team will be in place in time for the 2015 season and Vince has asked for AFL approval of Las Vegas Outlaws as the team's name.

The Final Tour for
Mötley Crüe kicks off at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It's the band's biggest stage production of their career, which features a drum rollercoaster dubbed "The Crüecifly" that spins 360 degrees as it tracks fifty-five-feet high over the audience over two-hundred feet to the back of the arena floor, plus an unbelievable amount of fire pyrotechnics and a state-of-the-art light show. The band commences their set with Mutherfucker Of The Year, and as often is the case on opening night, the show experiences some technical issues, including Tommy putting a hole in his bass drum during the third song and Mick's guitar cutting out as they're about to debut All Bad Things Must End – a brand-new song that was played over the PA before they hit the stage. Tommy plays along to an electronic mixtape during his solo, which also includes part of Dropping Like Flies from the 1994 self-titledMötley Crüe album. After nineteen songs, the band plays an encore of Home Sweet Home on a rising platform stage at the back of the arena to close out an impressive first show of their final tour.

ötley changes their set-list up somewhat by opening with Saints Of Los Angeles, but most significantly by dropping new song All Bad Things Must End after five shows and adding Looks That Kill to the list instead.

Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley credits Tommy, Iggy Pop and Duff McKagan with helping him stay sober after years of heavy drinking caught up with him earlier this year when his liver and kidneys collapsed, leaving him hospitalised for a month. Whibley tells Kerrang that Tommy "told me what to expect from people, that not everyone will understand."

Nikki's wife Courtney tells Radar, "When the tour is over we intend to have a little rocker of our own! I am so excited to have my first baby with the love of my life." The newly-weds moved into a new home in California's Westlake Village earlier this week, with Courtney saying, "We are very excited for the move into our dream home this week. I am decorating it with my HOW2GIRL expertise. Think Ralph Lauren meets Rockstar!"

The LA Times says Nikki's new mansion in Westlake Village cost $4.125 million and has 10,300 square feet of living space. He has listed his former Californian home in the gated community The Oaks of Calabasas for sale at $2.399 million through Keller Williams real estate, after he originally purchased it for $1.89 million in 2011. Set on a third-acre corner lot at 3885 Prado Del Trigo and designed for entertaining, the stone-clad house features wood floors, an office with built-ins, a loft, a music room/home theater, four bedrooms and five bathrooms. A waterfall sits in the garden courtyard. A swimming pool, spa and barbecue center with fireplace and pizza oven complete the grounds. After two months, the home sells for $2.409 million.

Modern Vintage is announced as the title of the third studio album from Sixx:A.M. The album will be released on October 7, following next week's release of first single Gotta Get It Right to radio and iTunes on August 5, with a video premiere on Vevo the following day. Nikki says, "Like our favourite bands from the 1970s, Sixx: A.M. is rooted in song writing, musicianship and lyrics - three core elements that helped to define that era. Sixx: A.M. has taken even more pages from this book on Gotta Get It Right and the rest of Modern Vintage, having hopefully created a record that demands to be discovered again and again."

Nikki says Sixx:A.M. has just finished four bonus tracks and are discussing vinyl as a release format for their latest music, while promising they have a few other tricks up their sleeve too.

Mötley Crüe lands at number two on Pollstar's Hot Tours tally, based on $12.5 million in reported ticket sales from the first sixteen sold-out shows of The Final Tour. The top-grosser is their recent hometown concert at the Hollywood Bowl, where the performed for 16,488 fans, logging $1.3 million in ticket sales. Sir Paul McCartney takes number one spot on the chart, while Billy Joel lands behind theCrüe at number three.

Billboard reports the covers album Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute To
Mötley Crüe lands on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart at number five with first-week sales of thirty-one thousand copies, while also opening at number two on the Top Country Albums chart. The album features such top country acts as Rascal Flatts, Florida Georgia Line, LeAnn Rimes and Brantley Gilbert performing Mötley Crüe songs. The album also includes two tracks by country artists who first achieved prominence in rock bands. Darius Rucker, who rose to fame fronting Hootie & The Blowfish, has amassed six number one country hits since 2008. He performs the Crüe's 1989 album track Time For Change. Aaron Lewis, lead singer of the hard rock band Staind, has had a sideline career as a country artist since 2011. He sings theCruue's 1997 album track Afraid.

Nikki spends the day working in Fords, New Jersey record store Vintage Vinyl to promote Modern Vintage, the forthcoming album by Sixx: AM, with a special giveaway. Fans who pre-ordered copies of Modern Vintage at the store received a limited-edition (300 were made) 7" vinyl single of Gotta Get It Right b/w Life Is Beautiful. Nikki's partners in Sixx: AM, DJ Ashba and James Michael, are in the middle of a European promotional trip for the album.

After performing on stage in pain over the last few months, Nikki undergoes surgery for a double hernia. He says, "I got surgery on both sides and it went really really well. I should be up and kicking ass in a few weeks and back in the gym/tour in 6 weeks. It feels like I got kicked in the stomach by a horse; they gave me some pain meds but I am trying to not take them." Some fans think the operation was actually a vasectomy reversal to make it possible for him to have the baby his new wife has recently spoken about.

Vince tells the LA Weekly, "Rumour has it, the last few shows are going to be Vegas and LA, because we wanted to end in 2016 in Los Angeles where we started." The tentative plan, according to Vince, is for the Crüe to play a "couple of nights" in Las Vegas at the tail-end of 2015. “After New Year's, we’ll do three nights at one of the arenas in LA and then do a special show at the Whisky A Go-Go on our 35th anniversary."

Mötley Crüe performs on day one of the iHeartRadio Music Festival held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, playing Home Sweet Home, Girls Girls Girls, and Kickstart My Heart. There are no headliners at the two-day music festival; all artists play the same amount of time.
