Motley Crue in 2014


"But we finally made the news"
Mötley Crüe - You're All I Need - 1987

1/1/14
Vince 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.

2/1/14
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 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.

8/1/14
Vince participates in a signing appearance at the Marshall amplification booth as part of the Consumer Electronics Show held in the LasVegas Convention Centre.

11/1/14
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.

13/1/14
Nikki 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.

24/1/14
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 market place 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."

26/1/14
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.

28/1/14
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 of Crüe 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 Crüe and Alice Cooper – a match made in… Armageddon?”
 
The
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 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 annoucement. 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.

31/1/14
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."

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!"
