As Mötley Crüe prepares for THE FINAL TOUR, fans are snapping up tickets for their last chance to see the iconic band perform live. Anticipation is at an all-time high, with dates quickly selling out across the country. Kicking off in North America on July 2 with a sold out show at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, MI, the tour will reach 72 markets before hitting international territories in 2015.

Shows close to selling out or already completely SOLD OUT include dates in Michigan (the tour opener in Grand Rapids 7/2 and 8/9 in Clarkston, MI), Texas (Cedar Park on 7/15 and Houston on 10/11), California (Los Angeles on 7/21 and Irvine on 7/22), the Northeast Casinos (Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ on 10/25 and Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT on 10/26) and Canada (Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary shows), as well as

Mötley Crüe’s agent at Artist Group International, Peter Pappalardo explains, “Mötley Crüe has proven again that they are a premier touring artist. It will be one of the biggest tours of 2014 and promoters around the world are clamoring to participate.”

After more than three decades together, rock ‘n roll icons Mötley Crüe announced their retirement earlier this year, signing a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, effective at the end of the 2015 touring cycle. Mötley Crüe has partnered with Dodge, the presenting sponsor of The FINAL TOUR (produced by Live Nation), for many unique initiatives, one of which is the nationwide “Dodge Chance to Be Bad Giveaway”. Fans have an opportunity to win a 2015 Dodge Charger or Challenger, an ultimate Mötley Crüe VIP experience that includes meeting the band and other prizes, such as autographed guitars, band collector’s items and tickets to the notorious rock band’s shows. “The excitement at Dodge continues to grow as we approach the first date of The Final Tour. Now more than ever we are confident that the aligning of our two brands will create epic experiences that both Dodge and Mötley Crüe fans will talk about for many years to come. All bad things must come to an end? Actually, we’re just getting started,” exclaims Randy Ortiz, head of Dodge Brand Advertising.

Another prominent partnership, with BIG MACHINE RECORDS (home to country superstars such as Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw), sees the release of the highly anticipated country tribute album, entitled NASHVILLE OUTLAWS: A TRIBUTE TO MÖTLEY CRÜE, on August 19 via a joint venture with the band’s label, Mötley Records and Eleven Seven Music. To commemorate their 33 years of success, the album will feature fresh takes on 15 of the band’s biggest hits, covered by some of country music’s biggest names including Florida Georgia Line, Big & Rich, LeAnn Rimes, Brantley Gilbert, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts and more. The album will be available for pre-order on July 1, the same day as the first single, “Home Sweet Home” by Country star Justin Moore hits radio. Vince Neil guested on the track and all four Mötley Crüe band members are featured in the accompanying video premiering the same day as well with an exclusive first look on Rolling Stone Country and Rolling Stone. Big Machine President and CEO, Scott Borchetta, is among the legion of country music fans who love Mötley Crüe. Borchetta says of the collaboration, “I have been a not-so-secret Crüe fan from the beginning. When manager Chris Nilsson called with the idea for a tribute album on Big Machine Records it was an immediate ‘yes’ from me! Our album will highlight just how great the Mötley Crüe song catalog is. At the end of the day, that’s what will stand the test of time.”

The band’s NY Times Best Selling book, THE DIRT (which is being made into a movie, directed by Jeff Tremaine), will see its premier e-book release on July 1st, right as THE FINAL TOUR kicks off. You can also look for recent or fast-upcoming cover stories and lead features on Mötley Crüe in major publications, such as USA Today, DRUM Magazine, GUITAR WORLD Magazine, FAST COMPANY and BILLBOARD Magazine among MANY others with the maelstrom of activity affirming and celebrating Mötley Crüe yet again as one of the most prominent acts in music today.
