Is Motley Crue Finished?
The latest string of incidents plus Nikki Sixx’s recent comments have many wondering if Motley Crue is done for good.
Last week, Tommy Lee said he’s not doing fan meet and greets because he “doesn’t agree” with them. Over the weekend, Vince Neil was rushed to the hospital during a concert for emergency surgery and now Nikki Sixx says they could be finished very soon. Yikes!
Nikki wants to finish this tour and the movie version of their book, The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, release one more album, do one more tour and then check out. Nikki says “It’s important when you do a farewell tour that people understand that it’s never coming back. It’s the only way I can look at myself in the mirror and do a farewell tour. That’s it. So when we take our final bow, that’s it. I will cry.”
Meanwhile, Vince Neil was shipped off to an Australian hospital because he was dealing with kidney stones and it became too unbearable. Nikki said on the group’s Facebook page that Vince was in his dressing room doubled over on the floor five minutes before they were set to go on stage. The promoter even told him not to play but Vince said no and went out on stage anyway.
The group ended up cutting their set short so Vince could be seen and get treatment. Everything went well and Vince is resting comfortably. Motley Crue will resume their tour once he’s released.
