MÖTLEY CRÜE 

ANNOUNCE AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND DATE FOR ‘THE FINAL TOUR’

NEW ZEALAND’S FIRST AND LAST CHANCE TO SEE THE BAND LIVE! 

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2015 - Legendary rock icons MÖTLEY CRÜE have, at last, confirmed a highly anticipated, first-and-last-ever New Zealand date in Auckland on Saturday May 9, 2015 as part of their Final Tour, bringing along shock-rocker ALICE COOPER as very special guest.

The Final Tour marks the end of an era for the band. In January 2014, all four original members gathered to sign a binding ‘Cessation Of Touring’ agreement taking effect at the end of 2015 before a press conference in their hometown of Los Angeles and announcing the global two-year Final Tour. A year later, on January 20, 2015 in New York City, the band announced Mötley Crüe’s highly anticipated final live performance of the band to take place at LA’s Staples Centre on New Year’s Eve 2015.   The 2014 portion of ‘The Final Tour’ was one of last year’s top grossing US tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million USD.

New Zealand fans had better brace themselves: the mighty Crüe are bringing their high-energy show and all the hits with them, that have made the tour such a wildly successful, memorable experience for hundreds of thousands across the world. “My career focus has been on building artist’s careers –it’s kind of perversely cool to be responsible for ending one,” says Michael Coppel, President & CEO, Live Nation Australasia.

Bassist, Nikki Sixx says of the band’s visit, “We’re truly excited to come to New Zealand with the Final Tour and celebrate 34 years of Mötley Crüe with our fans in Auckland.  It’s the Final Tour but it’s not a farewell because our music will live on long after we’ve stopped touring.  We can’t wait to see everyone out there in May.”

Ensuring they farewell Australia in epic style, the inimitable Alice Cooper will accompany Mötley Crüe on all Australian dates as very special guest. The Hall Of Fame inductee continues to connect with Australian audiences via his broadly acclaimed radio show Nights With Alice Cooper, which airs on a variety of rock networks Australia-wide.

Once coined the most evil rock singer in the world, Alice Cooper recently suggested Crüe let him kill them on stage, “That finishes everything. Four guillotines, floomp! Done!” he enthused. While his villainous vision may not be realised, an equally evil performance is guaranteed as Cooper unleashes his hard rock classics.

Thirty-four years into one of the most tumultuous and staggeringly successful careers in the history of rock music, Mötley Crüe continue to command unwavering allegiance from fans of all ages. The classic line-up of Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars still packs a powerful punch and they’re ready to show New Zealand audiences why Mötley Crüe will go down in history as one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Coinciding with the announcement of the final dates and the theme of the Final Tour, the band also released its new single “All Bad Things,” which is available for sale digitally here. The single is accompanied by a video clip of highlights spanning the 34-year career of Mötley Crüe which can be found here.

    Hey there Alice,

    I am trying to find out where I can buy a VIP Meet & Greet Package for the Perth WA Australia Tour.

    AS my hubby & I are really big fans of your and our wedding anniversary & his birthday is coming up and I would love nothing more than to be able to give him a VIP Meet & Greet with Alice Cooper for his birthday & our anniversary.

    I have been looking everywhere and so far I cant seem to see where I can get a VIP Meet & Greet package for him for Alice Cooper as I would hate to miss out on the chance to give him such a once in a life time opportunity.

    I have been watching the following page on a daily basis http://www.alicecooper.com/tour-dates/
    but I see today that there are only tickets on sale and no mention of a VIP meet & Greet option…..oh please please tell me that we will have the option to meet with Alice Cooper when he comes to Perth with Motley Crew……

    Ok well I am keeping my fingers crosses that I hear back from someone in relation to this matter.

    May you have a great day!

    Best Regards
    Sharon
