Motley Crue Launching 'The Final Tour'

Motley Crue's Tommy Lee admits he's feeling mixed emotions as the band launches their "Final Tour." 

The rocker tells USA Today that he's "extremely happy and proud" that the group is "leaving a good thing alone," but he's also "extremely sad" that it's ending. 

However, Lee says he's very pleased that "nobody will be able to say, 'Look at those old guys playing the county fair.  They should have tapped out years ago.'"  He's also excited about what the group has in store for the fans. 

On "The Final Tour" Lee will debut his new drum roller coaster, which he calls "an insane game-changer."  But that's the only detail Tommy - or his bandmates - will reveal about their show. 

Motley Crue is planning to go out with a high-production, hit-packed show designed to appeal to the fans.  The group stopped concerning themselves with the critics decades ago.  Lee admits that part of the band's appeal is their decadence because "people gravitate toward the crazy, like going to a car to see a crash." 

But bassist Nikki Sixx adds that even "the most outrageous act on Earth" wouldn't last without "the songs to back it up," and Crue's 30-plus-year history speaks for itself.  Motley Crue's extensive "Final Tour" begins in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Wednesday.  Alice Cooper will also perform.
